I'm going to be putting on a dual exhaust this summer. I've read a number of installation instructions, and viewed a number of videos, but I haven't found good instructions for removing the stock exhaust.

This may be a dump question.... Looking under the car it looks to me that the Y connector is welded. Is it actually welded, or is it just a clamp removal to get the old exhaust off.

2010 Challenger SE 3.5


Thank you!

Pretty sure they come from the supplier as 1 complete unit for assembly, so chances are its welded.
You going to do it yourself ?

I'm going from the single to dual exhaust, so I was planning on replacing everything from before the Y connector back. The installation of the new cat backs look pretty straight forward. Sounds like I'll have to cut off the Y connector and drop the remaining. First step however is to get a new facia, and go from there.

Thank you!

Looks like a guy with a steady hand could almost cut that out lol.
Price seems reasonable for the new one though.
I remember the early chargers had 2 cutouts regardless of single or duals :)

Good luck with your project...snap a few pix

Thanks for the diagram. I was actually wondering if there was a template out there, so that I could simply dremel out the opening for the tips. Wonder if anyone has done this instead of replacing the facia? Maybe there's a reason why thats a bad idea.

When I replaced the single outlet on my 2007 Magnum SXT 3.5L, I roughly cut as little of the opening as I had to get the tips in place. Then I used the tips as a guide and used 3/8" pinstriping tape to mark what I wanted to cut. Cut it with an air body saw with a fine blade.

I've not heard of a template but there are some old threads here where members have cut the rear fascia. You should be able to make yourself a template and measure around from the wheel well and just reverse it on the drivers side to mark & cut.
