i was wondering if anyone out that not only had one of these beautiful chargers, but had thought about modifying the exhaust to the magnaflow exhaust?? i have notheard anything if the chip will also have to be changed or not. I am hoping someone out there loves their car as much as I love mine and had thought, or made the modification and has any feedback for me on this.
I was also kicking it around to change the seatblet system to the 5 point restraignt, since i have the sport package.....any thoughts?

Just curious if the SRT 8's price was the main reason you did not like it. If you could get one for about $36,500, would you still prefer to modify a R/T over the SRT8?

As I just posted I used the magnaflo duel exhaust setup and removed the extra canister from the Charger. I also used the jet performance mods for my ecm and put an AEM brute force cold air intake on the car. with that i spent around $1200 and gain 34 hp at the rear wheels according to the dyno. hope that helps you on you upgrades.

i do alot of work for the car dealers and i bought my r/t with the road and track package for 30k out the door. with paint lowering kit wheels and tires and engine mods i am still in my car for around 34k. about a month ago we did wheels and a lowering kits with exhaust on a SRT8 and we ran the two cars. for the money difference I would say the SRT8 would have to be around 35k to buy one. I havent shopped in awhile but i think most dealers are still asking sticker are above for a SRT8.

I tested mine when you posted this about a month ago. I have tried to move it around a bit, etc., but it does not come off. Seems to be OK, which I would think is a GOOD thing. That means it is not a common problem, and should be "fixable"...
