I got the borla dual out and I've never once heard a change in tone when MDS is on or off. Corsa and i believe gibsons makes kits that attenuate the higher pitch of the MDS as well. They are a bit more $$ but I for one don't ever want to sound like a civic...
CdoilRAM is right on track here. I own a 2005 5.7ltr. LX car with MDS and tried an inexpensive FLOWMASTER C/B Exhaust system. What MOPAR says about MDS is: "a Seamless cylinder deactivation ". THAT is tuned to the factory exhaust. Before the FLOWMASTER's I could not detect, feel, or hear the "Seamless cylinder deactivation. Six weeks later I pulled the FLOWMASTER's off. She has a $$$$ CORSA C/B exhaust now. I might be comparing apples to mangos here; but I'm not settling for the "cheap stuff" for my fleet of HEMI's
