Default Exhaust - What options do I have?

I've got a new 09' crew cab with the 5.7 Hemi and single exhaust pipe. What are my options as far as getting some more rumble out of the exhaust? Don't really want to break the bank, so I'm thinking of keeping the single pipe, but would consider switching out to duals. Thanks.

Hi All:
You don't need a complete system just a Mufflex muffler. It is a bolt in 1/2 - 3/4 hour install. I got the 18" one and it sounds great. Try Mufflex.com or BSMexhaust.com. I got mine from BSM for $259 shipped. Read the info from either site and decide if you want to spend $800+ or $260 for a much better sound.

Two things... What does MBRP stand for? As for the bolt on, does the stock muffler need to be cut off, or is it an easy un-bolt/ bolt on scenerio? Sorry guys, I'm new to modding.

The stock muffler does not need to be cut off. Just check the web sites and there is instructions.

Thanks, although I can't find the instructions on BSM's site. Any chance you could post a sound clip of what your's sounds like?

Found it. Like the sound of the 14", but it may be a tad too loud. How much quieter is the 18" do you think? The site says if the stock muffler is 2/10, 14" is a 9/10, and the 18" is a 7/10. Would you say this is pretty accurate?

I did read in another post that with the factory resonater and muffler removed, the sound was not much louder than stock. The 18" uses the factory resonator, so is there much difference than the stock sound?

My '09 had a muffler AND a resonator (both heavy). With the Mufflex did you remove both and replace it with just the muffler?

Also, the MBRP (don't know what it stands for - they have a website) was less than $400 including shipping and it's a complete stainless steel cat back system.
