You got me very excited to buy this exhaust setup very soon. BTW that woosh when shifting is that the CAI? Or something elseI put flowmasters on my 2016 sxt and they weren’t terrible but I definitely recommend Borla over ANYTHING for the v6 challenger. Yes borla is pricey but there is no comparison to flowmaster. There’s two kits that’s borla sells. Here’s a link to what my challenger sounds like with their ATAK setup.
That's just the natural sound i got after installing the borla setupYou got me very excited to buy this exhaust setup very soon. BTW that woosh when shifting is that the CAI? Or something else
I couldn't agree more with all that you said. Sounds like a V8 at idle but ONLY idle. Just not too much you can do with the 3.6l because the headers are cast to the block. I do have to say, getting the borla did put a massive smile on my face and was my favorite mod. I had flowmasters before and had a large amount of drone. Borla is the best choice for the V6 challenger.Your Challenger requires 2 separate mufflers.
I agree with The Fritz, but there is a catch to that.
Let me save you the headache of the endless search for the muscle car sound with a V6.
I have a 2019 SXT and after a year of searching it comes down to 3 things.
1. The V6 Challenger can sound like a V8 Muscle Car. HOWEVER, ONLY at idle.
The moment you give it gas, it will sound like a European Sports car, not an American Muscle car.
So if you want an American Muscle car sound throughout RPM's, get an R/T before you put too many miles on your SXT.
2. So if you want it to sound like a V8 at idle, but a European sport car sound when you gas it, then don't waste your money and time on countless mods to your exhaust. Just get a Borla ATAK or Borla S-Type (best for daily driver). Yes it cost a lot, but that is the best sound with no drama after installation.
3. If you are okay with the European sport car sound at idle and when you gas it, the best option I think is Different Trend Flow II Stainless Steel Oval grey Exhausts (2.25 offset, 18 in length). You would delete both the resonators too. Takes about 200-300 mile for the sound to really kick in.
Don't waste your time on Flow Masters, they have a bad tin metal Honda sound when you gas it and there is drone in the cabin.
The 2 choices I listed above don't have any drone and doesn't have that tin can sound when you gas it.
Solo Performance Exhaust is my 2nd favorite next to Borla when it comes to sound.I like my Solo exhaust a lot. You see a lot of cold start videos just because that's when you'll get the most sound when stopped. It sounds best at WOT, but what it sounds like just driving is important too. My Solo from a stop sounds very similar inside as the above (even with a lousy iPad video)
I think that's why Borla charges so much, because of how close it sounds.Well, while I disagree with any V6 exhaust sounding like "American muscle car sound at idle ", and you'd have to pay someone to cobble together the J-Pipes for the other as well, whatever makes an owner happy. I've yet to see any exhaust sound like a V8. I do hear people say that people tell them they thought it was a V8...but it has to be wishful thinking. If someone sold a system that actually made it sound like a V8, I think they'd be rich, lol
If a V6 can be considered a muscle car. I don't think it sounds like a V8. But honestly, I wouldn't much care how a V8 sounds at idle unless it had a lope. It's all about on acceleration, when driving, and of course WOT. I think it sounds good...for the V6. JMHOHowever, are you telling me the sound clip from The Fritz doesn't have an American Muscle Car sound(at idle)...?
