    Hey All,
    Does anyone know if a DSS driveshaft will fit with a 3" aftermarket exhaust? I want to put one in my Hellcat but don't know fitment with our 3" catback exhaust. From what I understand, the CF driveshaft is 3.5" in diameter and the aluminum is 4". The CF should fit but I am worried about heat being too close to the CF DS and causing it to fail. Does anyone have any insight into this? I will go aluminum, but it's 1/2" wider than the CF and don't know on the fitment.

    You should talk to the Drive shaft folks, you can probably get in at 3.5 in, may still be good depending on how much HP you intend to put out?

    The Al DS is a standard 4" dia and will work, you will need to make sure of the clearance and move the exhaust as needed, easy to do if your doing this on a lift.

    Even with a 3" catback? I would hate to order the DS and it not fit, but I am sure my shop could make it fit.

    I had to move my exhaust even with the CF shaft, if it looks close it will be closer when the car is down and moving.
