    Upgrading single V6 exhaust to R/T duals with Part Numbers

    Well, instead of hijacking everyone else's threads, I figured I'd start my own, that way I can put it all together and in one place. I upgraded my 11 Crew v6 to the factory R/T exhaust and figured I'd put my research findings into one place so anyone else looking to upgrade to duals can find it.

    This is what you are starting with:

    Chrysler Parts Diagram:
    Upgrading single V6 exhaust to R/T duals with Part Numbers-tg11315.jpg

    Actual Item take off the v6:
    Upgrading single V6 exhaust to R/T duals with Part Numbers-v6-exhuast.jpg

    And as you can see here on the R/T Parts diagram, there are a few items that are missing to attach the resonator on the driver side (parts 12, 14, and 15):
    Upgrading single V6 exhaust to R/T duals with Part Numbers-tg11325.jpg

    Parts needed:
    -Dual Exhaust of your choice - I picked the factory R/T exhaust bought second hand that I found here. You could also pick Flowmaster/Magnaflow/Borla/Corsa/etc, and any will fit
    -Driver Side Hanger Bracket (#12 in diagram) - Part# 68056521AC
    -Driver Side Pipe Isolator (rubber bushing, #14 in diagram) - Part# 5103520AA
    -Driver Side Resonator Isolator (rubber bushing, #15 in diagram) - Part# 52128501AA
    -New Lower Bumper Valence (will cover part #s later)

    If you pick the factory R/T exhaust, this is the actual "take-out parts you should get when you pick up the R/T exhaust:

    Make sure that if you are installing or having someone install, that the extension pipe from the v6 exhaust is used to attach the passenger cat-pipe to the muffler. The one from the dual v8 setup won't work. Also, for reference, the v8 exhaust will fit in the back of a Durango with the rear shut, but the front passenger seat will need to fold flat (sorry Citadel owners, you might run into issues transporting)

    Now for the confusing part, the rear bumper lower valence. There are 8 different part numbers, and this piece gave me the most frustration in my search, since not all sites listed the differences between them and others used a 3 digit "sales code" that is known to Chrysler P&A people but not general public. I had to call many different dealership before I found one in Dallas that would help me out (keep in mind I'm in California)

    Which one do you pick? Depends on options and desired look. There are 3 different "option choices" that make the different part numbers:

    -With or Without Dual Exhaust
    -With or Without Accent Color
    -With or Without Tow Package

    Since 4 of the 8 part numbers are for the single exhaust setup, I will exclude them, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this

    Remaining part numbers: ***Note, these are for the 11-13 MY, the 14+ has a different valence***
    68092112AA - With Accent Color/Without Tow Package
    68092115AA - Without Accent Color/Without Tow Package
    68092113AA - With Accent Color/With Tow Package
    68092116AA - Without Accent Color/With Tow Package

    Tow package is pretty self explanatory, so if you have one, pick the 68092113AA or 68092116AA. If you don't have a tow package, pick 68092112AA or 68092115AA

    This next part was the hardest for me to get info on: What does "With Accent Color" and "Without Accent Color" mean. This is where that Dallas dealer was very helpful.

    Does your Durango have/want the textured black pieces on the bottom all the way around like this?


    Then you want to get "With Accent Color"

    Do you have/want smooth, painted pieces all the way around the bottom (I believe only R/T, Heat, and Rally-e) like this?
    Upgrading single V6 exhaust to R/T duals with Part Numbers-dodge-durango-heat-1297291661.jpg

    Then you want to get "Without Accent Color"



    For mine, I used 68092112AA because I wanted to keep the black around the bottom and I don't have a tow package (will add later), and combined with the R/T exhaust, here is before and after:



    And since I love the sound, here are a couple sound clips I took:

    Start/idle/rev/launch


    Light Throttle Drive-by


    ****UPDATE****

    Took a vid today merging onto the freeway so everyone can hear the "popping" sound during hard acceleration upshifts. I have only heard it on 1-2 shifts, but never accelerated that hard for 2-3 or other shifts

    Nice job! The rear end looks so much better with duals, imo.

    Great job. They should all have duals. I mean -- even the Explorer does. It's tough to find something in this class that doesn't.

    I wonder if the 2014 rallye has the same exhaust or something similar. I know its a performance exhaust but does it sound like that when you rev?

    I believe Heat and Rally-e just use the standard v8 exhaust from Limited/Crew/Citadel to account for the extra hp, because they don't have any different sound from the standard v6. Also, all the literature I read just says "dual exhaust" or "dual exhaust tips" and doesn't mention performance exhaust or anything. R/T literature does mention an R/T specific exhaust, but doesn't call it performance, only "tuned"

    Nice! I'd like to do the rt exhaust as well but I also want to install the Mufflex resonator delete kit (below). I think it will improve the sound even more.

    Actually with the V6 Using just the R/T exhaust will sound good, Using the Mufflex as well, maybe not so good and no backpressure and less TQ.

    Yea, I would think so. Also, the lack of back pressure from a resonator delete kit might make it sound farty and like an import

    Even the R/T exhaust on the V6 sounds a little raspy for my taste. I'm used to the deeper sound of Magnaflows. The Mufflex delete may cause a lot of drone on the highway. There's also very little details on that kit. I assume it deletes both rear mufflers/resonators?
