Default Resonator Removal; Muffler Removal and FlowMaster 40 Series installed

I had the factory resonator and muffler removed today and had a FlowMaster 40 Series installed. Sounds good. Not too loud. Not so much drone. The factory stuff felt like it weighed 75lbs or better. I brought it back home in case I ever decide to sell the truck and want to put it back stock.

I took pictures in case anybody else is interested in seeing the factory system removed.

Default Exhaust Switch

It is a lot bigger truck than my 2000 Dakota as well as my 2004 Ram Hemi two door were. So it sounds quieter inside because the exhaust is further back under the truck. Outside at idle it has a light rumble. When I accelerated on the highway yesterday it sounded really smooth but a little louder than the previous 2011 Charger I had with the 3.6 liter engine.

I had a similar setup on my 2000 Dakota but I used a RAVIN muffler on it and the K&N air filter. It screamed. My 2004 Ram Hemi was a pre-owned vehicle and came with duals and glass packs installed when I bought it.

Could we talk you into cutting open one of those resonators so we can see how they're built and how much backpressure they create???? PLEASE!?

Did doing this have any impact on the performance or MPG of the Pentastar?

My average jumps between as low as 19.5 to its high at 23.5, when I'm on the highway doing a long drive I can easily average 25 for a long trip, however if I'm driving around town a lot that can easily dip to about 16 in short trips with traffic or lots of lights. I think the average MPG on my dash takes into account about the last 500 miles or so, currently its at 23.3 but I've done a fair amount of highway miles in the last week.

I've gotten over 500 miles on a full tank on almost every tank, when I fill up I usually have between 5 and 6 gallons left. I have the 26 gallon tank.
