ready for my first mod.
 
so im ready for my first mod. I want to swap out my exhaust. Should i go with cat back, or just muffler?. And should i go with magnaflow, or flowmaster?

id deffinatly do cat back and open up the whole system. as far as flow master or magnaflow i have a flowmaster on my dak and nothing on my ram lol... its all a matter of prefrence but what i would go with is something with a flow through design i wouldnt get any muffler you cant drop a golfball straight through it... that will let it breathe the most freely

Can't pick the brand...that's all on you depending on what sound you want. I'll just say I like the Magnaflow sound. If you want something close to a Flowmaster 40 series, there is also the Mufflex 14" muffler. I chose Magnaflow for it's sound and warranty.

Your truck needs some backpressure to maintain low end torque. Also, when it slips into MDS, a catback without resonators will probably drone badly.

If you have a single exhaust now but want the look of duals, consider a single in / dual out muffler and new tail pipes. Then either re-use your stock resonator and get another one for the other new pipe or get two new ones.

Just my .02 on the subject.

thanks maddog... been looking at magnaflow, and i like the sound of it, also like the warranty like you were saying...

If the Y is anything like the 3G's then i would also look into replacing it with a better flowing Y.

I'd definitely say cat-back with Magnaflows. I have flowmasters and they can get a little annoying after a while. Magnaflow's have a much nicer tone as well. But it's all personal preference.

thats what ive heard the magnaflow has a more mellow soothing tone compared to the flowmaster

Yeah they do. Flowmasters can sound good but after a while, you'll get tired of them unless you like loud all the time. I'd like to do a magnaflow set up with some electric cutouts so I can be loud when I wanna be.

i have flowmaster si/do 40series on my 3.7 dakota and yea i want a deeper more mellow tone to it

Id say magnaflow. Its more reasonable then Flowmaster for daily driving.
