I just about had a local shop swap the stock muffler with a Flowmaster 40 for $275 installed today, but decided against it to do some more research. I'm not quite sure if I've decided on a muffler yet. Unlike many, I like a little bit of drone on the highway. I want to be able to hear the exhaust but still want to be able to have a normal-tone conversation. I read where someone mentioned installing a X pipe after the cats, into the aftermarket muffler, and keeping the tail end of the exhaust the same with each factory resonator on each side before the exhaust tips. Can anyone tell me where I can find such X pipe and how much would one cost me? Something like this perhaps? http://www.autoaccessoriesgarage.com...rob-X-Pipe-Kit
My brother put a SLP Loudmouth resonator we had laying around the yard on his 04 Ram and it sounded amazing. Was louder than Magnaflow, but not too loud, and sounded great at WOT and cruising down the highway. I think that's close to what I want to do, put something similar to straight pipe, like a glass pack or maybe a Cherry bomb. Just want something louder than stock at idle & WOT, and has a deep muscle tone to it. Keeping exhaust manifolds, cats, and factory resonators. Any suggestions?
