My stock exhaust is in need of replacement.

I've been doing lots of research, and it sounds like most of you guys are running the Magnaflow muffler with good results. I love the Flowmaster sound, but it sounds like the Magnaflows flow much better, and will give better overall performance.

I was a quite exhaust while cruiseing (about as loud as stock), but something with some volume to it when I get on the gas pretty hard. I don't want any anoying droning in the cockpit while towing or on roadtrips.

Has anyone taking the stock muffler and silencer off and went with a Magnalow with a turndown right in front of the rear axle? How's it sound?

Got any pics of "dumped" exhausts so I can see how you guys are doing the mounting?

Any other info would be great. Thanks!

:D

Yeah, I have that set up. However I am at work right now and dont have any pics of the exhaust. I have had it done for 5 years now and have never thought of doing it any other way. Has a great tone while idling (not to loud, not to quite) and at WOT, I have been told that it sounds like it runs cutouts.

Great! Thanks for the info.

What about when you are just cruising on the highway at 65-76mph? Any droneing?

Why Magnaflow muffler are you running? I got on the Magnaflow site and it looks like they have a bunch to choose from.

Any more details and pics would be great!!

Thanks again for the help! :D

I had a Magnaflow exhaust for the last two years, dumped before the rear end, just like you are describing. No drone, good sound throughout the rev. Then, a month ago my rear O2 sensor went, and to keep it short, made a lot of stuff go haywire, which shot the converter, which meant I needed to replace it. So I just went (way) ahead and replaced the entire exhaust from Y pipe back to a high flow cat, to a 3" pipe back to a single in Flowmaster 40, double dumped. (I just like Flowmaster....my opinion). But Magnaflow makes a good sounding muffler that you will like. Anyway, feel free to check out my gallery, there is a pic of my exhaust in there to give you an idea. Best of luck.

Sam, (sawcut64) might have some pics of is. He had a single dumped then went to a true dual whe he staggered the mufflers to get closer to equal length per bank.

What exact Magnaflow muffler are you guys using?

Can someone give me a part # on it? Who's got the best deal on them...JEG'S?

sorry man, I dont have a part number for you, however my muffler is a 3" in and 3" out oval magnaflow. I just went to a muffler shop that had magnaflow and they put it on with the dump for something like $115. If you would like to purchase somewhere else, we do have some really good sponsers here, like Moes Performance and AirRam. Check them out. I am pretty sure that they will have what you need.

Are the inlet and outlet in the center....or do you have to go with some sort of offset on the inlet/outlet on the muffler?

I'll check with Moe's and see what they have.

Thanks!

I checked Moe's and they didn't have a working link for the Magnaflow mufflers.

I found this one at JEG'S.....will it work??

Besides this Magnaflow....should I look at one of the FM 50 series mufflers? What will sound the best? What will give the best performance with the least amount of droning?

Thanks

i have sawcuts setup now without cats. sound is awesome, just tad louder than stock. cruising at the speeds posted its very close to stock, just a bit louder.

as sam put it to me, you know its not stock but damn close i would say under 2-2500 rpm. after that it sounds mean. like a muffled cutout. deep and throaty. 3 in and out with one offset. i will try for some sound clips for you? if you want. 12289 magnaflow.

you should dump it after the axle...more quieter in the cab and virtually no drone...

What are you guys doing after you remove the cats to keep the computer from throwing up a check engine light? Also, I'm assuming that unless you have a buddy that does inspections..... your truck won't pass inspection because the cats are gone. Right?

That's the 30" long Magnaflow.....you are running that instead of the shorter 20" model 11219 ??
