Default FLOWMASTER 50 series vs Cherry bomb vortex

I was going to do the exhaust on my 08 Ram 4.7 quad cab. I was recommended either the Flowmaster 50 series or the Cherry bomb vortex. I wanted to do the Flowmaster but the cherry bomb was suggested. I'm looking for a real nice rumble...... What do you guys think?

I had the 50 series Delta Flow on my 2004 HEMI. Nice rumble, a tad quiet in the cab at first, but after almost two years, the drone became pretty rough inside. Been looking at the Cherry Bomb mufflers a lot lately, but now leaning towards Zoomers.

Just did a cat back Flowmaster dual kit on my 06 HEMI quad cab last month. It came with the 50 series muffler. It sounds great with my cold air intake. It gives a nice deep bark when you turn the key, and settles down to a quiet burble at idle. Driving is a joy. Punch it and the whole truck roars like a T-rex, but settles down nicely at highway speed. Sometimes I getsome odd exhaust notes in the 35 to 50mph range, I also get an odd sounding pop when the MDS kicks in, but it is well worth it. The only 2 problems I have run into are a clearnce issue with the spare, so I had to loosen up the clamps and adjust the pipes around a bit before I got it welded up, and the other problem is that my milage has gone to poo, because I always have my foot in it. I will post some video with some sound samples for you if you would like. I am very happy with the Flowmasters. Removing the stock exhaust was the hardest most time consuming part of the install.

Well the cherrybomb vortex flows 600 cfm you'd be hard pressed to get that out of a flowmaster. So if sound is all your after go with the FM50 but if ya want good sound and performance I would go with cherrybomb vortex.
