I had my GPDW250's installed this morning. Fully welded on no clamps.
The fit was perfect. The finish is amazing. It seemed pretty easy for the exhaust shop to install them but they still charged me $80 for like 45 mins of work. They did take the time to make sure everything was aligned prefect though so I can appreciate that.
The sound at startup and idle is much deeper than stock. I love it. Also, cruising around town at partial throttle is great as well. Deeper and louder. The only dissappointment was WOT. It sounds no different than stock at WOT. I have the 340hp suitcase and that's probably the difference. If I had the 350hp suitcase I think it would be better at WOT.
I took it up on the highway and ran it steady for MDS to kick on. I still can't tell if MDS is on or not so that tells you that there was no drone at all.
This mod is definately wife approved.
Now I'm probably going to be on the lookout for a 350hp suitcase that almost everyone throws away when they get a cat-back system.
Talk to Bob and get the Magnaflow Mufflers will sound much better
AZ Modern Mopar MuscleBack in a Mopar!!
Is it this one:
Blastin Bob's Daytona & R/T 350hp 6 db Resonated kit w/DW tips
Get rid of those sound deadening resonators using straight thru all aluminized 2.50" core glasspack mufflers & stainless tips This kit adds approx. 6 db over stock
Item #: GPDW250
This is the exact one I'm thinking of getting and the "no drone" is definitely a huge part of the equation. Any chance of a sound clip? I've love to also see a pic of them installed as I believe the tips look cool as hell and a vast improvement over stock.

I have the 6db Daytona kit with my 340 hp Magnum & love the wot sound, perfect compliment to the AFE stage 2 cai. No drone, can't hear mds kick in, nice rumble on mild acceleration and slightly louder than stock @ idle. Looks great too, I'm very happy Bob reccomended this set for me. I got tagged $80 for the install too.

The swap would depend on how it was taken off. It would be 3 welds minimum and 4 if the flange was removed. Probably a little more then twice as difficult as installing a kit.
- About how much heavier is the suitcase than a pair of aftermarket mufflers?
- Would a pair of mufflers welded together side by side work about the same as the stock suitcase for stifling the MDS effect? Or 3/ is that too stupid to even contemplate? HAHAHA!
