Default Best Exhaust Options

So here is the scoop. I just received the following to bolt onto my 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Limited:

S&B CAI
Moe's Performance 87mm ported throttle body
Billet Tech catch can

I want to get a tune from Hemifever, but want to replace the exhaust before I get the tune. Where I am really struggling is with the type of exhaust to install. Borla is obviously a fantastic product, but is is also pricey. I have heard promising feedback on several other brands including Gibson and Flowmaster.

I have dual exhaust now and want to keep the same look. I have also heard nightmares about resonance and drone issues with some exhaust systems.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Dude, I'm ordering the Magnaflow 16869 catback with the 5" tips as well as ARH long tube headers. And I'm also getting a ported 87mm TB.

Do a search here on the hemi performance exhaust forum for : Magnaflow 16869

Tons of good material to be found. I just spent an hr reading it all. Check out Grubrunner's excellent writeup.


Cheers,

Var

I have to agree with RAM357. I spent some time trying to decide which exhaust would be best for what I want and stumbled across Grubrunner's review, as well as several others he has done. Very informative and was able to answer all my questions to help me make to right decision for me.

if you are just looking for more sound just change the muffler. that is what I did. get the one you want, make sure it is single in and dual out cause these are not true duals. had my local muffler shop put it. they had to put a chunk of pipe on the inlet side cause original muffler is sooo long. had it done in about an hour and cost me like 120 bucks plus the cost of your muffler choice. great sound and a great price depending what you are looking for. I left the rear resonators on. with my 08 challenger I had them removed and it had more drone which I don't really mind but I knew the truck would see more work and I wanted a bit less noise around town. still sounds amazing though. I have 150 into ram exhaust and love it. I did get one heck of a deal on the muffler though. good luck with your mods.

Thanks for the reply. Think I will go with the Magnaflow. I noticed that others sold their stock exhausts on other posts. Any ideas on how to get a couple extra bucks for my stock pipes as they have less than 10,000 miles on them.

Anyone know where to get the additional pipe that Grubrunner was talking about late in his thread with the horrid crimps? Is it something my installer can easily fab?

Talk to Andrew (FastnUgly @ BP) here and he'll set you up. I'm getting my system from him, and it will include the Y pipe. No more mashed BS exhaust

Cheers,

Definitely Email Bully's for a price!

Secondly I sold my stock cat-back after a few weeks on Kijiji for $150. I asked the guy at the shop to chop it off 4 inches before the stock muffler so the next guy will have something to attach to.

If $$$ are a concern you can always just get a muffler and have your local shop make you new tail pipes. (that's what I did since shipping to northern BC was insane.) If this is something you are considering the muffler that comes in the Magnaflow Kit is 5x11x22 and its part number is 12588.

I wouldn't just give away the original muffler either. they may not be worth much now but sooner or later people will need a new one and that will be the time get some money back out of it
