Is 2008 3rd gen? I thought 3rd gen's didnt have MDS...

My truck came with a flowmaster and the drone killed me ever day I drove it. I ended up replacing with a huge SI/SO magnaflow and that helped a ton! I still get drone when im going fast, 70+mph, however it sounds pretty nice actually. I was told by an expert here to also have them dump the exhaust over the rear axel to help with the drone more.

Good luck.

Hey Eric,
I tried to send you an email but I got a message delivery failed notice.

I am interested in what kind of options you have. Tuner is the direction I would like to go first but it all comes down to the money.

2006-2008 = MDS

IMO SLOWmasters always sound bad.
Disgusting sound for little to no or even negative performance gain
Ok I'm done hating on flowmaster

I have the super 44, Single in/ single out.. with resonator delete and the diablo tuner, and actually dont mind the MDS drone... I do turn it off once in a while with my trinity tuner, but usually just leave it on as it doesn't bother me. But your best solution to turn it off would be to get a tuner with the capability of turning off MDS.

to each their own. That's the beauty of it. I get compliments on my FM 40 exhaust all the time. It's not obnoxious and doesn't sound "redneck"or whatever people say.

plus my truck is a truck, didn't buy it for performance. I bought it to **** shit up in and get me where I want to go. I to this day don't understand what people mean by drone. If they mean I can still hear my exhaust note while going down the highway? then sure...it "drones" but that's the point..i want to be able to hear it...that's why I paid $500 for custom exhaust.

there are some other good sounding set ups for the hemis though...but ive always had flowmaster and always get compliments on how nice it sounds. My buddy heard another members truck here in person that had maggies and he thought it sounded like shit compared to my truck. When he got on it on the highway he said it sounded horrible. but..everyone's ears are different.

I'll keep reppin Flowmaster any day

Amennnnn.

It's a truck, not a sportscar.. especially with M/T's on. Maggies have an alright sound if its the right muffler.. But they are far too quiet... I like to be heard 3 miles away .. Everyone loves the sound of my exhaust and never heard a bad thing.. Except my one friend saying it sounded sort of like a done up 5.0L mustang

x2

I have flow 44s too and the MDS doesn't bother me. I can feel when it kicks in and out but I rarely can tell if I listen to the exhaust. Never sounds bad to me..


and flowmaster, magnaflow, dynomax etc. They wont net lots of HP. Maybe a few here and there but cars/trucks now days. Stock is far from restrictive.

Drone is like a cab vibrating dull echo sound, its just annoying, not even really a exhaust sound, my silverado had it BAD with a knock off flowmaster i had on it. Cut the muffler off and it was louder outside, but accually quieter inside at lower rpms. Lol
