In any case to get back on topic I am leaning toward the Vararam. Don't really like loud anyway

As for back pressure. if you lose anything it is pretty minimal and not noticeable.
Im pretty anal about these things and was not able to notice anything different.
if anything, the y pipe allows for the Hemi to breathe better as there is less restriction.
not sure if you have seen the stock Y. Its horrible!!

Yeah I've seen it. It is pretty bad. I was on the forum for the week or so I was debating buying the truck. Checked it out thorougly on a Sunday (No Salespeople) at the lot and compared it to what I had researched on here. I think the Varam will be first.( BT Catch Can already ordered). Then lowering after that not sure. Had about two weeks so far. Already debadged, blacked out Rams and window tint.

It's already in. I made the dealer throw in a plastic bedliner and they had me take it to an aftermarket place to get it. They gave me credit for the plastic one and I gpt the BR for $250. I am definitely going to do some pics if it ever stops raining. I just thought of something else too. The vehicles I have done exhaust and lost low end were all 335 0r 355 rears. With 410s it probably wouldn't be noticeable at all

4.10s is great!
But like I said, many, many, many members here swap out their mufflers and not anyone has complained about back pressure being lost or low end being lost too much.
Either way, you will enjoy the truck stock or modded.
Hope the later

Is the Vararam any louder that the stock setup? I want something that is louder. I always used to flip the air cleaner lid upside down on the 4 bbl carb. Loved that sound.
