    I have been getting many questions in regards to the fitment of our Solo Performance exhaust kits with an upgraded driveshaft. A few days ago, I had my DSS aluminum 4" driveshaft installed with the Solo Mach Shorty catback for the Hellcat.

    The 4" aluminum drive shaft just touches the muffler body in one spot, so only minor adjustments had to be made. There was no cutting, no heating, and no bending needed. We added a 1/2" spacer in the bolt right above the exhaust tips that goes into the body. After that, we just readjusted the kit and BAM! The tips have enough adjustment in them to get perfectly lined up like stock. I have been driving around for a few days and zero issues.

    Our Street Race kit has no muffler, so it should fit without any adjustment. The Mach Shorty needs the above adjustment, and all is good. Pricing is as follows:

    Street Race Catback (X pipe only- no muffler)- $875 shipped to continental US

    Mach Shorty Catback (11" short X-design muffler)- $979 shipped to the continental U
    S

    We include a return labeled box to retrofit the valves. If you or your shop will be fitting the valves back into the kit themselves, subtract $50 from the above prices.

    Thanks,

    Is this a chamber style muffler and is the kit available with quad tips?

    The muffler has a perforated X pipe inside surround by 4 chambers of packing. You get the flow and sound of an X pipe without the drone. The kit is not available with quad tips...it only reuses the OEM tips because of their shape and the shape of the opening in the fascia. Round and square tips did not look good in that shaped opening. I am sure we have quad tips that can be used, but your installer would have to fit them in there, and they probably would not look the greatest considering the trapezoidal shape of the openings.

    goingsolo2 do you have any clips of the mach shorty? So far I've only found the street race which is gonna be a tad too loud for the wife's liking.

    Thanks!

    This is it on the Scat Pack...same kit as the Hellcat:

    Maybe other members here will have a video...we didn't get the chance to take any, as we had limited time with our prototype vehicles to get the kit properly tested and jigged up.

    Thanks for posting that! I think I like how that sounds over the street race. Would love to hear it on the HC since the sound will be slightly different.

    I had it on my Hellcat...the Mach Shorty...in my opinion it is slightly smoother sounding than this one because of the SC, and has a great balance between not being too loud and not being too quiet. The exhaust note is deep and aggressive without ever becoming invasive.

    Sounds like a winner in my book. Just want that happy medium. This car is a DD so obnoxiously loud/lots of drone is outta the question.

    Something that gives a slight boost in sound over stock will sell in my book and will sell for the wife since she'll be listening to it more than me.
