Just Installed - Exhaust Bypass Valve

Guys,

Just installed 2x Exhaust Bypass Valves in my 2012 5.7l HEMI and am loving it. Was wondering if anyone installed this in their truck as well and what their thoughts were.

Was going to get the Corsa CatBack but wanted to try this to see how it sounds and so far its great!!

Regards,
Jared

Don't seem to be having any issues running it open or closed.

Does anyone else have this system on there GC?

Would love to get some feedback.

Re: Just Installed - Exhaust Bypass Valve

Do some checks on youtube, a number of different hemi vehicles doing runs with the bypass open, sounds greaaat!

you may have to search youtube for "exhaust cutout"

Re: Just Installed - Exhaust Bypass Valve

I was going to go this route but i got the Dynomax exhaust for 479. I like the idea of having the mean sound when you want and stock sounding when you don't. Probably should have gone this route

Re: Just Installed - Exhaust Bypass Valve

This looks sweet! Do they need to be professionally installed?

Can you record anything representative of how they sound on your vehicle?

Very cool concept! What was the total cost for parts and labor?
