Best r/t cat back exhaust?

Hey guys, I've been researching all the exhausts the challenger has to offer and was looking for something in the $900-$1,100 range, I've heard Zoomers is pretty good but after hearing the borla ATAK I was sold. But before I try to make a move I want to hear some opinions on some R/T challenger exhausts.

I'm really enjoying the Solo Mach X on my R/T 6 speed. The cost was $895 shipped and the install was clean and simple! However, the clamps that are sent with the pipes are a bit odd. Several people, including me, have had "rattles" at the connection clamps. I welded mine in place, fixed it, and another guy used the more sturdy clamps from the original exhaust. Both ways fixed the rattle... The sound is great! Check it out!

Hellyeah, thanks for replying, I didn't think I would get a response. But yeah I did look them up and it's definitely what I'm looking for. Did you get the exhaust where it had either the rectangle or quad tips or did you have to weld your tips back on?

The Solo tips are interchangable (Quad round or Quad square), or an adapter to run the stock tips. No welding required for any of the system. Sound quality is one of the best available at any cost.

I have a Flowmaster American Thunder system on mine and I absolutely love it. It seems to have the perfect back pressure the Hemi needs to breathe just perfectly. Not to mention that signature flowmaster rumble is a nice bonus. Also, there is almost no drone at all, only while accelerating. Got my set on eBay brand new for 500.00 and they fit like a dream making installation quick and painless.

I have the corsa xtreme on mine. Perfect fit when installed. However if I had it to do over I would probably go with the Flowmaster Super 44s. I have a friend that has them on his R/T Classic. Very good sound for alot less money

"almost no drone at all, ONLY while accelerating"? LOL
Zoomers all the way. No drone and great muscle car sound.

I'd love to see a performance system with NO drone at all. It's just not possible. Personally, I enjoy hearing my exhaust.

We live in a new world where Chrysler engineers really do their work thoroughly,exactly, and the aftermarket cannot cost effectively improve major systems.

Case in point:

-most CAI's are a real waste of money for a couple of HP AFTER the computer adjusts. Most big HP dyno ratings are one or two runs BEFORE the computer adjusts.

-ditto for exhaust. SRT engineers have stated that stock exhaust for 6 speeds are basically straight through. Aftermarket exhausts mostly feature irritating drone, minimal HP gains after the computer adjusts, and impressive wallet emptying prowness.

-likely supercharging/turbocharging will stress internals beyond design strength. One must remember that these HEMI's are not over engineered rendering stresses beyond design limits when compressing the fuel charge.

Unlimited dollars can solve anything, and sometimes not.

Relax. Enjoy.

I come to these inglorious conclusions after spending hours and hours reading all these websites and the experiences recorded there over the past 4 years.

Now, handling and braking are completely different matters......
