Question Stock RT Exhaust, Just Remove Resonators

Iíve had my new Charger RT with RT package for 2 weeks now , and would like to start modifying it. I would like to start with making it sound like it runs. I really donít want to spend allot of money on a new exhaust. Have read that some of you are putting on new exhaust systems, and removed the Resonators.

Can I just remove the Resonators? Will this De-tune the stock exhaust, or will it perform the same, just with a little more growl?

You should get more growl. There are a lot of clips on YouTube of those that have already done so.

people on here call it the brylcreem exhaust. what most people do is take out the HUGE suitecase muffler (the big fat one in the middle of the car) and leave the resonators (two littler ones out by the tips), but some people remove the resonators and tips all together and throw some huge tips in there. do some research on here and u can find more info than ever.

sounds like u might be intered in blastin bobs kit...

Since I'm new to this site stop me if I'm wrong but when I looked under my 07 Charger R/T w/ R&T package the muffler or mufflers look to be separate not the suitcase muffler you guys are referring too

I took my resonators off a while ago. You do get a real growl; someone once called it "old school thunder".

There's also a heavier exhaust note inside, esp at higher speeds which bothers some people, but I like it. It's the cheapest way to get louder, bar none.

The two big things at the back right behind the exhaust tips are what we call the resonators, they keep the exhaust from droning when the MDS is active. Further up just in front of the rear axle is a big suitcase muffler that 2 inlets and 2 outlets, so effectively these cars have 4 mufflers.

Here is a picture of the underside of an R/T charger:

Do the Resonators unbolt, or do they have to be cut off?

I'm also in Orange County, CA. and I am running what is commonly called the "Tuna Boat" mod. This is cutting off the resonators and adding tips or re-welding in the original tips.

If you want to hear it in person, we could meet up somewhere sometime. No big problem if your interested.

You will get some drone inside with this setup, but overall it isn't really bad IMO.

It is the easiest way to get the growl out of the hemi. My muffler guy in Costa Mesa also told me the stock suitcase is basically a straight through design and unless I really wanted to spend the dough that it would be close to a cat-back design in regards to performance.
