MBRP/Solo/Zoomers Questions - RT Specific

I've been reading threads on cat-back exhaust to the point of ad nauseam. I do have a couple of questions in regards to MBRP (S7104*) vs Solo (with j pipe) vs Speedlogix Zoomers. Car in question is a 2012 RT plus, 6 speed manual w/STP. Mods include an Airaid CAI, Charger clean air intake tube and Diablo Trinity 93 OCT canned tune.

1) My understanding is Zoomers are loudest; which exhuast system is quietest, especially in the cabin
2) My understanding is Zoomers are the deepest sounding, followed closely by MBRP. How do the Solo's compare as far as depth of sound.
3) I understand all systems 'can' drone to a degree. Is it a fair assumption to say drone will be comparable with all the systems listed above on my car since it's a 6 speed manual? Will my mods have an effect in this regard?

Thanks. I would like a more sound, depth and performance, but still enjoyable for a weekend trip. I'm really leaning towards the MBRP S7104304, but would like to know more how these systems compare as far as depth, volume, drone...

Thanks!

Mods: Diablo Trinity tuner, Airaid CAI, Charger clean air intake tube, skip-shift eliminator, Moroso catch can, MBRP S7104304

Hey i
had the flowmaster American Thunder and switched to the zoomers in my 12 rt Classic 6 speed.

with the flowmaster i had drone but it was okay on the 6 speed my brother has it now on his 300c and the drone ist very Bad.

the zoomers are almost drone free for me.
And yes when you Start the car it is loud but very deep Sound kind of Sound that you like and Not hate.

I keep posting this, but it's been very helpful to me when choosing an exhaust.

Zoomers vs Solo Performance Mach X-3 vs Corsa Extreme


MBRP is not on the link, but they are akin to Zoomers. Deep throaty muscle car sound. Zoomers is louder, and more commanding. May be a bit much for some. Was loud to me, but now me and my family are used to it. There's zero drone on my exhaust, MBRP is also drone free if you get the cool duals, tuning tubes. Ordered mine from Zoomers directly. Jegs is another great place to get them cheap with free shipping.

I like Solo a lot too, but in the end it was not aggressive enough for me. Too raspy too. YMMV.

Good luck

Any input as to the volume difference between the these three? Is one more quiet than the others?

I had both Zoomers and MBRP on my '09 R/T a few years ago and after time, the MBRP was VERY loud inside and the drone was much worse than the Zoomers. I was surprised that the Zoomers sounded as good as it did inside and out and that would be my suggestion to you of those two. I have no information on Solo.

Zoomers is the loudest, Solo would be the quietest.

Does MBRP lead on a performance perspective?

Running the Solo system on my 2011 R/T with auto trans. Interior sound level at highway speeds is slightly louder than the stock system when you are NOT using the MDS mode. When the MDS kicks in, it is a little louder inside.

For the 6 speed users I can only guess the interior volume would be slightly louder than the stock system when cruzing on the highway. WOT is altogether different with the Solo system which would apply to the MBRP & Zoomers systems as well.


There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Mental Illness." Some of us may have crossed the line.

Mods:
Functional hood scoop, DRL's enabled, Charger intake tube, Solo Mach X cat-back exhaust, Diablo InTune, SX catch can, Sequential taillights, Pistol Grip shifter, Custom smoothed intake manifold, Custom built covers for coolant tank, fuse box, valve covers, and ABS.
