Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

Im so crazy in the head I kept playing that exhaust clip over and over again while staring at my car wondering if the sound will match the car, and I do think it would sound pretty sick.

Ive come to realize that im stuck with the tips below my Laredo bumper now, because the frame is in the way for me to get it up high enough. I think the only way to have the tips high enough coming out thru my bumper is to delete the resinators with a straight pipe then cut the hangers and have the pipes almost right to the cars frame. I was under there playing with the resinators and see that they are slanted downwards, which is good because I was worried they would be seen, but because my cars lowered I think they should be hidden fairly good.

Im still up in the air if I should keep the magnaflow muffler. If anything I think having the dual srt 2.75" pipes back there it would make the exhaust louder than my single 2.5" pipe right now. Any thoughts?

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

I have no idea how it will sound on a 3.7.

Dude. You're making this way too hard. Run some magnaflow bullet style mufflers. Thank me later.

Yea, I know. But hey thats what I do, think about things before I do them. I very close to installing it now, just want to figure out if I rather leave my magnaflow muffler on or delete it. Took me a few days to accept that the tips will have to be below the bumper, but think it will look pretty good now.

So what is it your saying, you think I should run 2 magnaflow bullet style mufflers with theses srt resinators and tips? Not sure why id go out and buy 2 more magnaflow mufflers when I already have one on right now, and wouldnt having 2 make it sound less loud than it is right now?

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

With or without resonators, that's your call.

The sound characteristics of the muffler itself (even different mufflers of the same brand name) depend wildly on the setup itself.

The oval Mags (especially those used in the catback kits) are very mellow and dont provide much tone. The round bullet style Mags offer much more of a "raw" tone, all the while still eliminating the undesirable acoustics that come with running straight pipes. IMO, the round ones sound MUCH, MUCH better, and cleaner.

Scott's setup sounds excellent on his 4.7....But you have 2 less cylinders. Even though the engines are very similiar, it's not the same thing. One will sound awesome on a V8, may sound awful on a V6, even if said 6 is based on that V8.

EDIT: I just saw that you were looking to just Y the SRT exhaust in...if you're going to go through the trouble of installing all this, cut the merge off , get an X or H pipe welded in and run the SRT system as true duals...

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

Tim, just do like everyone says, just to get it done. Go to a shop, all they need to do is weld in the Y and make rear hangers and done. Thats it. Go to Lou's custom exhaust, they wont charge much. Please, do it to save your time and aggravation and do it so we can all hear it already.

Not sure what you mean about using an X or H pipe, since I only have one pipe coming off the cat. Right now I have a single pipe system, obviously, and have the 16632 magnaflow catback on it. My decision is if I want to come off after the magnaflow muffler then install a Y pipe back to the two srt resinators and dual tips, or to delete the muffler with a single pipe going to a Y pipe back to the two srt resinators and dual tips. I have a pic of what I have to install above in my first post.

And dont worry, it will be done soon enough.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

BUT...I should say you can try it and just remove the Mag if it doesnt suit you....

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

Im going with deleting the muffler. My inspection sticker is up at the end of the month anyways, so im just going to get it inspected now then put the whole thing on. Paranoid I know, but the last time I went the guy wouldnt pass me because I have a thick black plastic trim around my rear licence plate. Swear to god, he said it was covering the little saying on the bottom and here in MA the same plate numbers are being reproduced and they have different sayings along the bottom. But now I got a Red Sox licence plate, but when I just went down to have him tap out a sway bar bolt I stripped when doing my springs he brought it up again, even with these plates on it. Im not going back to him but I just want it out of the way anyways.
