    Anyone getting any exhaust pops when slowing down from running from a hard acceleration?

    Yes, It's normal. Sounds great, doesn't it?

    Unburned fuel lighting in the exhaust. I used to be able to set that up on purpose with my old WRX. If I timed it just right, I could scare the shit out of people on the sidewalk. Childish, yes. But a lot of fun.

    LOL reminds me of one time I happened to have that happen in a bobtail truck, it had a big muffler so it would make a very, very loud bang. It just so happened that the bang went off right next to a California Highway Patrol motor officer working on the shoulder with another customer. Of course, it was unintentional, and also of course it scared the shit out of the motor officer. And naturally after having the shit scared out of him he got mad and he immediately came after me and pulled me over. I didn't get a ticket but he did look the truck over for any possible mechanical violations.

    The gurgling pops the Hellcat produces are very cool sounding fortunately not nearly as loud as the backfire explosions that scare the shit out of people. I love those little pops the Hellcat produces.

    I wouldn't mind a solid shot of flame out the exhaust like a true "backfire"

    I don't like those lazy flames that come from those flame thrower kits.

    Back in the day, I had a 1973 challenger, 4 speed with open headers. I would roll down main street in my town and turn the key off and pump the shit out of the gas while in gear, it would load up the cylinders with raw fuel then hit the key to ignite that shit, BANG! would scare the hell out of everyone on the street. ahh the good ol days! Would get thrown in jail if I did that today! GO TRUMP!

    I was very surprised and pleased how the A8 mimics a manual and downshifts, creating the pop & crackle sounds. Definitely one of those cool, unexpected tricks Hellcats have up their sleeve.

    Had a girlfriend reach over and shut the car off on my 70 nova playing around. When I turned it back on, boom. Split both mufflers. Not a big deal as it sounded better that way anyway. Removed mufflers on my cat, no it really gurgles. Love it.

    Remove the cats and it pops all the time when decelerating.
