Check out Solo Performance. They have a cat back system that sounds good with limited drone. They also sell the Mach 40 series muffler by itself for a simple muffler swap if that's the route you decide to go.

Not to take this post away from the op , but I got a question. These aftermarket suppliers all say cat-back , but all it is , is a muffler and tailpipes.
On these 5.7 's, the cats are way up on the y-pipe. I was thinking of cutting the y-pipe down near the actual y (about 6-12 inches),and creating an actual true dual setup from there back.
Why would that void a warranty,and if so,where can I get info on why?
Sorry op ,now back to your question. Thanks

The only part of the warranty you'd lose by doing this is on the portion of the exhaust you removed.

You will lose power with duals though, unless you also install a crossover.

Well yeah, but the part you would buy is just the connector. Something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/FMY300250-FL...016092&vxp=mtr

+1 vote for the Magnaflow... catback exhaust + a y-pipe connector. The y-pipe connector gets majorly choked down in factory form. Do a search, there are a lot of people who have done the two of these and loved the results.

Oh, and more flow out allows more flow in. Make sure you do either a K&N drop in filter or a full cold air intake to get the best "butt dyno" results.
