Drone goes away if you just turn off the mds.

I run a 22" maggie and just went over the 237k mile mark today...I absolutely love to drive and I've run flow 50's as well 18" maggies (no resos)... couldn't stand the drone with either of the 2. I like to have conversations with my wife and 5 yr old. I still hear the rhythmic v8 sound and it is beautiful despite the fact that it is coming from a big body (5 x 11 x 22)...like said earlier, I do have dual cutouts (no cats an lt's) so it sounds downright nasty nascarish when I open them up...

Well I have had the 18M muffler since the fall and while I like the sound while I am getting on it, it really is quieter then i thought it was going to be. Been on 2 long trips with it and the drone was noticeable but not nearly unbearable. Conversations and Music were easily heard. At Idle and cruising around town there are times when you barely know it there. I will give it alittle longer but am starting to think I should have went the 14m route. We take this truck on a few highway trips a year with my 2 children in the back so that is the only thing worrying me about making the move to a 14 with more drone.

you like loud and you like drone and when I did a flow 50 and a magnaflow 18", that's what I got, just wait, it's only been 6 months but you will get tired and sick of the drone ...I wanted quiet incab and zero drone,that's why I went with a 22", because of my setup I can be louder than anything else except nhra and nascar, but only when I want it to be. For the most part I like sounding muscular and I take out any of the trucks that think loud means fast

I plan on giving it alittle more time, but the 18m is not nearly as loud as I have read others state on here. Have taken a few Highway trips so far and not one complaint or comment on the interior noise from my family. Would like to hear the 14m in person to see how much diffeent it really is from the 18m.

I stumbled upon your posting I regards to the Mufflex DOD18m and read through the whole thread. What is your final take on the sound level after breaking it in, and we're you ever able to find someone running the 14 that you were able to hear?

It is not much louder since new and actually seems a little quieter probably cause I am used to it now. I probably would have liked the 14" better but at this point it probably is not worth the cost to make that change unless I found someone selling a used 14" at a great price. The 18" is nice on highway trips but around town I could use a little more.

Cool thanks for the input. Most of my driving is around town with the exception of a half hour drive to my camper Ithe summer. Think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the 14.
