Anyone seen/purchased the "Shorty Exhaust" from the instagram page @Dartsofinstagram? it sounds great on the turbo but im not sure how it would sound on the 2.0 automatic... Im stuck between getting this for $150 or paying $225 for the muffler delete.

I wouldn't advise a muffler & resonator delete on the 2.0L. You need some back pressure.

@dhughes, if you are looking for performance check out some of the research here about turbo vs NA (Naturally Aspirated) exhaust theory:

http://www.dodge-dart.org/forum/dod...26637-straight-pipes-thoughts.html#post407130

Furthermore, what the NA's want it's not "back-pressure", its exhaust velocity. NA's are designed for proper flow of gas-speed may exhibit some degree of "back-pressure" as a necessary evil or result or side-effect, but "back-pressure" in and of itself is NOT a good thing. The larger the exhaust pipe is on an N/A engine the gases slow down & get all swirly, actually causing more "back-pressure". Where with the NA's we want to exit the gases as fast as possible not slow down and create the "back-pressure".

Simply put in layman's terms if you are going for the loudest exhaust then a shorty exhaust on an NA engine will produce the loudest exhaust possible AND the least productive/conducive exhaust for how NA engines are built to perform. As always it's your ride, do what you want... personalization is the key to making your ride sound, look and feel the way you want. :)
