Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

I went to Lou's custom exhaust and had them just cut the resonators off and new double wall 3 1/2" tips.I love the sound.Nice little rumble at idle and not loud at speed.$180.00.

You mean with your factory exhaust system?

I was wondering if that would work, I read about the resonator deletes for the charger/magnum/300 cars, they seem to have a similar exhaust layout with the suitcase muffler under the car and large resonators in the rear like the wk2. Would love to hear a sound clip of that.

Yes, Corsa Mfrs for Mopar. They are considered to be the less droning of all the available exhausts. That said, MDS sounds like s*^T on the outside when it comes on. Great under full throttle though.

I have a custom magnaflow setup on mine with the front resonator deleted and replaced with an H-pipe. I have two 14842 race core 6" round mufflers with 4" tips (they look bigger honestly) welded on where the rear mufflers were. It is at least twice as loud as Magnaflow's kit for the WK2 but I wanted it that way. It has some drone when cruising at 1400-1500 RPM but not much considering how loud it is at full throttle. It does crackle a little at WOT (steel wool and glass packed mufflers tend to crackle more than chambered or turbo style) but even the corsa crackles at WOT on the 5.7 WK2 and it has a lot more mufflers. For pure deep nasty sound but kinda poor flow due to chambered design a set of original 40 series flowmasters are hard to beat on any V8 IMHO.

It's a manual step you would need to do after each startup, but it may help.
Just hit the Tow-Haul switch and it automaticly does it it for you.Gear 5 and no MDS.

Re: Magnaflow for WK2 5.7L installed

Question. I've listened to YouTube clips of magnaflow, borla, corsa and hack jobs, and I am really loking the magnaflow takeoff sound. But that's all I've heard. What does this drone sound sound like? Is there a distinct and noticeable tone change the milisecond the MDS kicks in, or is it just a constant tone when cruising? I can totally deal with the latter, that's the nature of exhaust systems. A crazy tone change every time the MDS starts is a deal breaker.

Ogbred,

With the resonators off, what is the drone like at cruise speeds?

I was going to remove the muffler and and leave the resonators, but perhaps this will produce a better result. That muffler is huge and seems like it must be doing the bulk of the work.

Any further feedback on your experience would be much appreciated.

Phisch, in the case of the Borlas, a slight drone only occurs at low or no throttle (coasting) and while in MDS. Otherwise, they are nicely aggressive. Others report little to no drone with the Magnaflow's with a bit more mellow notes in general. YMMV.
