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

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?
