Exhuast Crimp Removed

Just got the notorious exhaust crimp removed from my exhaust. Took plenty of pictures as the exhaust shop I found allows you to stay with the vehicle and check out the work being done. ( RJ's Custom Piping - Raleigh, NC )

Not sure if I will have anything to report on the fix but hopefully it will cut down on the MDS drone and give a little better throttle response as others have said. I get a terrible drone when using ACC with ECO on and set to 80-84 MPH. Exhaust is still stock for now as well.

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

I believe the same crimp is used with the 5.7 engine. It doesn't look like its needed to clear anything, so why is it there?

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

From what I heard it was so you could access some bolt above it...

Yup there is a small bolt above the crimp. It was said the crimp was to provide access to the bolt during the build process...

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

There was a comment on the other site that the SRT engineers tuned the exhuast with the crimp factored in so maybe it can stay... but its out of mine now. I will keep you guys posted on my experiences...

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

Its worth the $50 to get it cut out, in my eyes anyway.

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

The "hum" is quieter to me so far. Will be taking a trip to the mountains starting Saturday so I will really know of any changes after the new year...

Stay Tuned.
