Default Mufflex installed.

Just installed the 14" Magnaflow Mufflex retro kit on my 2009. It went very well, the biggest pain was muscling the old muffler off after a winter up here in the north east. It took about an hour, I worked slow and took my time, used lots of WD40. I installed it paying close attention to the instructions and the info I learned here on the forum. Every thing lined up very well. I had no problem with leaking at the outlets like many have experienced. I did however have a small leak at the inlet. I got a really big ratchet with a deep socket from my neighbor and cranked some more. The leak seems to be gone now.
The sound is excellent, sounds like a HEMI should. In my opinion the 14 is not that much louder than stock, just enough. I will wait a while and see if it gets louder like many have reported.
All in all a very nice product, and if I can install it...any one can!! I would put a video up, but it would sound just like the dozens of other ones out there, so I wont waste your guys time!

What does it sound like when the MDS kicks in? I'm afraid that it will sound like a sick cow or one of those Honda's w/coffee can muffler when the MDS cuts of the cylinders.....

Sorry, I put a 40 Series FM on my dad's. When the MDS kicks in, no real difference. It goes quiet, but not what I was afraid it would sound like. I thought it might sound like a rice-burner car, too. It just goes quiet. Once you give it gas, back to good old loud!

I also have the 14" on my 2010 Laramie and I think it sounds great. When the MDS kicks in on mine it kind of sounds similiar to a diesel engine. Its been about 3 months since I installed mine and its nice and broke in and sounds awesome.
