    my car is stock but lots of guys like the 305 Nittos as long as you put in a one piece drive shaft. They won't last long but will hook up.
    Couple guys I know have good luck with the juice, can't help you there but it works.


    I did not get much power from the full Zoomers system on my 392 it would have needed a custom tune and a better cold air intake to complete the system

    my wife and I just liked the sound of the Zoomers system loud and no drone

    we ran the old car and new Cat side by side on trade in day and the Hellcat was louder at idle, you had to rev the engine to make the 392 louder.

    My pulley experience is limited to my Dodge Shelby SP360 and Shelby Gt500
    both got smaller pulleys and tunes. Seems to me you lose a bit of bottom end with a smaller blower pulley cause it takes more hp to turn the blower, but all hell breaks lose at mid and top end.

    I may be in the minority, but I am thrilled with the factory exhaust. I always wanted an exhaust that was nice and loud when I romp on it, but mellow enough not to piss off my neighbors, or catch the unwanted attention of local law enforcement simply by driving by normally. Dodge did a great job of doing this. I only wish that we had the option to hold open the baffles at-will so we don't feel the need to ride around in Track Mode all the time. Track Mode is far too rough on my neck (suspension too stiff for the bad roads in my area), but it allows for the exhaust to be louder when you're driving normally.

    I had electric cutouts on one of my older SRT8's and while that was great, you never really wanted to close them, and sometimes when you did, they didn't seal properly because road grime and crap gets in there, preventing them from closing 100% of the time.

    If I got a louder aftermarket exhaust, I'd be happy while I was driving, but not while warming up the car in my garage, or put-putting around town. Plus it might drown out the sound of the supercharger whine that I love to listen to.

    I definitely believe the exhaust note could stand to be a little deeper and slightly louder. The active exhaust valves give you the impression that the exhaust is plenty loud, but once they close, it is , IMO, just slightly aggressive (unless you get into it).

    I am waiting for an aftermarket axle-back system (I'd just as soon not mess with those exhaust valves and actuators).

    IMO, Dodge/SRT designed a near perfect exhaust system for the Hellcats. Great around town or cruising the interstate with zero drone. Romp on it, and you would think Dale Jr. just started the 88 car. See the video in rayzazoo's sig line.

    I personally think the factory exhaust is perfect! For my taste there's absolutely no need to alter the stock system.

    We have two kits for the Challenger and Charger Hellcat. One has an X pipe only, with J pipes, and is our most aggressive kit.

    The other has our 14" Mach muffler in the center (has an X pipe inside of it) and the J pipes in the rear, and will add about 15% more volume and make it 15% deeper than stock. Both kits are no drone.

    Both kits make a small amount of power if you decide not to tune it. With tuning, they will make even more. They reuse the actuators and keep them functional.

    If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 516-655-9002.
