Too quiet? You haven't heard my truck. We couldn't run her on the dyno without everybody within earshot plugging their ears. She's so loud the ground was literally shaking.

Re: using srt manis on 5.7 who did it?

How about flowmaster (2-chamber) or maybe Bassani (I know they make quality product, just can't recall the tone)? If you want really loud, look at chambered exhaust and a next step would be turndowns, but those (reverberation) cn be annoying!

I'm not a fan of borla for the price. I mean, they are OK, just nothing spectacular, imo...Same thing with magnaflow. I have one on my WK (PO put it on) and it's driving me nuts and can't wait to change it!

Re: using srt manis on 5.7 who did it?

You would actually benefit from using the oversized "D" shape of the SRT exhaust manifold inlets on a 5.7L head, for they would keep exhaust gases from re-entering the block due to the small lip.

Having said that, AR put 5.7L manifolds on my headers, but included the 6.1L gaskets...go figure!? Oh well, the OEM gaskets are much better anyway. I was going to go with the stock SRT8 system, but decided to go with AR, since others have had success...

Oh ya...my current Borla exhaust is LOUD! I went with chambered mufflers on the SW system, as opposed to the straight through "S" type muffler option, for they are supposed to be more quiet. If you go with the Borla "S" system and the SRT8 headers it should be plenty loud!

Re: using srt manis on 5.7 who did it?

John_r: thanks for the input. ive seen alot of bassani's stuff, i think i might end up with a turbo tube like i have now just wider with piping to match. probaby dump somewhere before the rear axle.
