Jake: Jake here for American Muscle, and today I'm taking a look at the Solo Performance Street Race Cat-Back Exhaust for 2015 and newer 5.7-liter Hemi Chargers. If you're looking for some raw, powerful sound out of your Hemi Charger, then look no further than this setup from Solo Performance. This is a loud, well-designed, full cat-back system, with a lot of good features packed in at a good price. So, if you want the best kind of sound, this is the one that should be on your shopping list. Now, again, this is a full cat-back system, so this is gonna take the place of all of your factory mufflers and resonators, though it is gonna keep your stock catalytic converters intact. And as you may have already noticed, there are no traditional mufflers or resonators on the table here with me, and that's because, well, this system doesn't have any.And as you heard at the clips at the beginning of the video, that means that this sucker is loud. Loud enough, in fact, to garner the full five out of five on our loudness meters. Wake the neighbors, this one definitely will. It's deep, it's aggressive, it's raw and purposeful, and it makes that Hemi sound the way everybody already expects it to. Now, inside the cabin, of course, this is going to be a much louder experience than stock, but it's not gonna blow your eardrums out, and you can still enjoy taking a road trip. And that is due in no small part to what Solo Performance has baked in here. Now, this system has some really cool features, and they've gone to great lengths to ensure that though this may have a lot of volume, there is no drone. Now, at the front of the system, you get a built-in H-pipe, and that's gonna help equalize pressure throughout the engine's operating range. But it's also gonna help cancel out those obtrusive frequencies that are created when cylinder deactivation kicks in and makes the engine run in four-cylinder mode.So many exhaust for these LX platform cars don't account for that changeover, meaning that when you're just driving around normally, everything sounds great, until, of course, those cylinders shut off. And it's gonna leave you with better mileage, but a terrible racket. And that is avoided here. Now, behind that, there is an X-pipe, and if you're not familiar, these are gonna help equalize out exhaust pressures and resonant frequencies that are naturally created by traditional V8s that have uneven firing orders, like the Hemi. So, this also helps mitigate any drone, because it allows for this crossover in the center section here. The final piece of the puzzle are these adjustable J-pipes, also known as Helmholtz resonators. Now, unlike inline resonators that you'd find on most stock exhaust systems, these don't fundamentally alter the sound profile of the car, but they do cancel out any unwanted or dissonant frequencies, again, all leading up to there being no drone. But they do cancel out any unwanted or dissonant frequencies. Again, all that means that you're not gonna get any drone. And to me, that is the best part here.Now, construction is all 2.5-inch mandrel-bent T409-grade stainless steel, so it's gonna provide some good protection against the elements, though not quite as much as a full 304 setup would be. But you're also not gonna pay the full price of a T304 stainless system either. I'm gonna talk more on that in a moment. Now, the mandrel bending of course means that there's no creases or weird bends or anything in the metal, making for very smooth exhaust flow all the way through. Now, you might have also noticed that there are no tips included here, and that is because this system is designed to work with your stock tips, the ones that are integrated into the bumper. But they can also work with any other tip that has a 2.5-inch inlet diameter.So, though you don't get them included here, that does mean a bit more of a cost savings for you, and it also allows you the flexibility to customize the look of your exhaust exactly the way that you want it. Now, speaking of all that, pricing for this system is gonna come in at about $875, and that does put it toward the lower end of the price spectrum for cat-backs for this gen of Charger. And with a good, quality exhaust, with all these features included, I really don't think that's a bad deal at all. In fact, given the H, X and J-pipes that are baked in here, I think it's a bit of a bargain, because we don't see all of that included in most systems. You might get one, but definitely not all three. So, if you want that head-turning volume without the annoyances that often comes with it, this has got to be your pick.Installation will come in at a two out of three on the difficulty meter, and it should take you about two hours to complete. Now this is a fully bolt-in system, and it's gonna use all of your factory exhaust hanger locations, so there's no cutting or modification required to your car in order to get this one fitted. And you also get new hardware and clamps included in the box, so you'll have everything you need to get this on your car. And with that, let's throw it over to the install bay, where we'll walk you through it.Man: The tools you'll need for this project are a hanger removal tool, a half-inch drive ratchet, a long extension, 15-millimeter swivel socket, a 13-millimeter and a 15-millimeter socket, a 13-millimeter wrench, a 15-millimeter wrench, an impact gun, some spray lubricant, and a cloth.Hi, everyone. Today we're installing an exhaust on our Charger, but before we can do that, let's get started with the uninstall of the stock system first. So, the first thing we're gonna wanna do is use a little spray lube on the isolator behind the muffler, so that we can get that hanger out of the exhaust. Now we can use our hanger removal tool and push this out, and then use our 13-millimeter wrench to remove the two nuts on our exhaust flange. Now we'll remove the two rear hangers. One of them is right behind the wheel, and the other one is right at the end of the muffler. So, we're using our 13-millimeter socket. We'll get those taken out. Now we can remove the two rear hangers on the passenger side, and then move up to the two crossmembers that have to come out as well.Now we'll remove the two crossmembers here, and here, using our 13-millimeter socket. Now we can loosen up the two front clamps, using our 15-millimeter socket. Now, we've got one more bolt to remove. It's right up here on the passenger side, right next to the differential. So, we're gonna use our 13-millimeter wrench to get that out. And then we can go ahead and get an extra pair of hands, because we're on a lift, to go ahead and remove the rest of the exhaust. Okay. Like I said earlier, since we're on a lift, I got my buddy Mark here to help me lift this out. So, what we're gonna do, we're just gonna lift it up off of the hook here, push it back, to get it off the front pipes, and then lower it down.So, before we actually begin the install, first thing we need to do is transfer all of our hangers from our stock system to our new system. To do that, we're gonna use our hanger removal tool, and just move everything from one system to the other. Now we just need to slip these back on in the same location that we took them off of the stock system.Now we can go ahead and slide a couple of clamps on our front H-pipe, and slide it onto our stock pipes. Now we'll slip a couple clamps onto our mid-pipe, and slide it over on our front pipe. Now we'll just hook this hanger on the vehicle, and insert the one on the other side as well. So, one thing to note, before we install our tailpipe, is you'll see this J-pipe right here comes attached from the factory. However, it's not in the position that it needs to be in in order to install it in the vehicle. So what we'll have to do, loosen this clamp here, tilt the pipe out, install it in the vehicle, and then we can tighten it back up. Just push that to the outside. Now we can go ahead and install our tailpipe. All right. Now that we've got the J-pipe adjusted, we can go ahead and slip it up inside, and secure it with the original hardware. Now, we've already adjusted the J-pipe on the driver's side, so we'll just go ahead and insert it. And like I said, we'll secure it with the original hardware. Now we can go ahead and connect our flanges, using the supplied hardware.Now that we've got everything loosely installed, it's a good time to go through and check all of your clearances. Make sure nothing's touching, there's no wires in the way, the tailpipes, and especially the J-pipes, make sure they're away from any body panels. One other important note, when you go to tighten up these flanges here, make sure that you do them evenly, to keep the pipes from shifting side to side. Now we can tighten all our clamps, using our 15-millimeter socket. Now we can go ahead and reinstall our crossmembers, using our original hardware. And we'll tighten it down with our 13-millimeter socket.And that wraps up our review and install of the Solo Performance Street Race Cat-Back Exhaust for the '15 to current Hemi Charger.
