    11595EFB-1563-470D-AC59-4ED63DB1584F.png I just ordered a set of these for my 2010 5.7 RT. The previous owner had installed the cold air intake, 85mm throttle body, Edlebrock intake all with long tube headers. They left the remaining exhaust system stock. I feel by getting rid of the resonators it should help the engine breath better.....now just need to wait for shipping...

    I got no increase in gas milage fro that exact kit but the sound is perfect on my 10-SRT manual.

    If you so a search on Blastin Bob here,you should be able to find the you-tube of mine.

    When you do it, listen to it before,
    Then start it up with the resonators OFF
    The after you put the kit on.

    It is a simple 30-45 min process.

    I thought it was to quiet, until I rolled down the windows one day as I left work.

    I think when you have one of these, gas mileage really isn’t top priority.....sound and power is key :happy107:

    IMHO of course...I’ll post my findings after its done.

    Nice, she’s got a growl to it. Did you notice the droning got louder inside?

    Yes there is, if you lug the engine down,
    So just down shift, and hit the gas :driver:

    I installed the pipes last night. Did a cold start last night when I finished up. Sounds great, nice growl. I haven’t taken her for a spin yet to see what the interior sound is like....raining cats and dogs tonight. I guess I’ll get out to play this weekend.

    How does it perform with the Edelbrock Intake? I wanted to do this on my 2016 R/T but have heard mixed reviews about it being too much for the stock 5.7 liter.

    I’ll let you know after this weekend, I haven’t had a chance to test drive her since I put the pipes on.
