    Merely searching for alternative exhaust style(s) that have potential/merit, aesthetically and/or functionally. Appreciate your input and certainly your pictures...

    If you're talking about a set of side pipes on a HC Challenger (multiple pipes that is, as opposed to a single pipe, as some have posted), here are the only pics I can find:

    Both of the above side-pipe set ups were no doubt patterned after this:

    Perhaps a better angle of view:

    Yes, I agree and thanks for the additional pictures. It tends to be a very mid-70s to mid-80s style. I've considered experimenting with a complete retro-street-sleeper exterior look for the The Duke, that would include 17 inch wheels with some chrome accent, tall/wide rubber, alternative exhaust placement (this thread), and various other things. Everything is so 20, 22, 24 inch wheel, slammed, graphics, tech, that I thought it refreshing to go the other way...simple, low key, powerfully understated. Still formulating the "plan".

    Yeah, a lot of the more recent stylized appearance mods all start to look the same, so about anything Retro would definitely stand-out. The "old-is-new-again" thing ...

    My main concern with installing side exhaust pipes on the HC is that the rear end already sits pretty low as it is. Taller tires and some sort of rear end lift would lessen the risk of scraping/grinding the pipes on something while going down the road. If you look at the first pic in my post #5 above, you can see the larger rear tires and how that car was lifted, which yields good clearance for the pipes.

    I'd like do a side pipes mod on my Cat at some point - maybe a set of 3 pipes each side to give it an edgier, more aggressive look than just a single pipe.

    That would work nicely. I am a fan of the T/A and AAR 'Cuda stock exhaust, though the hanger is long and not necessarily workable for the Hellcat, but the idea is good. I would consider going through the lower body panel on either side, forward of the rear wheel, to preclude any height from the ground issues. Coming through the body panel is pretty neat, I think, and would sound terrific; single, double or quad tips. BUT...it has to be done WELL, thus $$s for a real sheet metal guy to get it just right...once committed to that, you're stuck-like-Chuck, so you'd better like it. I've also considered bagging the suspension to adjust the ride height separately, front/rear. The real key, I suppose, is the wheel/tire combo...it's the baseline for the rest...and they would have to be raised white lettering...IMO.

    Yep, that's an interesting solution that doesn't require raising the rear end beyond maybe running taller tires.

    Check out "Stainless Works" Sideburners which should work on the Challenger Hellcat. Not sure these are needed but they're designed well and don't create much of a ground clearance issue at all either.[​IMG]
