As the title states, I have a 2019 Charger 392 and I recently installed Vibrant 1142 Ultra Quiet resonators in place of the factory mid-mounted mufflers as well as MFER-1 active exhaust deletes. The rest of the exhaust is completely stock. Car only has 3000 miles on it currently.

I went with the Vibrant 1142 because i've used them in the past on other projects and they eliminate rasp and drone. On the charger they gave it a much deeper tone that is mellow when cruising, but for my taste the loudness at WOT is intoxicating.

I had the mid muffler delete for all of 2 days and i hated it, too much rasp and just wasn't what i want my car sounding like. The Vibrant 1142 are oval straight thru design with perforated core and 304SS.

Since I couldn't find anyone on the interwebs with a challenger or charger that used the 1142, I decided to use them and the videos don't do them justice. They are a fantastic alternative to a $1000 catback system as well as the commonly used bottle reso Vibrant 1794.

Overall, for around $170 a pair shipped, this gamble paid off. Oh and they get better once they break in.

Videos were done with Gopro Hero 5 using external microphone: Olympus ME-51S and wind sock.

Also, I have P4D Differential Brace installed shown below, this was one of my first mods to help with preventing wheel hop.

I ordered a pair of these today. The Mini Bullets for mids have got to go. I will keep the bullets I have installed as resonators for now. But I really like the deeper tone you have.

Is this the standard P4D diff or the Billet? Bought MFER-1 kit to give it a shot and thinking about the Vibrant Ultra 3" for my 2020. Did you do the install yourself? (Price range if able on install?)

I installed the P45 Diff brace myself, the Vibrant ultra quiet are around $80-90 a piece and it cost me around $100 to have them welded in place. Each exhaust shop will be different though.

Its the standard brace from P4D. Had it for over a year now without any issues.

Here are some more photos of the Vibrant 1142 Ultra quiet under the vehicle. Also some up close photos of the MFER1 installed. Over a year having both without any issues.

Also, I purchased the Carven 3" X pipe, with a pair of Torca Sleeved 3" butt joint exhaust clamps. The Carven X pipe is stainless steel tig welded with a 8" crossover in the center. Very nice quality, and I'll be having it installed in place of the factory X pipe. Not sure it will effect power much, but should clean up the sound some. Plus its just a more efficient design than stock imo, and its 3" so it will connect to my stainless mid pipes easily.

TORCA sleeved butt joint/slip fit clamps 3" (TCS-300) Will use these for ease of install, a pair at the front attached to the Stainless Works 3" midpipes, and then some on the rear. This way it will be removable.
