Default Replacement Muffler for stock system... worth it?

Hello everyone, I've got the single exhaust on my Ram, and wanted to know if I replaced the stock muffler with a Magnaflow or something if it would give me some more growl.... Eventually I want to replace the stock y-pipe and put a less restrictive one etc... Just want to know if anyone has done just the muffler, or if it's even worth it...

Thanks for the time guys, let me know what you think,.

Yes that'd be a good mod for both performance and sound...

I went with the 18" Magnaflow, i just wanted to hear a bit of noise
The 14" is something i would have done 8 years ago, it is a bit more aggressive

Cool beans, kinda think it's a pretty inexpensive mod for the nice sound you get out of it...and whatever small performance gains there are associated with more flow.

The performance gains from just a muffler swap will be negligable, the stock is fairly freeflowing, but once you do the y-pipe you'll see a much bigger (though still small) gain. The biggest benefit is actually having your truck sound like it has a set of cajones rather than being tuned to 'granny getting the groceries'.

just do the muffler swap you will actually lose power with the y pipe on a fairly stock engine.call magnaflow they will even advise you against the y pipe unless you plan on doing some internal engine mods and headers.
