Mid Muffler Delete
 
Anybody have any experience with mid muffler delete modifications in Texas? Are they illegal? Do you have any issues passing inspection? I'm looking for an inexpensive way to improve the sound on my 2019 R/T and a mid muff delete is an option I'm considering. Thanks for any input

Why not do the dynomax mini race bullets instead? Sounds better imo. But if it’s loud you’re going for do the delete. Not sure about laws in Texas, but doubt it’s illegal. Cats are a different thing.

I had never heard of those before just looking them up. I want some loudness but I don't want it to be ridiculously loud. Looks like the bullets will probably do that. Any idea which model bullets I would need for a 2019 R/T?

Mini race bullets = glasspacks - no tuning whatsoever.

That info is for the Safety Inspection, not the Emissions Inspection

I have the Mini Race Bullets and they sound great IMO. Haven't done mid muff. delete but have read reviews where folks say that route is too raspy sounding.

I did a quick video on the mid-muffler delete a few weeks ago. It's actually not quite as loud as you might think...but it does sound pretty nice.

Your car is a 2010, his is a 2019. That's not even remotely the same thing.
