5.7 Magnaflow Reso delete question...

Just had a question about chopping off my reso for future exterior mods. Has anyone ever chopped off the reso on their Magnaflow cat-back system or any reso for that matter? If so, was the drone insurmountably annoying and did it have any ill-affects to the performance your vehicle? Thank you in advance for your time. Sorry if this is a dumb question... genuinely curious as to what would happen.

Re: 5.7 Magnaflow Reso delete question...

i took my stock reso off and it sounded better IMO. but i had the exhaust re-done to route it out of the middle like the srt-8 because i got the rear bumper. i had a gibson reso with 4" tips installed and they just routed the exhaust from the rear axle and made a y-pipe to the reso.. sounds incredible. i'll post a pic in a sec

Hey Boss_Hemi,

Thanks for the info. That picture would help. Did you have to get rid of your spare? Yeah, I'm thinking I'm going to pull the trigger on the rear bumper. I am just on the fence about losing my hitch but i'm sure a your picture and scottina's pic will help me on my final decision

Re: 5.7 Magnaflow Reso delete question...

thanks alot bro! i love your headlight tints. im debating whether or not to sell it, nobody wants to offer what im asking because of how many miles it has so i might just keep it cuz i have no problems with it and i've put too much into it to give it up lol.

Hey boss_hemi, about how many miles does the magnaflow has? I am interested with it. Pretty much interested if you have the photos of your rig.
