In the picture in the first post of this thread, the two things that look like mufflers are actually resonators on the SRT's. The muffler are actually located about a foot in front of where his piping starts, or about a foot behind the cats. They are fundamentally different from the mufflers in terms of what they do to the sound.

Mufflers attempt to baffle or otherwise diffuse the sound, resonators attempt to straighten the airflow to minimize resonance.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

I know Jason. I was saying that because I chopped mine off when I had the Dynomax Bullet muffler installed in place of the suitcase muffler.





^No resonator.

It was a joke.


Thanks for the informative post for the newbies though.

Hell, even my stainlessworks 3" has mufflers and resonators. Only thing is mine doesn't have cats. And it sounds BADASS! Livable when you're just driving around, but when you get on it, all hell breaks loose.

IMHO, the resonators smoothe out your tone, but they do little to quiet it. TBH, I'm excited to hear what your 6 sounds like w/o a muffler. LOL, it'll probably be so throaty that it will make my SRT go run to the corner and piss itself.

Uh oh, so is what people are saying is it will sound really "loud" then? I heard scotts on his video with just the resinators and it sounded good IMO. I could always keep my magnaflow exhaust on and do a Y pipe out after that then, but I was going to copy cat scott and delete the muffler. And what does "BFW" mean? Is this thing going to be loud and maybe give me trouble getting my yearly inspection sticker?

And I actually didnt really knew what the resinators did until you just posted it, I never had resinators on any of my past GC's before.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

I just noticed you still have that plastic cover under the engine, I took mine off because when I changed the oil it would go all over the place on top of it and get all over my driveway. And what, do you clean the underside of your car too, because it looks so dam clean. lol.

I didn't think anyone actually wanted those things.

Im actually saving mostly everything stock I have removed and replaced on my WK for later when I sell it I will put it all back then sell the aftermarket parts on ebay.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

I was just outside looking under my bumper, is it even going to be possible to have these tips set up in the middle of the bumper like the SRT's do with my Laredo bumper? I planned on cutting it out and installing the trailer hitch bezel, or even just installing a black trim piece over the cut edge. But now im unsure if the top of the resinators will be hitting the bottom of the car, and im stuck with the tips being below the bottom edge of the bumper. dam it.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

you could do a quick fab up by removing the spare, sticking some bolts in the holes I show in my thread and hanging the resonators from thsat bolt to get an idea.....
