Default Y Pipe?

Opinions on changing the Y pipe while swapping the muffler on 2014 hemi? I know there is a lot of muffler info on the forum, but trying to figure out simply if changing the Y pipe while changing the muffler is good, bad, or indifferent.

Looking at Mangnflow 18, but my exhaust shop said they would dry fit a few different mufflers while I am there and let me pick what i like..so not sure. They recommended the Flowmaster 40 or 44?...

Main concern is no drone.

The Y pipe will not affect the sound. I did the mag. Y and 18" muffler, no drone, deeper tone, and not too much louder until you mash the pedal, and even then it's still pretty tame. I've been thinking about removing the resonators just for a tad bit more volume.

Thanks Baldielox! (Great name BTW!) Do you know if the Y pipe does anything performance wise?
This is the same setup I am looking at. Just want a little more sound. You know the exhaust is lame when your 15 YO daughter tells you your truck is too quiet!

The gains from the Y pipe weren't even noticeable. It's obvious that it flows better than the stock unit, but you won't notice any seat of the pants difference. I put it on because I already had the Y pipe laying around.

I heard a mag exhaust and it's quiet in my opinion. I went with muffler delete instead with y pipe. I like it more and more each day

Yes the Mags have a mellow deep tone to them, they're not very loud unless you go with the race bullets.

How is the sound when the MDS is activated on the truck? I have a friend at work that has a 2009 Hemi Ram with the MDS and he said right after he bought the truck he goy a Flowmaster catback system.

He said it sounded great at idle and at WOT, but when the MDS activated he said it sounded terrible and vibrated/droned terrible in the cab of the truck. He took it off within a week of buying it and put the stock system back on.

Yikes that sucks. Isn't there a way to disable the MDS? Do you have to get a tune or tuner to disable it?

I disagree that y pipe doesnt add a little drone. At least on mine 20" Maggy with Y pipe the Y pipe added a little drone around 1500- 1900 RPM. I did the exhaust first (two weeks before the y pipe). However the Y pipe doesnt drone when MDS kicks in. The Y pipe definately increases flow with maggy 20" muffler.

Not sure what you're hearing, but replacing a Y pipe with another Y pipe isn't going to change the sound unless your exhaust guy doesn't know how to weld.
