Default Borla, Magnaflow, Flowmaster, Corsa, MBRP?

All these companies carry an exhaust for our trucks, and my 2005 HEMI SPORT QC 4x4. The question I have, and what I am needing to know... is where do I find one that included the flare for the drivers side, with the notch for the exhaust to pass by behind the rear wheel? The truck came factory with a nice 3.5" stainless tip, but does not have the nice rumble sound I am looking for. I was told Borla made a kit that was offered and had this part, but is unconfirmed by them... saying only that maybe mopar added it. While I talked to the dealer, they had no clue if this was carried for the Hemi Sport, and Daytona models.. as both have the same flare package around the truck. If anyone can shed some insight on this, that would be great... as I am trying to find the kit to put on my truck... The prices are basically from lowest to highest,.. Flowmaster, Magnaflow, MBRP, Corsa, Borla...

I guess I should really just ask, where can I find an exhaust kit cheap? I'm looking specifically for the Borla at this point, since Magnaflow doesn't make a dual rear side exit for my truck. The lowest I could find was $670usd plus shipping... anything around here is $890cdn, not installed either... and I know a Flowmaster setup only runs $550 installed!

You can get just the muffler and have a shop custom bend the pipe. I'm sure it would be cheaper then that.

Or, just chop out the stock muffler and replace it with the muffler of choice, reusing the rest of your pipes so you don't have to mess with finding something that fits or bending new pipe to fit.

I have always had muffler shops custom bend the exhaust, It always has come out great and cheaper than what you are talking about. Call around to small shops near you and ask them for prices.

Well, I guess the problem there is... getting a T304 stainless system mandrel bent at 3" back, with hangers in place to hook onto stock locations.. there aren't many shops that can do that, so theres the reason I was going to go with a Borla.... but cannot believe the price of one!
