So starquestbd22, according to you what you felt, the magnaflow muffler showed more power gains when compared to the flowmaster? Hmm... I wonder.. Is there a difference in muffler design between both? I should say: Is the difference in design that much greater or unique that one actually made enough power so that it could be felt by the driver??

flowmaster is a baffled/chambered design, magnaflow is a straight through design. magnaflow will make more power than flowmaster.

^^^^^ What he said. Maybe this will help.





The chambers in the Flowmasters give them that distinct "hollow" sound that FM fans love. Magnaflows don't really have that...in my experience the Magnaflow was deeper and had more bass to it.

Like I said above...the power difference wasn't night and day or anything but I did notice it. The truck would pull longer up a hill before having to downshift and just seemed to not have to work as hard to get around. I feel like I should add a disclaimer, lol. "Results may vary!!!" But I am a Magnaflow convert. The FM duals on my hemi sound pretty good but I think about what it will be like after I get the MF on it everyday.

starquestbd22. Its ok. Don't worry about the disclaimer. It's not like it was a dyno pull or something like that. Just a simple on seat and foot to accelerator difference that could have been affected by other things including ambient temperature, weather, tire pressure and the like. LOL.

After running it for about a year I had the Flowmaster removed and welded in a Magnaflow oval 18" muffler....the rest of the exhaust remained stock. I can honestly say that I felt a small increase in low end pull on the seat of the pants meter. It wasn't huge or anything but I noticed it. The best way I know to describe it is that the truck seemed happier, lol. As a bonus I also picked up about 1 MPG or so. The 2004 hemi I have now had a Flowmaster when I bought it but I will be replacing it with a Magnaflow muffler and y-pipe when I get the coin. I don't have any experience with the y-pipe yet but if you crawl under there and look at the stock one you will see it is extremely restrictive. Hope this helps.
good advice! thankyou
