Well our turbos aren't too efficient above 5500rpms anyways but you have absolutely the worse muffler you could put on a turbo. Sorry... Stay away from chambered mufflers. Its good to run a straight through design muffler like a borla or even better, run a straight pipe with some resonators and no muffler, better flow, and you can quiet it down some, it'll sound more like an srt-4.

The BTG exhaust is TRUE flow-thru - you can look thru each section. It has 3 resonators and sounds delightfully deep and I love the "burble" when you back off the gas.....
If you go for duals, they split the exhaust evenly with a "Y" pipe.[?]
