For sure, just swap the muffler. I swapped mine for a flowmaster 40 and it sounds and performs way better than stock IMHO.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Never heard of this??

Hmm anyhow...I got a cherry bomb vortex muffler and magna flow y pipe installed last week. It sounds amazing. No drone while cruising at any speed and peace is disturbed at WOT.

FYI...I felt the rear end get loose through second at WOT...that did not happen while stock.

Research, research, research...then make up your mind.

Happy modding!

ya i've been Googling like crazy, for now I just want to do a muffler, and that mufflex one sounds like it'll be right up my alley... Thanks for heads up on the y-pipe, engine mods etc will probably be a little down the road, as I've got a little one on the way in less than a month and my money is being saved for that... but $300 bucks ain't so bad and doesn't leave a hole in my wallet that Headers, y-pipe, custom exhaust would.

I only paid $105 for my 18" Magnaflow. No where near $300.

There are no headers or tuners yet for the 2012's anyway...

Seriously a Magnaflow Y pipe is 27 dollars. Get that and a muffler...research a muffler that flows well.

yea thats a good idea buy the y pipe because it is only 27 dollars your truck will lose power.the exhaust company that makes the pipe recommends against putting it on truck unless engine mods are done.sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.but its only 27 dollars

Here ya go Turk...

Directly from Magnaflows website describing it's Y-pipes

"TRU-Y PIPE TRANSITIONS
MagnaFlow's stamped Y-Pipe transitions are ideal if you're looking to design your exhaust for a single inlet,dual outlet set up. Made of stainless steel, these Y-Pipes offer a gentler radius that allows for better balance between cylinder banks and consistent flow in tight constrained areas."

Hmmm...I did not lose any power at all. I feel good about replacing the horribly restrictive piping that came from the factory.

I am pretty sure anyone looking to do some more (serious) work on their motor, i.e., cam, pro charger, heads, tune, spray, headers, etc...would do a true dual exhaust system anyways.

I do not think adding a less restrictive y-pipe can be considered to much of a good thing...but it's 27 dollars!

I did the Magnaflow 18" and the Express has the duals, nice rumble and with the K&N drop in filter the MDS comes on more often and I can give it more throttle before the MDS goes off. Enjoy your RAM!

I had flowmaster, didn't like it...so I had it cut off and currently have no muffler, just the two resonators...don't like it either. lol. I guess a 14'' magnaflow will be next.

I have a 18" magnaflow with resonators cut off. I think its perfect.
Not crazy loud on idle but WOT its really aggresive and there is barely a drone in the cab.
