Default Mega Cab muffler?

I've been thinking of replacing my stock muffler on my 07 Mega Cab 1500. So I was wondering what muffler will give me the best low end and possible mpg gains? I was looking at the Flowmasters and Cherry Bomb Extreme mufflers. Any other suggestions or opinions would be great.

The aero turbines sound good, but I don't know what kind of gains you get. I am considering it.

I'd be interested as well. I just negotiated a deal on a 2007 1500 MegaCab. Since the muffler is under the rear portion of the cab, I'm a little concerned about too much noise in the cabin.

Search You Tube for sound bytes. There's tons of them on there.

I'm pretty sure what it will sound like outside the cabin...I'm more concerned with sound inside the cabin.

It's always so hard to pick an exhaust.

My recommendation is the Borla. I love mine, good sound and little in-cab drone.

I'm really considering Corsa sport exhaust for my 07' mega. I've been listening to a lot of sound cuts for the past 3-4 months and am still having a hard time deciding lol.

That's a nice catback Scat has for sale.

Most systems require a bit of lengthening to fit the MegaCab. For instance, the Borla & Gibson systems for the crew cab (didn't find a MegaCab system listed and emailed Borla to find out) just needs a bit of pipe added to the muffler inlet to make sure the tips go back far enough. Any good shop can do that.
