Looking to do something with my exhaust. Have a buddy with a 2016 Scat Pack and he just did the mid muffler delete. Sounds good in my opinion. Anyone know or have done it to their 13 R/T? How does it sound?
Plenty of folks like the mid-muffler delete. I didn't do it on my '14 R/T Blacktop, I modified the resonators instead for a little more sound.
I live in the Northeast, so I don't like the idea of cutting off stainless steel exhaust parts and replacing them with carbon steel. I did actually buy a couple of lengths of T409 stainless pipe to do it, but in the end I didn't want the change in exhaust velocity to shift the powerband any...these cars need all the low-end grunt they can get.
If there is any question, yes, it's absurdly loud when I floor it with my 17 5.7L R/T Daytona. Be ready for that! I'd have to say it's too loud if you like to drive fast around town, and would probably be a better choice for someone who lived further out. Having said that, for light-moderate driving, I like the sound. Also, it's great fun watching the car from a distance and waiting for a random woman to walk behind the car and hitting the remote start!
Having said all that, If I had to do it all over again I would probably get some other light muffler put in the mid-mufflers' place. The shop owner offered a setup that would do this, but the price difference was rough; $150 for the delete, $450 for replacements. I went with the cheap option.
