Job Of The Week (1) - Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 SCD

Posted by Team Shared #1 on

What Did We Work On:

This week we had the pleasure of working on the popular Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L 4X4 SCD. This specific model was converted in QLD, which created some fitting issues we navigated around. 

The customer wanted that V8 sound which so much of our customers are after. We recommended the Manta - Ram 1500 5.7L V8 3" Inch Stainless Steel Catback Exhaust System with centre muffler and tailpipes. The exhaust system features a straight through muffler manufactured from 409 stainless steel. This helps unlock the V8 sound the customer was chasing (Manta class the noise level as medium).

About The Work:

Because this system wasn't suited to fit this model we needed to fabricate new hangers, reposition hangers, and bend tubing to make it fit for that factory look. 

The reason is because the current Manta systems are only suited for the HSV (VIC) converted models. Manta are currently working on a direct bolt-on system for the QLD converted models which R&D is due to be finished this month. We will upload the new product once it is made available to us.

Our Take:

What we liked about the system is the 409 stainless steel material and finish. This grade of steel lasts longer compared to mild steel and according to our in house workshop manager sounds better. We also prefer to fabricate with 409 as it welds the same as mild and last longer.

We believe the Manta system had a crisp deep note which wasn't overbearing and didn't drone. If you want to hear it yourself check out the video uploaded courtesy of Manta.
