HEMI exhaust options (that wont make me broke)

Just got a '13 and its way to quiet for me. im wondering if i can remove the rear most resonators and have pipes made or remove large muffler and leave rear resonators? im not looking to buy the corsa system but im also wary of getting a annoying drone.

Re: HEMI exhaust options (that wont make me broke)

I removed the large suitcase muffler up front and replaced with an X-Pipe, leaving the rear resonators. All in all it was about $120 with installation (quick easy weld at the local muffler shop) and it sounds pretty good IMO. It's a little tinny, which I like, and definitely adds some noise out of the exhaust.

I have a before/after of startup I can post later tonight once I'm home. As for drone, nothing thaet I've noticed when cruising at 65-70. I know it can be pretty subjective, I can try and get a video with the windows up.

Re: HEMI exhaust options (that wont make me broke)

I took my 2014 GC Overland 5.7L to a local shop and had them remove the cats custom fab an X-Pipe w/ 2 Magnaflow Magnapack mufflers 4" tips. Here is the exact setup on a Durango they let me hear as a sample.

It has a little rasp to it in sport mode and zero drone in 4 cylinder mode. It ran me $450 installed. I initially wanted Corsa but it was $2000 installed and that's laughable.

Man does that ever sound good And for a fraction of the price of the full exhaust system.
