Velocity has more importance to the driver who regularly operates in the higher RPM ranges for extended periods. Back-pressure and scavenging are more important to the rock crawler and traffic creeper who want low-end torque. Most of us want something that falls in between. Not too much velocity that lower end response is flat and not too much back-pressure that high-RPM running feels laggy. Personally, when I look at dyno charts I'm looking more at the torque curves and where they are rather than peak HP numbers. Those will tell you more about overall driveability than a peak HP rating that is above 5000 RPM.
I agree with the previous post 100%

I've got an 18 inch Maganflow muffler on my 1500 sport, but was wanting to get it louder, should I go with a straight pipe?

Do you have a modified Y-pipe yet? Are you planning on headers? I would do those things first, if you intend to. No muffler sounds very raw and raspy to me, but some people like it.

I loved the sound of my Flowmaster super 40 true dual system on one of my previous chevy's, also like the magnaflow I had on a couple fords. Still up in the air about which way to go with this one. Leaning towards the flowmaster

So you're saying the stock junk will outflow a 2 chamber flowmaster? I could maybe see that with a 3 chamber, but have a hard time believing it with a 2 chamber. I could be wrong though.....

I just installed the Magnaflow Y-Pipe and AT3030XL. Kept the cats and resonators. For me, it's perfect. Sounds awesome and throaty when you start it up and sounds mean during low RPM city driving under 2K. Once you get over 2K on the interstate it mellows out and has zero drone. When MDS kicks in it's really nice and quiet. Punch it and it roars to life.

Like most I was very up in the air on which muffler to go with, so many to choose. Have 09 sport with hemi, wanted it to sound like it should. Went with magnaflow 14", was worried at first going that small I would be that guy that the neighbors hated. Was really concerned with having drone. Have had it on for 2 weeks and loving it, very mellow around town but sounds amazing at WOT. Took first highway trip this last weekend, anywhere between 65 and 80 speed wise, no drone what so ever. Had mother in truck with me and could have conversation no problem at all. Have read complaints about sounding bad in gas saver mode but haven't noticed anything like that with mine. Left resonaters on so not sure if thats where they are having that issue.

So which muffler is best? Looking at a Magnaflow 14 inch, but wondering between the SI/DO or the DI/DO. Performance wise which is best?

Has anyone seen the latest issue of Truckin Magazine? In it the have a Dodge article with a muffler swap and use the latest offering from Flo Pro. It is HUGE! Looks to be the same size but I would think it would be perfect for someone who is looking for a relatively quiet muffler?

I have had Borla, a couple magnaflows, a 40 series flowmaster, and a super 44 flowmaster. I loved the borla but it was just to quiet, just above stock. I have a 14''inch magnaflow now and it sounds great as usual. The guys are right about flowmaster though, great sound, but not the best for performance. Just ask Matt at Moe's performance and he will be completely honest with you, he will only sale products that work on his site, you will never see a flowmaster muffler, or exhaust anywhere on his site. Baffles are a restriction, and the point of us installing performance mufflers and exhausts is to get rid of all the restictions that were installed by the manufractures. Hope this helps?

You did real Good HoundDog, [Clip ??] Definitely stay with the Magnaflow for H.P. & Nice Mellow Sound with little to no drone!

That's my plan also, to order the 18" 12288 Magnaflow & have our local Pro Muffler Guy with a Lift & Equipment make up the 2 little pipes.

Not sure where this stands with other mufflers but if you look on FloPro's website it says the stock OEM muffler flows 940 CFM? Is that right? Wouldn't that be way ahead of most other mufflers?
