So now that our weather has warmed up and I have been driving the challenger again something has changed that I dont remember before she was put to bed last fall. The higher up the engine revs the louder the exhaust gets. IE its normal 3k 4k then 4500k hey some more noise Me Gusta, then 5k WOW like building echoing awesome aggressive scare the neighbors loud, Almost as if there are cut outs. I want it to be that loud 100% of the time. What exhaust do I want lol.

I particularly like this set up. BUt am worried about drone and my warranty.

From the sound sample I processed into a spectral representation, the SLP is going to be loud, is going to drone like a M-F'er, and not just a bassy drone, but a ear-ringing hum that happens an octave higher than numerous other popular exhaust brands I analyzed. Most notably, it's got a lot more "stuff" going on in the upper range sound, beyond just the bass throb. You can see in the video how it actually startled the camera guy with a jolt when the driver rev'd it the 2nd time (I think). ;)

I don't have personal impressions on the setup, but the "RTA-view" suggests to me is that this is the sort of exhaust you get to announce to the hills your v8 bellow with 100% intent and pummel you with sound during your whole trip. ;) Some people want that, but others may find it waaaaaay over the top for what they were seeking. ;)





(My pictures aren't showing up on the screen, are they? :( I'm experiencing this for the first time looking at the site on a different computer.)

EDIT 2: I see what is happening now, and it is pretty ***, I mean "of the nature of effeminate, when one calls for a manly measure"! Basically, you have to have a Google Gmail account cookie in your browser, or it won't work. It should work, because that would be the implied meaning of "can be accessed with anybody with the link", but evidently it is only with other gmail users, which completely self-defeats the purpose of "easy collaboration of documents with online users" if everybody you want to collaborate with needs to also have a gmail account...or maybe they just have a gimped implementation for hotlinking pics for use in forum discussions?

Google BAD, VERY BAD, today! :mad:

EDIT 3: I should have just done it the old-fashioned way from the start, but I had forgotten I could do it this way:

huh. According to SLP I could do the SLP powerflow still get the power increase and moderate noise, but much less drone (how ever much less robust) I want to do long tubes witht he exhaust. I dont want to do anything to crazy but I would love to do the cam, heads, headers, ram air intake through the hood, and exhaust. Then get painted stripes like the 2011. After that the car will be done, until this site finds more ways to spend my money LOL. But I am ready for an exhaust. My last vehicle had a 300 hp v-8 and I had a 50 series flowmaster on it that made it sound AMAZING. I miss that.

The joy of springtime, deciding what changes to make to your car! If you liked the Flowmaster 50 on your previous ride, you might like some of the options available for the Challenger. Besides the bolt-on American Thunder systems, our techs are always happy to help you design a custom system.

My last vehicle had a sweet spot of 2k rpm for drone I just drove in a way to keep my RPMS above 2000 rpm, anyware else and it was wonderful. If I could get one of these and know where its going to drone and where to keep the RPM gauge I would be happy.
