I would think the Super 40 FM would be louder than the Magnaflow 14"...?
I have had Flowmaster on everything I have owned for many years but ONE Charger SRT that I had for like a year I put a FULL Magnaflow system on...way too quiet for my taste...I liked the idle and WOT but everything in between was about like stock...turned me off to Magnaflow for the next several vehicles...but my new truck on order, I am thinking to try either the 14" or the 18" - basically I want it to be slightly less noise than Flowmaster Super 40 I have currently...with a smoother more refined rumble that Magnaflow is known for...

So to those that have owned BOTH how does the 14" Magna compare to FM Super 40 sound volume wise??...(I understand the Magnaflow is less restrictive I have seen both mufflers cut in half)

Lets say stock volume is a 1...straight pipe/no mufflers is a 10...I would call the Super 40 setup a 7 to 8 personally...I'm looking for a 6 on this scale...if that makes sense...Would the 14" get me there? I really don't want to get the 18" in fear of it being too quiet like a 4. I have heard the 22" Magnaflow and I would call that a 2. More sound than stock...but barely noticeable.
