Default Exhaust Question

What you guys think about swapping the muffler for a y pipe? I have a flowmaster 40 on there now....it sounds pretty good....but i want a more aggressive sound....
Any suggestions?

I am considering doing the same, after installing some JBA Headers and replacing the stock Y with the Magnaflow Y it is just too quiet for my liking so I am considering getting rid of my 40 series FM as well as the Y and just running dual straight pipes.

MODS LIST! JBA Shorty Headers, Magnaflow Y Pipe, RC 3.75 Combo lift, 35x12.50 MTs, Truxedo Rollup Tonneau, Rhino Lining, Rampage LED Light Bar, Westin Bull Bar, Chrome Mirror Covers, FM 40 Series, Bushwacker Color Matched Fender Flares, Hypertech Calibrator, Airaid TBS, K&N 63 CAI, Mopar RAM Slush Mats, Westin Step Bars

The y pipe wont add anything to the sound factor, but will supposedly more freedom for air to pass through as the stock Y is pinched.
But I would still do it

The Mag Y is just fine, it shouldnt cost you more than 50-75 bucks at a local muffler shop with install unless you know someone then it might be a little less....Don't delete the resonators though as it causes a nasty drone from the MDS when you are in "eco" mode.

The day after I bought my 2012 QC I took it to the muffler shop and had them swap the stock muffler for a 40 seres flowmaster. I think the sound is very aggressive with a deep growl. I think it is perfect. Something you might want to try is instead of running a single muffler go to true duels and run two mufflers.

Before I have the truck I have now, I had a 2010 Ram with the 4.7L. I ran "true" duals from the cats to glasspacks and out the back. No resonators.

I am thinking about running the same setup as before on my 2012 5.7, the sound was really aggresive and throaty. They key though is to get rid of the y pipe, and just go true dual.
