Looks and sounds great! But you should really get rid of the black vinyl on the door pillars. Ever think about removing the resonators? It made my exhaust sound deeper.

I just got my X pipe installed in my truck last Wednesday and I have true dual flowmaster 50 series exhaust and I gotta say I love how the X pipe made a little deeper sound in it and I've notice a little more push on the line not much but better then nothin. All I need now for my exhaust is shorty headers lol.

I also had him put some kind of bracket on to avoid rattling in the future


I will definitely look into the X pipe

not to be an ahole but there is no way they are the same part number with having different inlets and outlets. They may both be the same size and series but not part number. The size and series is all that matters, the location of the inlets and outlets aren't going to hurt anything so its not a big deal.

I have a pair of the 50 deltas with an X pipe about 4-5 foot infront of them. I hope to swap them out later this week for some magnaflows.
Since I have no resonators I can get really bad drone. If the truck is under load and I don't kick down a gear it sounds like I have a pair of 55 gallon drums for mufflers.

I was told today by my local muffler mechanic that true duel exhaust isn't good for a HEMI motor. Is that true? I wanted to get true duels all the way but after he said that I decided on si/do package that I am having installed this Thursday 6/21/12. I will be making a video of the entire thing and the sound when it is done. The muffler guy said that he has some kind of special muffler that muffler shops can get that are like knock off flowmasters or magnaflow, etc. for roughly $350 includes parts/labor/installation. I get the funny feeling I am not getting the right kind of deal here but I got nothing to base that on. Any ideas from anyone here would be nice. See my video I did at and after the muffler shop visit:

depending on how it is set up you could lose a little low end with true duals. If it is done right and you have supporting mods you shouldn't lose anything.
The knock off is probably a Flo Pro. They make copies of both Flowmasters and Magnaflows. Personally I would rather have the real thing than a copy.
