    Buddy of mine brought his challenger hellcat he just got a couple weeks ago over so I could check it out. Sweet ride, but I noticed a very different exhaust sound compared to my charger hellcat. His sound is more tame, not near as deep and "throaty" as mine. I might add though, when he left he opened it up and it sounded fantastic! Put both side by side at idle, and the charger almost drowns out the chally. Just an observation, wondered if anyone else noticed a difference?

    Several have reported that their exhaust gets louder after a couple k miles. I'm experiencing the same.

    Interesting. My charger was built 2/23/15 and I have 1400 miles on it. Had 7 miles when I picked it up. It was in the service bay when I started it for the first time and it was to say the least amazing! Sound at cold start up was extreme. Have not noticed any difference since though, seems to have the same angry growl since new.

    I think Tammie was the first to report this last Spring.

    I have just over 9,000 miles on our Charger HC and the sound does change. I noticed it first about 1000 miles and some after that, now, it is way past an awesome sound. I have not had it side by side with a Challenger however.

    I believe after I gave it a battering at the road track it is louder, I am sure of it. 6000 miles also.

    Actually the changer has different mufflers then the challenger,,, take a look under the car, you will see the charger has bigger mufflers..

    Cool. That means I might have the loudest Hellcat out there. =) 19,000 miles.

    I took delivery of my Charger a week after my friend picked up his Challenger. My note was definitely deeper and throatier at idle. He has a M6 so I don't know if that plays any part.

    Ok,, let me rephrase that,, it has a rev limit,, but it's around 6200 rpms sitting still,, the A8 is something like 4000 sitting

    It's at 6200 while driving the car hard. You just make this shit up as you go?

    Your Challenger isn't as loud because it's embarrassed of being called a "Chally".
