Default Best Exhaust Systems for the Hemi?

Just as the title states. What are the best and why? HP/TQ Gains? Thanks.

I am a fan of Magnaflow on the Hemi. Full stainless steel construction, straight through design and a great sond to boot! Many options on sound without any power loss for being quieter

I agree Magnaflow or Gibson would be good.

Magnaflow for the sound, quality, warranty and price point.

Of course, you might like a different sound. I'd check out some sound clips of different systems either here or the mfgr's websites. We can't pick one for you based on sound.

I'm pretty sure if I do a catback, it will be the 16850 single tip exhaust from Magnaflow.

I was also gonna say intake/programmer/exhaust are the three basic, best bang for the buck mods. They are dependent on one another to reach their full potential.

I have a Gibson Super Truck with the tips cut and turned down. It can get a little annoying on the highway because it resonates and rattles my change. I didnt notice any significant gains but I never had it dynoed before and after. It sounds aggressive though, for city driving its great.
