I have an 09 crew cab 4x4 Hemi (Big Horn Package) and I want more power!!!!

I've already installed a CAI and am happy with that mod.

I'm ready to move onto exhaust.

I've read so much and listened to the youtube videos but I can't come to any conclusive decision on what's best for me.

My list of priorities:
1) want more HP/Torque!!!
2) want improved gas mileage
3) better sound is gravy-that's an added bonus

I have their OEM dual setup-2 pipes/catalytic converters which flow into a single pipe into my muffler and then split after that to the two tailpipes.

Went to a local muffler shop and the guy was pushing flo-pro mufflers. He really couldn't answer my questions. Wasn't really impressed with the guy.

I've looked at the magnaflow catback system and have emailed magnaflow about it. They advise I'll get 12-15 HP by bolting on their system. IS THAT TRUE!!?!??

Not looking to go with headers-too expensive and too involved for me.

Anybody have any dyno results or real world numbers? PLEASE HELP!!

I want more power!
Welcome and be sure to check in on the Newbie board for an official welcome from everyone.

Onthe exhaust issue ... I have asked that same question. Everyone always seem to review exhaust based on sound and I would agree with you that sound is gravy. HP and MPG are the primary conserns. I've never heard of pro-flo so I can't help you there.

Whatever you figure out please let us know.

Mods: Thule Xsporter 422XT bed rack, Underrail Rhinolining, MOPAR class IV Hitch, DIY CAI, Aero Turbine 3030.
Future Mods/Wishlist: Tuner, Daystar Comfort Ride 1.5" Leveling kit, Nerf Bars, Police style push bumper with light guards, KC or Thule trail lights, HID projector lights.
