Been done by many people. Replacing the muffler only changes the exhaust tone unless you go with a flow through design for performance.

Yes you can.

You can still run the y-pipe, it's the joint between the two mid-pipes from the headers. It's what joins the two exhaust banks from the engine before it runs into the single inlet of you muffler. If you had a dual in/dual out then you wouldn't need it, but that's more piping and fab work underneath.

I hope that helps.

I went through this last week....I bought a Magnaflow Y-pipe and a Flow Master 40 series and just walked into my local exhaust shop. On my phone I had taken a picture of the set up off a Google pic from my computer screen. The muffler tech was really impressed and just did what I asked.
First, I had him cut off everything 2"s below the cats, Then run new pipe all the way till the y-pipe was just below the transmission tail-housing. Then, straight to the muffler in "1" piece to the muffler. Where the OEM tail pipes were welded back on to the Flow Master.
Results, are WOW- F-ing WOW...the Hemi was dead before compared to now!
BTW, forgot to mention that I installed the Vararam Air Grabber CAI the day before the exhaust work. I have no tune or other mods. I also made a trip of about 125 miles 2 days ago, picked up 3 MPG at 70MPH!
I have tons of pics but I cannot get them to load as usual!

So the way I understand this is: from the Y, you had the piping over the tranny bracket replaced, and the straight pipe to the muffler as well....did you delete the resonators? How much did they charge you for the work and piping? You have me thinkin now Wrenchman!

I was up under my truck during my lunch break, and now have a good pic of what needs to be done......the stock Y is just before the tranny mount....cut the Y just after the cats, then weld 2 flow pipes over the mount to the Y now behind the mount....doesnt seem like a complicated project....gonna stop by the shop tomorrow and get a price....I'll post the numbers this weekend. Thanks again to everyone who responded.

Chrysler spends millions in pursuit of better mpg with elabrorate systems such as MDS to squeeze an extra 1/2 mpg. You just go and hack off the exhaust pipes and put them back on slightly different, with a different air cleaner and improve the trucks overall mileage by 3MPG. Wow...
