surge8 is on a distinguished road
Default Magnaflow 12588 22"

Yesterday I got a package, today I installed her. I wasn't looking for anything crazy just something that screams when I stomp it but doesn't annoy me while driving around town. After much research on this board and youtube it seemed that the Magna 12588 was the way to go. After install and driving about 75 miles on it i must say I LOVE IT!!!! Its exactly what I hoped it would be. Deeper sound on start up and cruising and definitely screams on WOT. I am putting together a comparison video because i can not find one anywhere. I kept resonators which was a good choice because I did not want it too loud and I was afraid if removed it would not have been what I wanted.

Awesome! Thanks for the great video and I'm so happy that you like you 22" Maggy. I was just sooooo jealous to see the palm trees in the background... enjoy!

P.S: If possible add "video" to your thread title, you will get a lot more hits on this thread and it will be easier for other members to search... just don't want your hard work to go unnoticed

Can you explain if the 12588 requires extra pipe or hangers when installing ?

I'd like to buy the 22in magnaflow that comes ready to bolt in like the mufflex pkg but ithe only seems to have 14 18 and 24in.

Btw do you still like the 22 or do you wish u had the 18?
I really want to avoid drone on the hwy when mods is active.


Thanks.

22" is a good choice...I ran an 18" with no resonators and the drone became unbearable, if you run resos it might be ok...

I've got the same muffler and love it! Hope you did the Y pipe too, that really help the truck breath.

I see you live in Pembroke Pines, I live over in Davie.

Thanks for going through the trouble to put this together. I have been researching this topic since I bought my Ram about three weeks ago. I had about decided to go with the 18 Mufflex just so I could take it off and sell it if it was too loud. I just didn't want to spend $200 just for that convenience. There are not many videos out there on the 22 inch muffler and this one has made me reconsider my choice of going with the 18 inch Magnaflow. I will be putting in a Y-pipe at the same time. Also, as it ages it should get a little louder so I think this is a good route for me.

Thanks again,
Brad

Installed my 22 in Magnaflow last week. It seems quieter than my stock exhaust, but it's deeper and more refined. Even though it's quieter, I actually like it better.
