Default Muffler/Back Pressure

Ok a friend of mine just had his Hemi Charger in for an exhaust...

He found out he liked it better with no mufflers

I agree it sounds SOOOOOOO sick

Question..

Would removing the mufflers for a little while on the GXP have any ill affects ?

I'm thinking a few days ? well maybe not that long.

LOL I had a 355 with just CATS and loved it...

But it wasn't good for lack of back pressure.. or at least thats what I thought.

And that charger sounds sweet with out but it'* loud as foook

It shouldn't change anything. Today'* mufflers (and exhaust systems in general) aren't very restrictive. The most restrictive parts are usually up front; manifolds etc. Changing the muffler won't change back pressure but any measurable amount.

It'll probably sound pretty beastly. I straight piped my 85 Continental (5.0 V8 ) and it sounded MUCH more beastly than it actually was, hell my 3.8 V6 Bonne SE would rape it in a race.

You're getting terms mixed up here, you don't want any backpressure at all in an exhaust system, but you want flow rate to be high. Ripping off the mufflers shouldn't be an issue for flow in the 00 system..
