Anybody try a Borla Atak for the SRT on a 5.7?
 
This may sound crazy but has anybody tried to see if the Borla SRT8 axle back system, either the S or the Atak, will work on the 2011-2013 5.7 hemi? I know they make a cat back one for the 5.7, but that is not what I am looking for. Or maybe a picture of the under side of each srt and 5.7 to see if they look remotely similar with room, hangers, and what not.

Thanks in advance!

It would be nice to see if the Borla Atak works.

Displacement is significantly different so there is a good chance the "designed" tone will not be produced...

That being said, price and looks are definitely positives. Does it fit is the question...

Does the 5.7L match the SRT8s 2.75" exhaust piping? Will the 5" tips fit in the openings on the 5.7? I would guess the rest would work, it's only two hangers per side holding the Borla up (using the same factory points).

Can't seem to find out what size piping ours is, I believe it is 2 1/2" and I think the SRT is 2 3/4", so it should be close enough to clamp down and work just fine. I think they designed the SRT system, after they designed the full cat back for the 5.7 and determined this is the only way to eliminate the drone, but don't want to admit it because the full system for the 5.7 is twice as expensive, and doesn't work as well. I am thinking about going for it!

Bit the bullet and ordered a Borla S axle back, and of course it's back ordered! But I will have it powder coated black before I install it anyway, so it could be months before I get to try this out.

Tussle, I'll be following. This system looks AWESOME, and is much closer to being affordable. Can't wait to hear this. Those tips are huge,

I definitely love the purchase! That being said, I personally would do a test fit/install first to make sure it fits and I love the sound before I powder-coat it and lose "returnability".

I think the only issue I will have will be the 5.7 piping is 2 1/4 and the srt is 2 3/4. I think that will be easily fixed, and, I don't see any issue or reason why this shouldn't fit, work, and install just fine. Might not sound exactly like an SRT, but it should sound decent, or at least deeper and throatier. I will make this work!

Is there enough room in our bumper cutouts to fit the 5" tips??

Actually there is plenty. I tried one yesterday and it fits. Probably wouldn't want to go any bigger personally, but the 5" tips on the Borla should be just right.

What we now need are some sweet pictures of our undersides as well to compare.
