So, I just ordered my Magnaflow 14" muffler and y-pipe. Hopefully they get here soon so I can make my truck growl!

DO you guys think while I'm having the shop weld that up, should I have them take off the resonator or just leave it?

I had mine removed and had the exhaust dumped after the axle.

The 14" center in/offset out is #12229, and the Y-pipe is 10778.

As for the resonator, if you dont mind a little drone, then take it off and let it rip. They are easy enough to remove that I would leave it on there for now though to see how you like the sound. If you feel you want it a little louder, it is very easy to remove afterwards. I would hate for you to remove the resonator now only to find that it is too loud and then have to pay to have it welded back on.

The definition of "Drone" is different from person to person, but mine doesn't really drone at all. You can hear it in the cab while cruising, but it's far from annoying.

I agree. That is why I recommend not cutting it off from the start though. I have had customers tell me that hey had drone with the 24" mufflers, and others say that the same muffler sounds stock. Exhaust is a tough subject to offer advice on because everyone has different tastes and different levels of what they consider to be loud or quiet.

I've been reading this Forum and other Ram Forumz for years. There's a general consensus that removing the resonator brings on some or all of the drone sound. The 14 is plenty loud. You should have your answer by now.

I must be getting old and went with an 18.

Hey Guys, my Magnaflow muffler and y-pipe arrived yesterday. Gonna call the exhaust shop tomorrow and set something up. I can't wait to have them put on. And I think I am going to leave the resonator on for now.
I can't wait for my truck to sound like a truck!

Welp, got the Y-pipe and muffler put on today. Looks good. The shop just took everything off between the y-pipe and muffler and welded all that together instead of cutting sections out. Looks pretty good.
I have one concern: I can not really hear it in the truck itself. I know that sounds stupid. My 2010 Ram 1500 I had a Borla catback and I could hear it with the windows up. It was not overwhelming, but I could hear it.
I had the shop leave on the resonator today. I was outside the truck and it sounds good. I had a buddy rev it up... sounds good. I just like to hear it more. SO would taking the resonator off make it that much louder? I will more than likely just take it off, but thought I'd ask you fellas.

Yes. The resonator is there to reduce the sound in the cab. many people dont like the noise on long trips or while towing. If you want to hear more of the exhaust inside, then chop that resonator off, and you are good to go.

Did you ever chop the resonator off? I am curious as to what your impressions were between with and without.

JustBob - I didn't take off the resonator yet. I am still thinking I Might. I now have a welder handy so if I chop it off I can just dump the exhaust like Myoung. It sounds good with it on. Really only time I can really hear it in the truck is when Its under load. I still think the Borla I had on my 1500 was louder. I will prolly chop it off... I'll let ya know when I do.l

Thanks for the feedback!

I just had a 14" magnaflow installed on mine and am not caring for it much at the moment. I will likely swap in an 18" or 22" muffler after a few weeks. The 14" drones too much for me at low RPMs and under partial load.

I have the 22" muffler and a Y pipe it is perfect, you can hear it when you get on it and a slight growl otherwise no in-cab done. If you add a aftermarket CAI the sound level will increase primarily a full wide open throttle.

Thanks for the feedback! The local shop does not stock the 22" so I will need to order one (they only carry the 18" & 14"). They are trying to tell me that you can't hear the difference from stock with the 22" muffler and that is why they do not stock them. I don't buy that and am leaning towards the 22" at the moment.
