Default Is Dodge Louder Than The Rest???

I was talking to a buddy of mine yesterday at an exhaust shop, and he was telling me that with an aftermarket muffler or catback, Dodge Trucks are louder & more aggressive sounding than Fords & Chevy's. Basically, if you were to cut out the stock muffler on all three of these trucks, and put in the same aftermarket muffler in all three, the Dodge would be the loudest of them?

Anybody else heard this before? Any truth to it, and why would the Dodge's be louder?

My friends all have Chevys, Flowmaster and Magnaflow. I just recently installed a Flowmaster cat-back kit and they seem pretty jealous when they hear my truck ! Even when it had the stock exhaust people would ask me what kind of exhaust I had. It was pretty burly sounding stock and now puts them to shame ! I personally think that Dodges motors have a much better, deeper sound to begin with. And mine is the 4.7 but everyone thinks it's a Hemi just because of the deep great sound.

Of course. Dodge is the only brand to pay attention too. Everyone else is just white noise .... or did you mean the mufler?

The dodge motors move more air in and out, so it makes sense that the sound would be a little more stout!

This is definitely true. I had an 03 F150 with Flowmaster Super 40. It sounded like my Ram did with the factory muffler. Now I have the Ram with Super 44. Its 3X as loud and much more aggressive....no joke. I have some buddies that have Rams too. All much louder than any other truck with simple cat back systems.

I think Dodge designs their systems to be louder and more aggressive than everyone else's and then when we open it up with a free flowing exhaust it just makes that much more difference.

Ive had this conversation w/ my friends many a time. Even my die hard Ford Chubby and Yota friends say the one thing that everyone can agree on is Dodges always sound better period. My 4.7 stock had a nicer growl than my friends w/ 5.4s gotta love Mopars

And the 4.7 has a sound all of its own. I love the sound of my stock 4.7. It's the only thing stopping me from getting an aftermarket. I don't want to mess with the sound. I will eventually but I don't see the need to yet as it works and sounds just fine.

i agree on the dodge trucks being loud. its not just that theyre loud either its how they sound. I dont know about the newer ones but the older trucks sound less refined i guess u could say. I love it. The carbed 350's had a nice sound but all the newer chevy's sound more like passenger cars now.
