well guys and gals I decided to make the jump and continue to upgrade my exhaust system. I currently have just a mid-muffler delete and now I decided to buy the Magnaflow resonator kit from blastinbobs website. I also have my MDS turned off so I guess we'll see how this experiment goes. The reason for this is because the car had a nice growl to it on the cold start and after it warmed up it turned quiet again until I got on it. So hopefully the Magnaflow resonators (cherry bomb design) add more sound but is tolerable. If anyone wants I can record some sound clips of before and after the resonators are installed

Yes please id love to hear the before and after :grin2:

How do these resonators install? Do you cut the stock and weld in the Magnaflows? Cuz i also did a mid-muffler delete and looking into something a bit more aggressive.

from my understanding you cut the stock resonators out and these take their place. Here is the link to the resonators to give you a better idea

Mine is the Magnaflow (loudest ones they offer)

Any performance info on this setup, would a mid muffler delete + Magnaflow resonators cause any lose/gains?

Apart from that, woow looks like she gon be loud :laugh2:

I like to believe that the mid-muffler delete + Magnaflow resonators would increase the performance. Mainly because even though the stock exhaust system is a true dual exhaust setup it still chokes the car. The mufflers are big but the resonators are just as big. I read an article once where someone bought a 2011+ R/T and did a CAI, tune, straight pipe setup (even removed the catalytic converter) and installed a high stall converter to compensate for some of the loss in back pressure and he was able to gain around 25ish HP and torque on the dyno. What I am trying to say is the stock exhaust system is very restrictive and as long as you don't remove the catalytic converters (which is illegal in all 50 states) than you shouldn't suffer from any significant loss in back pressure. I am hoping to see a bit more power and mayble an extra MPG.

Thanks for the info ! Now I'm definitely interested in this setup, cant wait to hear your results once you get them installed :bigthumb:

well it is finally done! I got the resonators put on and it is LOUD! It does have some mild drone to it but I actually love it! To me the drone just gives it more sound. Here is the link to the youtube video for whoever wants to hear it =) Let me know what you think.

It sounds great! I just put magnaflows on my car this weekend.

Cams have difficulty with exhaust audio.
yea the tone is so deep that it doesn't register very well.

Everyone needs to check out my video and tell me how bad ass my Charger is! When I pull up next to the Camero's and Mustangs their owners just stare in awe! I love this car! Mopar or no car!!!!!! :driving::rocker:

I will say out of all the factory exhaust setups I like the new 5.0 Mustangs the best, they sound great. With that said, I had a friend do some drive byes in mine at wot, and I was a little disappointed. I was hoping to wait and do a full system, but I just can't take it. I may have to just through some walkers on it or something to make it sound like the Hemi it is.

I didn't like it quiet...I really tried to do the best I can at getting a high quality sound recording but it costs several hundred dollars to get a great sound mic that can pick up on the extremely deep tone that the exhaust is putting out. I've had some friends ask me if I was around them and when I say yea and ask if they saw me they just reply back no, but we did hear you lol.

Also in my opinion the only way you're really going to benefit from a cat-back exhaust on the R/T is if you get a bigger pipe diameter. I've look at several cat-backs and the bends and curves really don't change very much if at all from the factory exhaust setup. I've seen some exhaust (cough Borla cough) that only tune their mufflers for the sound, remove their resonators, and use a more expensive metal...Not really worth $1300+ when you can get the same quality for more than half of the price. Also if you do get a cat-back with bigger piping I would highly recommend you get a high stall converter to make up on the loss of back pressure and low end torque loss.

I have to respectfully disagree with the whole backpressure thing. Opening up the exhaust lets the car breath better. This basically leans out the system because with out the restriction more air flows through quicker causing the lean condition. This alone will get you more hp, however the car will run hotter, even dangerously hotter if to lean. The real gains come when you tune it and add fuel back in to the mixture, richening it up, and causing a bigger bang in the combustion chamber.
