After a 1000 miles of driving my new Ram I decided to go into a local muffler shop to ask a few questions about replacing the muffler. Like everyone else considering this mod, I have wasted hours here on the forum researching the options before making the decision. I have decided to do a 22in Magnaflow SI/DO with a y pipe install.
The salesperson said that they had an 18in SI/DO magnaflow in stock and could do it for $175 OTD in about an hour. He said if its too loud I could come back and switch for a 22in. So I said lets do it!
Once they dis-assembled the stock system and before they welded in the new muffler I grabbed it to compare it with the stock muffler. I noticed that it didn't say Magnaflow anywhere on it. I asked the installer and he said something to the effect of "its just like a magnaflow, it will sound the same."
That is what pissed me off! Not only did they lie to me, but they tried to tell me it was the same thing. Of course I told them to KMA and got out of there as quickly as possible. Chances are that I would have been happy with the sound and probably never known the difference, but that's not what I asked for, and thats not what they sold me.
I wonder how often this kind of stuff happens.
