muffler shops here will not install anything other than the 50 series flowmaster on hemis. they say that is the only muffler they are allowed to install on them.

That's one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Every single shop told you this? I know that some of the mufflers don't sound good when the MDS kicks in but there are a lot of hemi rams that don't have the MDS so don't have to worry about this.

Yes and I don't not like it. I have a 09 hemi that I put a vortex ch bomb on. Sounds great at idle but horrible between 3000 and 4000 rpm. sounds like a v6, really high pitch. I would say stay with what's proven now I love my super 44 flow

How would a muffler shop even know what your running unless you tell them you had the Hemi with the MDS or not, unless you told them in some way.

If 2 Rams were to pull into the same shop, 1 being a 1500, the other being a 2500, both were de-badged. Both only wanted a muffler, he would have no reason to pop the hood.
Unless all that particular shop sold was 1 brand of muffler, he would have to give you what you wanted, wouldn't they?

I called up cherry bomb and talked to one of their techs. The vortex muffler is actually one of their best flowing mufflers. I was gonna go with the extreme but it is extremely loud. I think I'm gonna go with the vortex cat back system but I'm still undecided. I saw on youtube the vortex vs a competitors muffler (flowmaster) on a flow bench and the vortex flowed more. They didn't say it was a flowmaster or what kind but you can tell by looking at it.
