Default Exhaust system??

Hello,

I am new to the Dodge Ram and really wanted to improve it. My first improvement I want is the exhaust system to make it loud. I don't want to do anything illegal in the state of Texas but I want to make it a lot louder. I just wanted some opinions and answers on a good exhaust system for my truck. A 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5.2 L V8 magnum engine 318. Any comments or opinions will be very much appreciated. Thanks a lot!

It all depends on whether or not you have to do emissions testing. If so, I'd suggest just doing it the redneck way; hacking the exhaust pipe off a foot or so downstream from the last 02 sensor, then just do a side dump ahead of the rear tire. The catalytic converter takes care of enough noise so it shouldn't be insanely loud, if you want you could throw a glass-pack on there too. If the side dump is too much noise, just omit it and let it exit under the truck, makes for a tad loud cabin, but hey, its free.
If you don't need to do any emissions, you could just cut the cat out and go duals with glasspacks. Don't forget the "X" or "H" pipes.

Those are just low budget ways, mind you, so y'know there's probably better sounding combinations, Mine's cut off after the o2 sensor, and I think it sounds fine, but that's just me.
