New Mod!!! Today the Mufflex Muffler System showed up! I purchased the 14" or "agressive" model as I was well used to a loud vehicle with my Challenger R/T.

Install was easy and took about an hour with ramps on my garage floor. I started late so I will update with an "after" video tomorrow. None the less here is the "before" version of the 2011 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi with the factory DUAL exhaust.

The before sounds good so I bet the after is going to sound mean.

After finally sitting down tonight to sift thru 200 emails I got today at work I got some exciting updates and am looking forward to the next few days.

My HUSKY floor mats have shipped and are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I ordered the type that are countoured right to my model and year of truck so these should be great for the Michigan seasons.

The interior Carbon Fiber dash kit will ship from Remin on Thursday!!

And finally the Dark Charcoal Dual Ralleye stripe kit should be cut and shipped no later than Thursday as well. I found it impossible to find a dual stripe kit that went from bumper to bumper for some reason. While several vendors had kits for the hood and rear gate, full kits just were not available. Working with a favorite vendor that did my Challenger I took lots of measurements and will be the testor for a new kit they are custom cutting for me.

Stay tuned!!!!

PS> Looking at Recon tail lights and possibly doing halos much like I had done on my Challenger as well. So far my wife is tolerating this activity very well so I have to act while it's ripe.

Eric

Hi Guys!

Sorry for the delay in posting a follow-up! The exhaust is done and as I mentioned previously I installed the 14" "agressive" Mufflex model on my 2011 Ram QC Hemi Sport with the factory dual exhaust.

Warning...I didn't spend any time editing these videos my wife took for me. Just left them raw to demonstrate the differences.

Before the change as stock:

http://youtu.be/xAPXJGN0xGQ

And then a couple different short vids of after the install:

http://youtu.be/NRXCGHwJLPI
http://youtu.be/p48o5Vz9C7w
http://youtu.be/pLjhuTFYjeI


Honestly the video on my iPhone doesn't do it justice because it is MUCH louder live in person and there is a HUGE difference from stock. It isn't overly agressive and has no drone in the cabin. When stock you don't really hear the exhaust in the cabin at all and the noise upon acceleration is all engine noise. After the change you clearly and loudly hear the exhaust note in the cabin but it doesn't overpower you or the radio.

Long story short a great mod I am very happy with. While not even a fraction as loud as my Challenger was I like it. At some point I may still try it without the resonators.

Eric

Forgot a couple things...

I also received my Husky floor liners last week and got them in the truck. I really like them and am quite impressed with just how well the fit the shape and contours of the floor in front and back.

Today my complete Remin Dash Kit in Carbon Fiber showed up. I got the entire interior set which is three individual part numbers so there are a ton of pieces. I will start that install tomorrow after work!!

My vendor is also cutting my Ralleye stripes this week so I am hoping to install them this weekend if it is warm enough.

Eric

I ordered direct and it was $236 plus shipping as I recall. Really a good way to go. Mufflex performance simply takes a Magnaflow muffler and welds on the tail pipe side pipes in the correct bend and length to directly replace the factory muffler. It is not a Mufflex muffler but rather a stainless Magnaflow. Given these trucks already have stainless exhaust systems this is really agreat way to go in lieu of replacing the whole system.
