If I can do it, anyone can do it, I'm not the most tech savvy either, but you're welcome, no problem.

I went into your album, got the pic in fulll size, and then right clicked. A menu box popped up and I selected "Copy Image Address".

Then I went into the "Quick Reply" box, selected "Image" , then pasted the image address.....voila'. Upsized pic.

If i hadn't done it, someone else would have, we've got a pretty good bunch here, not like the usual internet keyboard cowboys.

And I'm not sure I'd know what to do with the extra horsepower; 435 seems to be more than enough for getting into mischief! Just think - it's got ten more horsepower than the original modern iteration of the Challenger, the 2008 SRT .

I was thinking of upping the decibels a bit with either a Borla Touring or Magnaflow Street cat-back, but when I hear the sound comparisons on Youtube I shake my head and think. "Dang, those factory pipes sound pretty alpha-male." If I do swap cat-backs, it will likely be for the improved performance (less weight, more flow) as much as for the sound.

I have a pic of the GT on my Facebook page; I'll try to import it here, but I'm not very tech savvy.

Love those Brembos.
I have Roush on my Boss and really like them, but they can be loud in the upper RPMs. Donít forget MBRP, a great CANADIAN company in Huntsville, ON. My friend has them on his 2016 PP and they are great sounding. Canít remember which ones thou.

Apocalypse Pony: Thanks for "upsizing" my GT's picture. How did you do that? Did you use a magic wand? (Like I said, I'm not tech savvy; in fact, I bought a computer and got on the Internet only a couple of months ago - no, really.)
You can always add one of these with any axle back of your choice

Most of the weight savings you will see with a cat back is from the resonator being removed

Thanks everyone for the information and suggestions. I think I should open a new thread in the Help Zone forum to discuss this cat-back/axle-back issue further.
