Swapping the suitcase muffler

I think there is a large amount of us wanting to do some type of exhaust without spending 1800 bucks.
YouTube has been pretty limited with reviews and the majority of the videos have poor sound quality.

I think deleting the resonators is a bad idea if you are looking for no drone. Seems like with them removed there is a good amount of rasp.

Swapping the suitcase with a H-pipe or x-pipe gives off a lot of rasp as well.

I think a actual muffler would be best for swapping the suitcase.

Does anyone have the suitcase dimensions? Kinda need that to shop for a muffler
I've never been a fan of flowmaster but they have a big block muffler that seems like a good match based on my goals for a little sound at start up and wot and no drone.
I found a borla on amazon to.

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

Totally understand what you're saying. Even at my price, Corsa is too much for the whole catback. I am also looking at Flowmaster. I had one on the SS and loved it. I know there's a lot of hate for Flowmaster, but I tell ya, mine was pretty throaty.

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

I'm still shopping but have my heart set on a 2014 Hemi. First thing I want to do is upgrade the exhaust but I'm really turned off by the cost of the Borla and Corsa units. Subscribing to this thread! Thanks for taking this on.

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

I took my GC to a local Muffler Shop and they took the muffler off and put straight pipe there instead, sounds great now!

To me it's a perfect sound that's not too loud but you can defiantly hear the Hemi now, kinda sounds like an SRT. It was only $150 and if you don't like it you can always put new mufflers on or the old once back.

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

Not sure on the V6, but I've had great experience in the past with the Flowmaster 50 Series on a V8. Had one on my 5.9L Durango years ago and it was perfect. A low rumble at start/idle, no drone, and a great throat when you open her up.

Did it sound like a deep bass sound from a sub?

A little bit. It was noticeable but not in your face. Loud enough to set off some car alarms in a parking garage but only if you revved it.

50 series is quieter than the 40 series which is very loud.

Is the 50 series a three chamber and the 40 a two chamber? I have the three chamber on my 5.2L Dakota and I always thought it was perfect. Not wake the neighbors loud but louder than stock with a nice sound.

Correct. Due to the third chamber, the 50 series is also a few inches longer than the 2 chamber 40 series.
