I'm sure you get much less than that from an exhaust only. Headers and an intake would give better results with a free exhaust.

Quick question on aftermarket catback exhausts for R/T - has anyone dyno’d before/after to see RHP gains? I’m considering adding the Borla to my ‘20 DD R/T. I’m sure I’ll like the sound but was wondering about actual HP gains. I‘m thinking no more than 20-25hp.
By itself not likely. Free up the intake, then get a new tune with the exhaust, then sure. Headers will get you some more.

I think this is a serious option, wish I could hear more or from the outside but this is simple, just replace mid muffler with carven r's and leave rear resonators alone... what do you think?
is this any of you by chance or do any of you have this setup?
Hey Heat, sorry been away for a bit. That is my Durango with the Carvens. 90% of the time I love it, just the idle chuffing sound after driving it for a while is kinda meh. Not sure if that is my setup or just how the truck sounds regardless. Glad to hear you like the Borlas!

Thanks for tip. I get that. Just installed an AFE Momentum CAI, (Cai‘s seem limited with srt performance hood) and I am looking for a bit more noise and HP. Will ultimately tune it.
Have a garaged ‘09 SRT Chally that I had on-site tuned by HemiFeverTuning. Was like a different vehicle when I drove away. (They are <45 minutes from my home in NC)

How is the cabin drone around 2000 rpm on the highway? Specifically in the 2nd row seats?

Have you changed your setup any? I’m going to do the same exact same thing, but I’m going to put in an X pipe before running into the Carvens.
Nope, sure haven't. I would be really curious how yours ends up sounding with the x-pipe vs straight piped, especially in regards to any odd sounds after it has been driven for a while and then listening at idle.

I had a similar setup on a previous Durango. With no X pipe it sounded like a sick helicopter. The X pipe really smoothed it out, keeping the tone and volume.

Has anybody put any 40 series flowmasters on the hemi durango? I love the sound and am thinking about these over the black widow exhaust. If you did were they basically bolt on replacement or did anybody have to mod?

Very late but hoping to help this helps somebody I went with Borla cat back system. Purchased in end of 2020 before prices went up on everything. Used a coupon code and paid $1200 +/-. System installed great and sounds great.

What I did, to get a really good sound , but not obnoxious.. it only cost me &60. I took a reciprocating saw, chopped off the mid muffler. Bought a couple of pieces of tubing from autozone. Then paid Midas &50 to weld those tubes in place of the suitcase muffler.. no drone going down the road, great sound on the outside, and on cold crank up.. you hear it inside really only when you are accelerating, but cruising at a nice pace at low rpm’s it’s just as smooth and quiet as I like it.. killer mod.. I highly recommend
