I hope its an optical illusion or a pre-production item. From the picture it looks like the pipe is about 1.5 inch diameter expanded into a 4 inch flange...terrible!

Not sure I am a fan of the SRT logo on the hitch panel cover either....:confused: Little bit ghetto fab....

Yeah the exhaust trumpets look like they hide some small diameter pipes

What is the big deal about the diameter size of the exhaust pipes if the vehicle produces 465HP and performs as it should?? Exhaust size is designed as part of the overall performance of the system. Increasing its diameter does not necessarily mean better performance.

My guess is that they have different exhaust so that we cant find out what it really sounds like(other then the short youtube vid in a garage). they have really done a good job on keeping this truck undercover for the last few months(very frustrating for us enthusiasts). this would also change the performance a bit so the numbers would not be accurate if someone decided to Play around in it!

Yup...Its true. Trumpet tips. You can see another angle here:
If you look at the right tip, you can see the floor of the show floor right to the left.
So that's why they are black. So it hides the drop down in diameter size.

I know a good Tip Manufacturer (wink wink) LOL...
