Default Flowmaster or Magnaflow?

OK, which of these will give the better performance on a Hemi? Also, I'm looking for a real deep throaty rumble, but I don't want to wake the dead. Which of these sounds better?

Steve

I prefer the Magnaflow systems. Nice deep rumble at cruise, not instrusive in the cab, does sound nice during acceleration too!

I've used Flowmasters and after a while, I got tired of the noise.

I have the Magnaflow (16700 kit). It has a deep tone, not too loud at all. When you step on it you can hear it.

I had a flowmaster on my old truck and loved it. I also had a flowmaster CAT put in when the old one went bad, that made it sound great.

Flowmaster makes the 50HD specifically for the HEMI. It's said to have a better rumble than stock, but isn't as loud as the either the 40's or the Super 44s.

check 'em out at the flowmaster website. I think they've got sound clips.

I had the Delta Flow 50 on my HEMI - sounded good at first, but sure got louder the longer I had the truck... I heard that was common with Flowmasters though.
