Default srt4 exhaust on...whew...lol

I finished installing the srt4 exhaust I bought off of bigtommy83, and it bolted right up and sounds great!

the cruiser seems to have way more power and the noise is nowhere near as loud as i thought it would be, especially since the cruiser has no resonators on the intermediate pipe, while the srt4 has 2.

now i need to get a stage 1...lol

Way more power? It's a 2 1/4" exhaust, the same as a stock GT, with no muffler and a couple of resonators. I'll bet it sounds nice. I liked the sound my SRT-4 made with the stock exhaust. But, way more power? [:I]

Not "has more power"

"Seems to have"

A louder exhaust, like most other mods, requires recalibrating your Butt-Dyno(tm).

If his experience is similar to ours was when replacing the stock GT muffler with a straight-through Supertrapp, it did spool a bit quicker.
That can fool a loosely calibrated butt dyno into thinking there is more power, when it's really the same power available over a wider RPM range.....

That could be true, less back pressure spooling is better which gives you the same power a little quicker. A 2 1/2" catback exhaust really helps spooling and if you want the best spooling go with a 3" o2 housing, 3" dp w/hiflow cat and a 2 1/2" catback exhaust. Really made a difference on my SRT-4. Some say a full 3" turboback exhaust is better but the dyno has shown no difference in hp with the system I have. I still think the new cool sound has something to do with it. When I had a '01 PT I installed an intake and with the new cool sound I thought the PT was faster. When the homemade intake broke and I went back to the OEM airbox I noticed the only difference there had been was the sound. It's all good though. He has a new cool sounding exhaust with pops and burgles that sounds great.

All I can tell you all for sure is that it sounds great! and honestly, it seems to have more get up and go... at least to me. I may install a resonator, since i believe the srt4 has 2, and the dreamer has none, so basically i am running a cat and pipes..

As long as you are happy that is all that matters. The SRT-4 does have 2 resonators. I think they are 12". On the Mopar exhaust for the SRT-4 there is one big one, 24", I think. With no resonator(s) it must be pretty loud.

I thought I would post a picture for you all to see.



We deliberately hung it low because of the xenon rear bumper that is in my garage awaiting paint.

nowhere near as loud as I thought, but still thinking about a resonator...
