Thanks for the input, I'd like to be able to hear the Corsa xtremes myself along with those zoomers so I can decide on which way to go.

Go with Zoomers...heard them in person this past weekend and LOVED them...fairly loud...great classic Hemi sound...little to NO drone...great system. A bit pricey but so is the Corsa set up. Corsa has a great sound to it...a LOT like the stock sound just 10% louder. Too quiet for a muscle car though in my opinion. Zoomers...good stuff!

Hmmm looked on Flowmaster site and didnt see one for 08 but I think 08-09 were the same exhaust wise...Just to be safe, could always get a good muffler shop to weld up 3" pipe front to back and put some super 40s on there...cost less than the full kit too.

The Corsa Extreme is deceivingly louder than most realize when listening to it from inside the car, I believe this due to there patented sound cancellation technology. It wasn't till I was following behind my car with the wife driving that I realized just how loud this exhaust is even under normal driving and at WOT it's just plain wicked.
My 2 cents



2011 SRT8, Auto, Edelbrock SC 10psi, 604 RWHP, Wiseco custom forged 2618 pistons, K1 forged rods, Moldex custom ground and balanced crank, Kooks LT headers and cats, ATI Super damper 17% OD, Corsa Extreme cat-back, Airaid CAI, Fastman 85mm TB, Walbro 400lph fuel pump, SCT tuner, AutoMeter gauges, T/A hood (functional), Staggered Zenetti Bellagio wheels

Built and tuned at Blue Collar Performance

^^^And we have a winner here. Some people have to literally ride their exhaust system to believe it is making noise. Flowmasters not only reduce performance, they sound terrible and actually get quieter(when listened to outside of the car) at higher RPMs than lower RPMs, just the opposite of Corsa.

The Corsa systems shoot the sound out the back of the car, and I will put money down that it is as loud or louder than any catback out there at WOT.

I will get the extreme catback when I have the $$$ together, there is no other choice for me. For now I just did the Blastin' Bob's resonater delete, the drone is annoying, especially when the pipes are cold, but it's still fun with the 6 speed.

I always love the comments about how some systems don't drone that I have personally heard considerable drone from, either you have no idea what drone is or you should just consider yourself lucky you already lost some of your hearing LOL

'12 Challenger SRT8 Pitch Black 6-speed, stripe delete, all options
-AFR functional SHAKER hood, Hurst/Mopar short throw pistol grip W/Larry's mod, Corsa Extreme, Jet 180 t-stat, HEMI FEVER tune, BT catch can, ceramic tint/clear bra/C-Quartz...you know, some other crap too
13.56@104.38 stock tune/tires DA 7170 - that's 12.33@114.45 corrected!!!

Can't agree more! Had someone take me for a ride in his 300 SRT to "show off" his zoomers, when I asked what about the drone he just shrugged and said you get used to it!

No thanks.. not for me!

But then again, sound quality is subjective, what appeals to one may not appeal to the masses, so "to each there own" I believe is the old saying.

Very true, and I forget to include that disclaimer when I go on rants about exhaust sometimes LOL

Like your car BTW, is that the Mopar T/A hood? How do you like it? Any issues? That's kind of how I am going to do mine, definitely take the 392 badge off the side and put it on the hood, I am finding that I like the factory hood more than I thought though. Beauty of these cars is you can rock it one way, then change it up later, they are so exterior mod-friendly it's just like changing clothes.

Yep, it's a Mopar T/A hood, no issues at all, perfect fit. I agree they are exterior mod friendly, next I'm thinking of going with AAR Cuda stripes in flat black.

The Flowmater sound is that of every pickup in town. IMO.

Interestingly, the guy next door to me told me I needed some Flowmasters on my SRT-8 so it would sound more tough like his Chevy Suburban. No thanks. I'll save up for the Corsa.
