I have Thrush Turbo Tubes on my older GMC, They are like a high-end glass pack that have incredible sound ! My dodge is straight-piped single exhaust. Good tone but not all that loud.

I have a Flowmaster American Thunder cat-back, absolutely love it. Not so loud that the people in my neighborhood want to lynch me, but very throaty, great rumble and converted from a single pipe out the back to a dual. Install was easy as can be, no drilling required, Flowmaster sent a bracket that adapts to a pre-existing hole in the frame on the drivers side for the second tube. Well-made kit. Got it from Auto-Anything, and they had it at my door in 48 hours. Highly recommended.

sticking with magnaflow in general (not specifying whether 14, 18, or 24...that is all preference...but I like the deeper/louder 14). I think flowmaster is too raspy.

I went with a Corsa catback; quiet on the highway, but loud and muscular when you get on it. Plus no drone at any speed. Corsa may make a simple replacement muffler, as well.

Best for me is the Dynomax Super Turbo for quietness, then open the cutout when i need some decibel.

Get a set of LT headers.
They dont make them for a 2500 Hemi.
But I just sold my set to a guy who hasnt installed them yet.
He might sell them.
They came off a 2003-2500 hemi ram.
PM me if you like.
