Muffler Delete

Friday I did Mid Muffler delete on the trackhawk, 1K miles. Straight piped from cats to the stock resonators. Holy $hit its loud. I had a 2015 srt previously which had catted ARH headers and mid muffler delete and I thought that was loud but it was nothing like this. The trackhawk resonators must be a higher flow then the 15 srt for sure. These have more of a hollow sound to them. Regardless this now has a lot of gurgling and popping then before. Volume is up bigtime. Super quiet on the highway, but when you hit the gas its a beast.

I did this only because I was thinking of going borla atk but before I spent the $ on that I wanted to see what this brought for the $200 for the muffler removal. This was 100% worth it.

Disclaimer... the supercharger wine is much harder to hear now but the exhaust note is wicked.

Bummer was thinking of trying this but it sounds to loud for me. I traded a 2016 SRT in for the Trackhawk and miss the SRT sound with the ATAK Axle back kit.

So my question is this.... what exactly is the difference in what I did vs. buying another system? The borla also removes the suitcase muffler but adds a x pipe if im correct along with their resonators. In my situation I straight piped to the factory. Ideally this is the same thing and a fraction of the cost. Let me know if im wrong. I just dont get spending the $1600 on something that does the same thing.

Im sorry I am lost.
there is manifolds to cats to mufflers to X to tips.
i can see the mufflers as a suit case but what is a resonator then?

I was going to add the Livernois mid pipe and wondering if that is what you did? I had though that pipe was just deleting the cats?
anyways thanks for help

@Rocket. The mid muffler is just post the cats and is about the size/shape of a suitcase, then there are two resonators/mufflers closer to the tailpipes.

Technically it’s all just pipes underneath but what most people find out by modifying their exhaust (especially on the cheap) is that you wind up with cabin drone. If you want to get really technical about performance related aspects of exhaust modification, research exhaust scavenging.

I originally just did the suitcase delete. It was loud as f all the time and not really a nice tone, just loud. Would not recommend this option alone, definitely do some sort of system

It sounds like you may be referring to the resonators / secondary mufflers before the exhaust tips. Our mid-pipes would only eliminate the primary cats and would leave the catback system intact. Then some guys are deleting the mufflers (Suitcase) after the cats which makes the exhaust a bit more aggressive than what most are looking for on a street driven vehicle, and can definitely cause some drone type of issues as others have mentioned on here as well.
