Oh man... I have about a dozen different setups on my Dakota. Here are the prominent ones.
Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Dakota Sport
Engine: Magnum 5.2 V8
Modifications: No engine modifications. After the Cat, there is a y-pipe and 2 straight pipes.
Exhaust 1 rating: 7/10 - not as loud as you would think.
Modifications: No engine modifications. After the Cat, the straight pipes were removed, so it dumped right after the cat.
Exhaust 2 rating: 7/10 - I liked it better than before, but resonance was loud due to dumped exhaust.
This video is with my bad TCM. You can hear the exhaust nonetheless
Modifications: Custom BFI for the Dakota. Doug Thorley 3" Catback installed.
Exhaust 3 rating: 6/10 - Par... it was put in so I at least had exhaust that exited NOT under the bad this time.
