Default True Dual Exhaust for my 12 Hemi

Well after weeks of debate and numerous threads searching for answers to all the questions i had about what i should do exhaust wise. Today i had true dual exhaust put on my truck and i absolutely love it. i cut out the factory y pipe, installed a polished x-pipe with two FM super 10' and cut out the resonators and replaced with straight pipe. i love the sound and there is hardly any drone and she is mean when you get on her ive posted a few pics and i will post a video of start up. let me know what you guys think

Nice job.

Bet it's LOUD under WOT.

One question: why didn't they use the same diameter pipe for the resonator delete pipe-thru? Seems they went significantly bigger.

What does WOT mean? well dodge does stupid things the factory Y is 2 1/2 then it went into the long 3" pipe then after the muffler it turns into 2 1/4" so the guy at the shop made everything 2.5" but kept everything after the muffler to specs since it was already mandrel bends and didnt wanna mess anything up so where he cut the resonators out he just welded 2.5" straight pipe she he didnt mess with the bends after the muffler. it does sound really good and when im on the highway cruising at 70 and i punch it the truck just takes off like there is no tomorrow

ya its pretty loud but i have noticed a good increase when im just crusing along and i just punch it it really opens up, and i noticed im getting a little better gas mileage when im in the city as well as on the highway. im undecided as what to do next if i wanna do the intake or if i wanna throw the headers on and complete the exhaust before i move onto the next thing
