My previous parts list has all the stuff needed to install, although, you really don't need the heat shields in the rear bumper for the Magnaflow. The muffler sits in the middle rear, but I did use some heat shielding tape (found at a local auto store) to wrap around the black wires shown in the last pic. There is just enough sound from the Magnaflow, very close to the single exhaust audio clip found on their website. I love the sound and looks of this mod, well worth it!
Thanks for all the info but the big question is how much did all this cost?

Re: 3.6 dual exhaust

I dont plan on doing a dyno, places around me are to far for convience and want to much money.

Price for the mod depends on which exhaust you choose. You have a few choices:
1. mopar
2. borla
3. corsa
4. magnaflow

Since all the labor was done myself, the only money spent was on parts.
1. bumper/exgaust parts from factory mopar parts - approx. $260
2. magnaflow exhaust found new - approx. $870

Total for mod when installing yourself is approx $1,130

**wild card being how much you score an exhaust for. I believe one member got a V8 take-off for $50, which would bring your total cost to $310!

Yeah a little, not sure if its in my head but it feels more responsive.

Gas mileage has definitely gone down due to my lead foot. I'm usually always on the throttle but now I do it more often to hear the exhaust. It's definitely much more fun to drive.

Re: 3.6 dual exhaust

Looks like there is a takeoff exhaust system from a Hemi on ebay for $99 in New Jersey right now. A little too far for me to drive, but looks like a good deal for someone interested in trying the swap.
