    Hi, I'm new to this forum as a member but a long time lurker. After reading many threads, I concluded that a flowmaster was the best option to get better sound out of my SXT. After installing it myself, the sound has definitely improved, but it is still not quite as loud or aggressive as I want to achieve. I know my car is only a v6 and that limits sound, but are their any other options I have to make my car louder without getting a new muffler?

    Thank you!

    Loud is easy , cut the mufflers/resonators off it will be loud.
    It will also sound horrible.
    There is the problem louder that sounds " good ".
    Good luck.

    Not sure if you ever got an answer. I am in The same situation. My car, like I think all (maybe i am not sure but would like to know) has 3 mufflers. I had the first one closest to the cat replaced with a magnaflow and left the other two down toward the end. It is just a bit louder but not enough louder for what I wanted. The guy at the shop, Midas, said if I replaced that first muffler with a straight pipe and left the other 2 it would be way too loud to pass inspection. I live in New Hampshire and and not sure on that. I want to get the most sound I can out of the car but really cannot afford to do the entire exhaust system right now. I can put some money into it but just wanted to hear some thoughts and opinions.

    To answer your question sorta....I’ve never had a v6 Charger but I did have a 2012 v6 Challenger it had true dual exhaust. That’s two mufflers midway of the car with the resonators out by the bumper. To me it sounds like you have replaced the muffler with the magnaflow leaving the resonators. The resonators are going to keep it from being obnoxiously loud, the magnaflow also is going to have more of a tone to it unlike the flow master just being loud.
    That’s my 10 cents worth. ( inflation )

    Maybe the one vs two mufflers is the difference between the SE and the SXT ( my Challenger )

    Not sure if you solved the issue. If you look under your car you have the extra room to run another pipe on the opposite side to make your exhaust dual. I have the V8 model, i replaced the factory mufflers with flowmaster super 44's and cut the resonators off. Sounds amazing

    I just done the same only with magnaflows. The mf’s in the middle straight pipe the rest of the way out, freaking awesome not noticing any drone yet.
