In this video, you will hear a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 5.7L Hemi V8 with two different Exhaust systems on it.
In the first part, it's the stock Exhaust with a Mopar Cold air Intake and Diablosport Predator tune set to the Perf.91 CAI tune. Keep in mind, this stock Exhaust is already past it's break-in period of ~1500 miles, it was at about 2000 so it was fully broken in.
In the second part of this video you will hear the same car, with the same intake and same Diablosport tune but with the following added:
JBA Short Tube Headers
JBA High Flow Mid-pipes (2.5" diameter)
Magnaflow Custom built Exhaust with NO resonators (this is not one of the kits you buy directly, this was built by the muffler shop I took it to using all Magnaflow pipes and such and cost ~$700)
The new system sounds great. Has a pretty deep throaty rumble to it. There is drone, but It's not terrible, I think in time I will actually get used to it. The system could stand to be louder and have a little less drone, but other than that, it's great. Added a pretty good amount of power as well as you can almost always chirp the tires going into second gear now where as before you could only do it on a lucky occasion.
It has a very clean sound and runs smooth. On the freeway the drone isn't very bad at all, only when you start to accelerate and get it around 3000 RPM.
I'll try to get an interior video soon!
Just wanted to add some more personal input now that we have had the system on for a few weeks.
I mentioned the drone, yes, there is drone, wont deny it. BUT, it's not bad at all. We have gone on a couple 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour cruises and it hasn't bothered us at all. Freeway speeds it's fine, not very bothersome. The only time it really gets to me at all, is a somewhat slow acceleration, the first 2-3 gears can put some decent pressure on your ears. But it's easily avoidable by accelerating slower or faster.
I mentioned that it could be louder. I may have been wrong! This thing is pretty dang loud! In fact, we compared our system to a friends Corsa Extreme system (also a 2010 automatic R/T). Guess what, OURS IS LOUDER THAN THE CORSA EXTREME. At WOT, it's very close, and the Corsa may actually have a bit more sound. BUT, at start-up, idle, and cruising, the Magnaflow IS louder.
Sorry it's taking so long to get an Interior video, I haven't had to many chances to get the car away from the old man long enough to bother grabbing the video camera lol. But it WILL come... Eventually. haha
Any questions, feel free to ask.
