Well, you can hear WOT on my custom set-up in the video below :D

I'm running 2 Magnaflows where the middle "suitcase" used to be and a resonator-replacement 5db Blastin Bob's kit

The Magnaflows:




The black-tipped current Blastin' Bob's kit (in this pic it's about to be installed, with old/dirty just-removed 4db resonated kit next to it):

Your stock Charger muffler has a straight thru 2 1/2" perforated core just like a magnaflow only better because it doesn't lose size through the core like magnaflows do, when they bend that perforated core the tubing collapses on the outer part of the bend shrinking the size in the bend.
To answer your question, a short 14" magnaflow will be a little louder then your stock suitcase.

Are you saying that the Magnaflow mufflers have non-Mandrel bent pipes within them ?

I know the Blastin' Bob's kit out back isn't Mandrel-bent ... I think he started offering that as an option after I got mine ... :)




Sounds awesome Gabe....
Thanks Brian ... :bigthumb:



Eventually, I plan on getting a complete cat-back with a new X-pipe, maybe even high-flow cats, now that they're available for the AWD ...

I'll most likely end up with the JBA cat-back ...

Some JBA sounds:

Correct, if there was a mandrel in the core when it was bent to an "S" shape it would not collapse. I believe that a mandrel would get pretty beat up since magnaflow perforations go from end to end in the core and the stock suitcase has perforations only in the center part of the core.

Borrowed picture of the stock Charger core.
