    Guys,

    Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I own a 2015 Challenger hellcat M6 with 650 miles and interested in purchasing a cat-back systems.

    Your experience:
    Type of system
    Ease of installation (self installed or mechanic)
    Track mode flaps installed or by-pass all together

    Thanks
    Matty

    Mattscat...Are you looking for a power gain or are you looking for the sound?

    I ask due to most of the post that I've read indicate that if you're looking for power there's
    very little to gain and in some cases power is lost with after market cat back systems.

    BUT, if you're looking for more or different sound, you'll have no problems finding a lot
    of systems that you'll be happy with.

    Best of luck and WELCOME TO THE SITE!!!

    I think I have enough performance already. A sound adjustment would be sufficient.
    Thank you for replying.

    Matt,

    I installed Zoomers on my 2012 SRT8, ran them for about 1,000 miles and found them too loud, I didn't think that would happen but they were too much for me. I sold them.

    I then installed Solo's and loved them. Just the right amount of sound and a deep growl. Nothing against Zoomers, but I think Solo's have excellent quality and they have done a good job. The folks at Solo have a Hellcat and they have two options for their Hellcat Solo's cat-back systems. I considered that for my Hellcat but I am going to keep the stock system for awhile.

    There are lots of options for you. If you google Hellcat Cat-back mufflers you will find lots of alternatives.

    Tom,

    Thank you for replying.

    Was curious if you had installed any systems on your hellcat, (sounds like you haven't yet)

    Need info on how to handle the exhaust flaps on the hellcat system.

    I had installed Flow master American Thunders on my 2012 392. When I traded it for the Hellcat the dealer did not want the stock mufflers so I gave the flow masters away. Was not aware that the 6.4 flow masters will fit the 6.2.

    The older 392's did not have the exhaust flaps which are opened in track mode.

    Thanks
    Matty

    There is a thread on this list server that speaks directly to the flaps. I think someone is close to figuring out the mechanism to bypass the flaps but it hasn't been perfected yet.

    Good luck.

    Just remove the resonators from the stock system and you will be happy. Any exhaust shop can do it. Sounds great then.
