    Sounds like a fart in a tin can. Looks like the dealer has messed it up

    I think they sound fine,,I know that the mufflers are different on the charger, then the challenger..If you look under the car, you will see what I'm talking about..

    did they perhaps forget to plug the exhaust valve actuators back in, when they dropped the exhaust to change out the rear diff?

    Just guessing here but I think when they swapped out the differential... they disconnected the exhaust valves or damaged them in some way. Tell us... from a cold start is it very loud on start up and slowly get quieter as the RPM's come down. That would be an indicator the valves are working.;)

    you guys think that the dealer will be able to test those actuators if they work properly?

    Try this... Put the car in Track Mode and see if the exhaust note changes.
