Re: X-Force Cat back now available @SolisMotorgroup

Well, it's on. Took a little longer than I was planning, but that was due to the fact that the old system weighs something like 100lbs and I wanted to take it off all in one piece so I could reinstall if needed someday.

I purchased new 1/2 stainless bolts/washers/nuts to connect the cat back system to the front flanges. The old spring loaded bolts could be used, but I was having an issue trying to tighten them w/o the bolts slipping.

VERY VERY happy with the sound. Kinda close to my 2015 392-Challenger. A little loud but not annoying. Even 4cy mode is very pleasant. Just a very mild amount of drone, a lot like the Challenger's factory exhaust.

The only improvement I would suggest is that the tips are a little low in the openings. Going to mess with it a little more tomorrow to see if I can make any fine tuning alignments, but not sure how since it hangs from the factory pins and rubber connectors.

Overall, it's an A in my book. I'll try to put up some pics tomorrow.

Great news! There are several videos from our customers floating around on Instagram. They have the same results. For the price point you really can go wrong. Thanks again for your business.

Re: X-Force Cat back now available @SolisMotorgroup

Update on the X-force Cat back. It has gotten a little louder, but still a very nice level. 1300-1700 RPM is about the loudest, but not anything annoying. Rather loud at idle in park, but a very deep good sound. I have a real nasty neighbor on one side of me and I'm sure it annoys them on a cold start. Good. lol

The tips are a little out of center in the openings. Going to try to adjust things a little, but not much adjustment for that. Going to try a few different rubber hangers. But hey, $800+ for a polished stainless cat back that sounds that good!!! Still an A in my book!

SolisMotorGroup was very helpful and fast shipping! An "A" for them too!

Re: X-Force Cat back now available @SolisMotorgroup

So any confirmation on how you go about putting varex system in the SRT. Do you first get the CAT back system and then get the varex mufflers welded in?
What size do we need in the SRT?

This is the email I got back from them asking eta and price.

"Thank you for your inquiry. We are currently still working with our prototype system to make sure is suitable for release, once we have completed this production will be underway

We are yet to confirm exact ETA as of yet so i could not confirm this right now, however late april early may would be best case scenario. The cat back system with Varex will be RRP$1950.00 excluding freight and fitting".
