    I was debating that, but in the few vids I did find, I wasn't liking the sound totally in some. Think I'd try a different muffler first?

    Go the cheaper route first, if you like it, great, if not you can put mufflers on it.

    I can tell you first hand you won't like any other mufflers under it.

    Here's my old 5.7 with custom 3" pipes, bullets and no resonators...

    Sounds great, but I think a bit louder than I want mine, I'm getting old, lol...

    I talked with my shop today and they are trying to sell me on a custom made xpipe all the way back straight system with some Magnaflows just in the rear spots. I think it will be like yours, a bit louder then I want, but I guess we could always add something on the mid pipe if need be after as you said...

    I asked about doing a mid muffler delete and leaving the resonators, but he seems to think I'll get drone and then want to keep adding/changing more. hmmm...

    If you delete the mids and leave the resos, you will not have drone.

    My Charger in the Instagram vid was custom 3" from the cats back, bullets for mids and no resos. On the highway cruising, it had horrible drone, especially when MDS kicked in.

    I tried several combos leading up to that set up.

    If you leave the resos on, it won't be nearly that loud either. Think old school 5.0 with Flowmasters because that's exactly what the 5.7 mid muffler delete sounds like lol

    I have a 2014 Chrysler 300C AWD 5.7 Hemi John Varvatos Limited Edition and I really love this car. The first thing I did was get the Z-Automotive Tazer (totally worth every penny), an AFE Intake, 180 degree T-stat, and a Diablo Tune. I wanted more bark out of my exhaust so I got the Corsa Xtreme (relatively silent in the car with no drone) it sounds spectacular for lack of a better word. Quiet enough for road trips without head ache and sounds like the gates of hell are opening when you romp on it. I like the Tazer because of the SRT features you can add (the gauges are very handy) and being able to control my AWD system without having to yank out fuses. Other than that only other thing I've done so far is swap out the factory 19"s for the factory 20" OEM RWD wheels for the Varvatos edition and put 255/45/20 tires on all 4 corners ( it looks WAY better now and alot more grip).

    As far as exhaust I'm pretty sure any aftermarket cat back will fit the only difference between our exhaust and the RWD is the passenger side mid-pipe is bent different for the transfer case.

    I have one more mod I bought but haven't installed yet the BR9 Charger Pursuit big brake kit. I was waiting from my front brakes to wear a little more before installing it. That is also a great mod and pretty inexpensive the Pursuit rotors are 14.5" larger than the 14" Brembos on older SRTs. Also I have Mopar Hidden Trailer hitch I need to install.

    There is cheaper ways to get SRT pages etc then the lousy and buggy Tazer (who doesn't support their product either if you have issues I found out.)

    I'd love to get my hands on a Corsa exhaust system but they are insanely expensive up here :(

    I've seen some RWD wheels on AWD Chargers etc and wasn't to fond of the look on the fronts sticking out. Again like with exhaust, wheels are getting expensive up here too. Our exchange rate isn't very good anymore makes it tougher to do things like this...

    I've never had any issues with my Tazer and yeah while there are easier ways to add the SRT pages there isn't another solution on the market currently that allows you full control of the AWD. I like being able to disable the AWD for fun stuff and things that may grenade your transfer case. From the factory you can force the AWD on but not off. The easiest way is to hit the traction control button off and it forces the 4WD on. Then there are the other ways like spin the rear tires for a few seconds or put the car in manual mode. On the earlier pre revised PCMs turning the wipers on would force the AWD on but mine has a updated PCM and the wipers have to be moving rapidly to engage the AWD. There is no way to force the AWD back to off without ripping a fuse out or using the Tazer. Once you mod the Hemi a bit RWD mode is very nice to have.

    The RWD wheels are not that bad actually and here in the states the tires for 20" wheels are about 30% cheaper which makes it worth it in my opinion. The rears sit perfect and flush with the fenders more like an SRT stock wheel instead of the 1964 Chevy Impala look of the stock 19"s, the fronts protrude slightly about an 1/8 to 1/4" but no rubbing or fender contact. The only contact I've ever got was with 5 people in the car and a trunk full of luggage over a massive dip at high speed and it still was minor with no damage to the tires or fenders, I suspect if I wasn't using the wider tires that wouldn't even have happened. Also I could roll my fenders I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    I'd add another picture but this forums antique programming won't allow me to add another picture even though I shrunk it down to the size of an icon almost, apparently it's above my data quota.

    I put this muffler delete kit on my 2010 - gets back some of the HEMI sounds that are really quieted down on the 300, retains the rear resonators so it doesn't get too abrasive and can do it yourself for <$100 (just need ramps and a sawzall). Check amazon too, they had a better price last year.

    I've seen other people say they got a shop to do it for $100, but I got quoted 300 last year so went DIY route.

    I found a little hole in the wall shop to do it. Took about 15 mins.

    First off, congratulations on your ride!

    As someone that had a Mopar strut brace on my 09 R/T AWD, I’ll echo what punisher69 says about strut braces on this platform. The only effect it seemed to have, other than depleting funds I could have spent elsewhere, was that it looked cool. That’s it. If the handling improved, I couldn’t tell.

    Good tires, though, make a serious difference.

    The Mopar CAI also didn’t improve performance. It was louder under hard throttle, but that’s all.

    I look at the money I spent on those two items as tuition. Come to think of it, I could probably put slotted rotors on my current ride in that same category.
