Hi Guys,

I couple of days ago I had my local muffler shop remove the muffler in my 05' RC and installed 2 straight pipes in it's place. I left the rear small resonator muffler. I am very, very pleased w/ the sound.

It is louder without being abnoxious. It does not have any highway drone. In fact, in 6th gear it's almost like stock. When you get on it, it now sounds like a proper Viper engine. When you get off of it, it cackles 3-4 times and then makes a lovely deep decelleration growl.

With the stock exhaust manifolds and cats (4), I would highly recommend this mod if you want a much better sounding truck. Another benefit is that it only cost $50.00 and an hour to have done.

Try it, I promise you'll like it!!!

My '04 didn't have a resonator BUT my '05 has one (for now). Magnaflow replacing the stock exhaust as soon as I can take it over to the exhaust shop. It's raining today so it won't happen. DC did the same to the '03 Hemi then put one on the '04 for some reason? :p

Question about Exhaust Alternative

Quick question for JR183 - when you replaced the mufflers with straight pipes, did you have a crossover or an H pipe installed ?

J.R. THanks for the info regarding Brighton Muffler. I will give them a call. By the way, can you recommend a shop that does excellent work with window tinting here in the Denver area? I am new to the area, and don't know anyone who can recommend yet.

No cross over pipe

J.R. Thanks for the info. I'll bet it sounded awesome. I just received delivery of a black 05 with a regular cab & 4.56 rear end.

I am at latitude 20 and locals know, the cost to ship items here, many times exceeds the cost of the product. Just looking for a few ways to save a buck. No smog testing here and the police don't seem to enforce the sound laws (city/county would not fund DB meters for them, (all the motorcycle's seem to run straight pipes - they set off all the car alarms when the run through my neighborhood). By leaving the (2005) resinator in place I would still have some kind of cross over even though it is a long way from the heads. Again J.R. Mahalo
