The OEM muffler is a HUGE piece of garbage. It looks like a smoke stack for the titanic its so big.

He said people think just because it is louder it is more powerful. He has been doing this for a lot of years. So I do have to consider what he says. I'm just quoting him. No let her rip.

Here is the issue with your buddies statement. While he is correct that 2.5 is more than enough for our trucks and his 600hp chevy. I can assure you like previously posted that he is not using a stock OEM muffler or OEM cats/headers. I would be REALLY surprised to see him running cats period in a race car. PLUS I would almost bet that his exhaust is not taking the same path that was OEM on that chevy. Right? Its all about restricted airflow and thats what comes from OEM... restricted exhaust.

The previous statement about losing performance with an aftermarket exhaust. I find that hard to believe... what i would believe more of is them loving the sound of their exhaust and reving it more or them putting their foot into here and there to hear the sound. Thats more likely. Everyone is a victim to doing that. If we werent then why waist the money on the aftermarket part?

I have a Sport, it is much louder, but not too loud, just perfect. The sport has the aggressive sounding exhaust system, and the other is milder, ex Laramie with the dual rear exhaust, etc...Not sure what is the difference in parts one from another, underneath they look identical, cats, muffler, resonators.

My 2010 sport has a nice little growl to it. My neighbor has a 2010 Laramie and it's quiet.

There is a difference between the two.

Who has one of the Sport muffler, it will have part # 52122529AB stamped on the side of it? I want one.

The brochure said that the Sport has a more "aggressive" tone.
I thought mine sounded good, but installed an 18" magnaflow after a few months.
Two of my friends now have Rams that are stock. One is a Sport and the other a Big Horn. We have compared all three trucks sound levels over beers. The Big Horn is quiet and the Sport is louder. Maybe sometime I will get scientific and borrow a sound meter from work to compare the three trucks.

Mopar Performance says at 65MPH and slower the stock muffler is not restrictive to hamper MPG. Only at WOT does it become restrictive, but its not that bad for a stock tuned HEMI truck. They said the stock exhaust manifolds are the biggest restriction in the stock exhaust system. A open performance type muffler won't help that much, it just makes noise.
