Well boys and girls, the system is all done. As of today I have the X crossover and dual muffler setup on the truck. The side exit system is also done but still a little ways a way. The headers are also done but need to go into production and get coated and all that good stuff. probably two months off.

The system sounds good. deeper, throater, smoother would sum it up. It is a simple bolt on to boot. I'll post pics shortly!

The headers look good too. They are 1 3/4in equal length tubes with a 3into1 and a 2into1 collector then those two into one. Like what else could they do. install is easy. you'll just have to remove the front wheels and bumper moldings. they will slide right in and bolt up the the stock cats.

Bassani hasn't set pricing yet. give then a week or two. I'll keep you posted.

i wouldn't expect much in the way of performance numbers for the exhaust. 10hp if that. the stock system is a straight thru system as it is. the new system is just an crossover and two mufflers with a straight thru flow. that wasn't dynoed.

i'll get numbers on the truck as it stands now then i'll rerun it with the headers on. the problem is a don't have a dyno close and i'm not thrilled about spending 200 bucks for a couple of runs. dynos are cheap out here.

Some exhausts are built for sound and not performance. When you mentioned that the headers bolted to the factory cats, I suspected this was one of those. But, one of the SRT team members identified a free flowing exhaust as a good way to increase performance. I believe most of the restriction is in the cats.

have you looked at the cats? they're pretty big. they appear free flowing. with the rest of the system being well built in terms of performance, i'd assume dodge did not skimp on the cats. plus here in cali you can't touch them anyhow. the exhaust setup is similar to hennessey's, so i'd assume the power gains would be about the same. and like i said earlier i'll do what i can with the dyno testing to see the gains on the whole system.

dont you think maybe that the cats might be like on the hemi, where the has got to be some room for improvment, since it still a production cat for emissions. hennesy's seems to have made gains with just muffs, i bet you are doing better than you think.-dosent bassani have a access to some one with a dyno, they have got to need data for themselves?

We use the mods we have already done on the Viper SRT10 as our measuring stick since it is the same motor. Our long tube header, exhaust and high flow cat system for the Viper SRT10 makes 474 rear wheel hp. So this is the benchmark for where I think our exhaust mods for the Ram SRT10 should be targeted.

Our SRT10 baselined 428 rw hp when it was bone stock and today we got 448 rw hp - primarily from exhaust mods. Next on our R&D list is long tube headers.

Sorry for the thread hijack. Bassani makes very nice parts and I would like to try them out when they become available.

So what happened to this exhuast kit? Do we know anything about it yet?
Cost?
Performance?
Pics?

question. does our truck run 4 cats? is that a second one in line after the first or some kind of resonance chamber?

If anybody is interested in the bassani setup i have the "1st" system sitting in my garage. My truck was the test vehicle for the exhaust and headers. their setup is a x-pipe and dual mufflers. they are a direct replacement for the muffler. It has a more aggressive sound than the magnaflow system. i'm not sure what bassani is selling the system for but i'm sure we could figure something out.

it does have a deeper raspier sound than the magnaflow. when i first switched from the bassani to the magnaflow i regreted doing it because of the sound difference. after a few hundred miles the magnaflow finally woke up! but if you want a stock appearance the bassani is nice.
