Exclamation Best Muffler for the Hemi

Hello fellow Ram lovers, trying to find out what muffler and crossover pipe sound the best for the 5.7 Hemi, I talked to someone at my highly recommended muffler shop about a 18 "Magnaflow and he said he could put it on but he has heard from other Ram owners who he installed it on that it sounds like crap when the cylinder deactivation kicks in. Like to hear from someone who has a good setup, was gonna go with the Magnaflow and new crossover for my 2 into 1 system with duals out but if the installer says it sounds like crap and he doesnt recommend it then I dont want to waste my money. Thank you all !

Most any exhaust probably isn't going to sound the best running on four cylinders. If it bothers you that much you could always get a tuner and turn the MDS off. That being said.....Magnaflow!

Just turn MDS off, you get the same gas mileage with it off. Just with the drone and ricy sound. That is confirmed on a 1400 mile round trip I did.

This is like asking what the best soda is... Or asking a 14 year old girl what the best Beaver song is.
