Straight Pipes
Anyone running straight pipes on their HEMI? I've heard some talk about backpressure and it not being good to run straights on a car. Any thoughts on this?

I deleted the resonator and put on a flowmaster. Sounds like a monster. I recommend just doing that

I've been running no muffler after the cats. No problems. Backs pressure is for old vehicles ... new ones have computers to compensate for it

jager- How does it sound?

I have therifle 4.7 sounds mean as ****! I started it up in the driveway today as a guy in a new tundra was driving by and he instantly was staring.

Plus you gain 1 mpg haha

I hope the 5.7 sounds just as good!!

I want to straight pipe my 2012 Grand Cherokee 5.7 Hemi. Can someone who has done it before post pictures of how they did it and possibly a video to see how it sounds?

I'd be worried about drone more than anything!

I'd like to put some cutouts/dumps to use every now and then. Anyone done this?

Here's a YouTube clip of the 5.7L HEMI straight pipe. Not mine lol
