SRT exhaust on an R/T
Who has done this or can point me to a thread/website where this has been done? I understand the only actual difference from mid-pipes back is the fact that the R/T is 2.5" whereas the SRT is 3". If I were to go catless mid and get an SRT 3" system and maybe stock SRT manifolds would I see a drastic loss in torque? I understand the concept and theory of bigger pipes=less backpressure=loss of torque. But what is this in reality on our platforms?
I ask because I see some SRT exhaust systems coming available at decent prices and wonder what a .5" difference will make in the exhaust systems.
Also, if I'm looking to be some type of forced induction in the future should I waste the install money on stock SRT manifold or save my money for LTH? I will be running catless regardless. With respect to going catless what do I need to do there about the o2 sensors, CEL, and throwing codes?
This is kind of all over the place but there is alot of factos that go into something like an exhaust system. I want sound and performance but I also don't want to have to go into it all again when I go FI. I like to spend my money once if able.
Thank you all.
