Another review for this thread...
Installed Y pipe and 18" Magnaflow yesterday. Deeper idle but not loud. Great sound on the throttle. Not super loud but exactly what I was after. And in a few months it will break in and be a small bit deeper/louder. Happy with what I chose. I think the 14" would have been more than I wanted for the new truck. There is some interior resonance but its not as bad as my Flowmaster setup was on my prior truck. I would say the 18" is right between stock sound volume and loud. Say on 1 to 10 scale - stock would be a 2. This 18" setup would be a 4 maybe a 5 once broken in. Flowmaster super 40 setup would be a 7. Straight pipes a 10.
Installer cut the pipe right behind cats and ran pipes back several feet. Then merged them with the Y in front of the muffler which he placed on the back side of where the big stocker was. Then stock from there back. Need to adjust the tips back a bit to be flush with the bumper but like what we did otherwise.
