I think Crash addressed it.

Anyhow....

Below is a cellphone [My Droid] clip I uploaded to YouTube a couple of days ago of my exhaust.

Not the most accurate depiction as far as what I'm actually hearing everyday [sounds a little louder & throatier than what you hear] but it gives you an idea.

Default Transition Pipe Question

All - thanks for all this good information on exhaust mods. I am a beginner, so please pardon my ignorance. Seems like everyone is using the Magnaflow Tru-Y pipe with the Magnaflow (16869) Cat-Back, but is it possible to use a Tru-X pipe with the same Cat-Back? Seems to me that would increase all-around performance, but I am probably completely missing something. Any thoughts/comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

Below is a reply I posted on another forum.

It may help you.

Here's some information you may find usefull -

H Pipe:

An H pipe helps equalize the exhaust pressures between the two banks of tubing as the hot gases and sound waves travel down the tubing. This, in effect, relieves the exhaust pressures as they travel through the H tubing, generally creating an increase in torque. This will also give an added sound reduction when the sound waves combine inside the H tubing.

X Pipe:

An X pipe will actually help to scavenge exhaust pulses from one bank as the opposite exhaust pulse passes through the X, thus creating a vacuum effect at the valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. This generally equals added torque and, like the H pipe, a reduction in sound as the sound waves combine in the X pipe.

Y Pipe:

The Y pipe, which works well on several applications, utilizes a dual exhaust off the manifolds/ headers and runs back a specified distance, then the two pipes enter the Y pipe and become one larger pipe. This Y helps each bank to scavenge the other as the pulses travel down through the Y and are joined together into the single common tubing. This creates a vacuum in the exhaust valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. A sound reduction is also achieved as the sound waves combine in the Y pipe.

Personally, I've had both in the past and the biggest difference I've found between H & X pipe is predominantly sound. As long as all things are equal, there's no significant difference in performance between the two.

Anything other than that horrid OEM Y-pipe on the Rams is a gain IMHO.

I went with a Magnaflow 10778 Y-pipe.

Very happy.

Hope this helped.

Quick question, can I just get the muffler and y pipe and replace just those or is this system more beneficial, why would have to change the already existing dual exhaust from the muffler back?

you can def just remove and replace those 2. the factory pipe is stainless so no reason to get rid of it unless you are doing something custom like rerouting or whatever
