Default Not sure about your pipe size?

2 1/4" exhaust pipes, and headers do help and so will x pipe when i put it on after i install all the lowering stuff.

Let me rephrase this. Are headers worth it if I am going forced induction? I won't need the extra power, and the exhaust will be turbulence reduced when I am done.

Default headers on ram

Its a must, even more so with a supercharger or turbo. You dont want any restrictions. These stock headers will hold you back from greatness!!!!

I assume you left in your stock tail pipes and resonators.

Thanks for your feedback as I am looking into replacing the stock muffler on my 2011 R/T RAM. Also looking at the Hooker

Am I missing something? Some threads say that the exhaust size is 3"-2.5".
And others say that its 3"-2.25". Is it different on the R/T? Hate to order the wrong one...
