Default Exhaust system and MDS

I was checking on exhaust today and the guy at the shop warned me that it would sound "different" when it drops into ECO mode. Then I asked the guy at the truck shop where I ordered my n-fabs at and he said not to mess with it because it would sound funny when the MDS kicks in. So folks, whats experience say, the people with the actual hands on?

If you go with a short=loud muffler, or take the resonators off...the MDS is much more noticeable and can drive you crazy!!!! I have an 18" magnaflow muffler with the resonators left in and it sounds great!!!! It is most noticeable around 40-45 mph in eco mode

24" Magnaflow sounds exactly the same. Also, it really only sounds weird in the truck. Outside is hard to tell.

You can use a tuner to turn off MDS or shift to 5th to manually shut it off if your cruising the strip.
