The Dodge Charger and Challenger are two iconic muscle cars that have been produced by Dodge for over 50 years. They are known for their powerful engines, aggressive styling, classic muscle car heritage, and powerful and throaty exhaust notes. The 6.4-liter Hemi V8, in particular, is known for its deep, rumbling sound that can be heard from blocks away and this powerful V8 engine makes for a thrilling driving experience, whether you’re taking off from a stoplight or merging onto the highway. It’s sad to see production end in 2023 and it’s important to know there are a few simple ways to let these American icons live on.
If you’re a Charger or Challenger collector, you may have gotten used to the sound of the stock exhaust or you may want to rev things up with a new exhaust sound that reminds you of a scene from the Fast and the Furious movie. Adding a simple straight pipe mid-muffler delete system doesn’t disturb any emissions equipment and adds a nice rumbling sound to your driving experience. This exhaust upgraded doesn’t require tuning and it’s a great mod to give more performance so your Dodge will Get Noticed.
You know it’s hard to beat the sound of the iconic Hemi engine when you pair it with a premium aftermarket exhaust system. An new exhaust usually has larger exhaust tubes and muffler changes which allow the V8 Hemi engine to breathe easier. If the performance and sound of 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in the Fast and Furious 9 made you smile, you must replace the stock Hellcat system with an Extreme Cat back exhaust to experience the full American muscle car sound and performance. A word of caution though — this system is designed for the enthusiast who wants increased performance sound in ALL driving conditions.
One cool thing about your new or old Challenger or Charger is that you can customize this muscle car to meet your specific needs and preferences. You can choose a different sound level such as the Sport Touring for a more subtle sound or more attention-grabbing sound like the Street Race performance. In both cases, adding an axle back exhaust can help give you some additional horsepower and torque in your driving experience. You can also add some style to your SRT8 by changing the exhaust tips to a black matte finish for a attention-grabbing touch on your exhaust upgrade.
After 50 years in the marketplace, the Dodge Charger and Challenger have an esteem place in American muscle car history. If you’re feeling a bit bored with your Dodge lately or you want to give your car a new lease on life, installing an aftermarket exhaust with a deeper, more aggressive sound will make you want to drive it more often. Aftermarket exhausts can help rekindle your passion for the car and let the American muscle sound live on.
