Congrats, You will love the sound.
I've had mine for two years now, and still happy with it.

I've had mine in few months now and it was pretty good, nice deep tone but not as loud as I expected. Recently, like 3 days or so ago I put in my magnaflow Y-pipe and mandrel bent 409 2.5 inch stainless tubing in front of it and deleted the resonators and had everything welded in including my dod18 and it is awesome now, FREAKIN LOVE it!!!!
I would seriously recommend doing the Y in yours man, that restriction is just something that has to go and that with the combination of No resonators make the 18 sound soooo much better...and NO drone either,,
Now I'm just waiting on the JBA shorty titanium headers to get off dam back order, Can't wait to put these on, it's going to be even better I'm guessing...
Good luck man!!:smileup:

That's music to my ears. I use mine as a daily driver, with occasional family road trips. Didn't want anything too loud, but I'd like to hear that HEMI when I put my foot in it.

Sport10, I'll see about the Y-pipe once I've had it for a while. Thanks for the info though. :smileup:

The factory 2.5 inch piping running from your cats to your stock y pipe and the y pipe itself are both very restrictive, they are crimped and have a mangled design,replacing this with a magnaflow y-pipe and new piping will free up your exhaust and it will flow much better,you will gain a few ponies, have better flow and possibly see an increase in mpg's, I saw a slight gain in my mpg's..Not to mention exhaust sound was greatly improved but I did do away with my resonators as well so this may weigh in on that...
There is endless threads about the stock crap ypipe, you could do a Google search and learn a lot like I did. I will try and post some links for ya soon cause I'm replying to you now from my phone and I can't copy and paste..

Thanks Sports10,
Thats a great thread you posted, I never knew the Y-pipe was so crappy.
I'm calling my exaust guy tomarrow to check installation prices.
Where did you get yours, good price??
Thanks

I got My Y pipe at auto anything for 27 beaners with free shipping, since then they have raised there price to almost 33 bucks so I would shop it around if You wanna save a few bucks. Just Google the part number #10778 and you should have good luck, amazon is usually a good place. The inlet size is 2.5 and the double outlet is 3.0..
I also got My replacement piping through mandrel solutions.com . Our exhaust systems are stainless steal already and exhaust shops around here just deal with aluminum crap and they just have regular pipe benders ....so I went to mandrel's website and got 409 stainless steel mandrel bent piping to replace the stock crimp parts. I got two 2.5 inch 45 degree pipes and one 2.5 inch 90 degree pipe. Then I brought it to my exhaust guy and he cut where he needed to and made it happen for 70 bucks, which was very cheap but he is a friend . Hole thing cost me a little less then 170.00 but if You get it done for less then 250 including all parts you'll still be doing good. Y pipe cost me 27,piping through mandrel cost me 71 shipped, and labor 70...
Good luck and let me know if I can further assist..
Eric B.....
