Default Best Muffler??

OK, I went on Youtube and listened to the sound clips of the various muffler mods guys have put on their 5.7 Hemi Rams but honestly it's hard to tell what they really sound like so I thought to ask the group.

I'm looking for a muffler that will increase the sound of course but won't be obnoxious and drone in the cab. Also, I don't want to lose torque with something too free flowing...any ideas?

Magnaflow is one of my faves. Great sound, great price, good warranty, don't drive you out of the cabin.

Magnaflow is one of the few that doesn't have an annoying sound when the MDS kicks in either.

I was watching Horsepower TV the other weekend and they were doing some testing on the Cherry Bomb mufflers. I would suggest taking a look at the Vortex (I think) by Cherry Bomb. It makes good power and sound, the best of the two. It makes more power than the Glasspack they have but it is queiter.

Also take a look at Gibson mufflers. They make some really good mufflers. If you take a look on their website at the picture it shows they have some great flow. It looks a lot better than most other mufflers (Magnaflow and Flowmaster) from the pics on their websites. Also I have a Gibson exhaust and it sounds great!

How about this for a question? What muffler makes the best HP? Forget about sound I wanna know whats gonna flow the best besides open headers. So far Ive looked at Magnaflow, Flowmaster, Gibson, AFE, Dynomax, Borla, and Corsa and hav'nt really found an answer...

your then going from 3" in to 5" out basically
