Hello everyone, I was wondering if switching to a dual exhaust from a single exhaust will over exhaust an engine and make it lose power, I hear that it supposedly gives it top end power but I hear straight from Blastin Bob that you should not do that because it makes it slower...


also, if you put a CAI, is it true it messes up an Oxygen sensor in the car's computer and causing mileage to decrease?

And that's why BB doesn't sell dual exhausts for the V6's?

He sells dual exhausts, but I mean switching to an X pipe, he uses Y pipes for his conversion kits..

Im really looking into a blasting bob resonator delete and just changing to a flowmaster, because I like the name, yes, because I like the name.

I have a flowmaster 44 series and a reso delete and I didn't notice a loss of power. I will say this though. The car was made with a single exhaust for a reason.

IMO, and from profesionals, any "loss" of power will be negligible and unoticeable. if anythin, duals, will increase your mpg

Increasing HP makes you get better gas mileage?

Thats a new one to me.
Increasing net horsepower/torque by reducing exhaust back pressure increases power available to the drive wheels. Reduction of gas mileage may result due to using the increased power to the wheels more aggressively.

That was exactly my point, just without stating it that way.


Now theoretically speaking. If you lose tourqe and gain HP you will have your foot deeper in the gas pedal to achieve "movement" so to say.

On these car's the difference is hard to notice. I barely noticed any difference.

But to each there own of course. I support anything as long as it doesn't involve vinyl stickers and or neon lights LMAO! :biggrin:

Many over at the Charger forum have installed the RT dual exhaust on their
3.5L and have not had any issues. All seem to be very happy with the change.
