just picked up the Magnaflow CatBack (16869) for $520
If you have a bumper with dual cutouts It's THEE one to have.
I've had the same kit for almost a year now and it is Worth every penny!
I even sold my almost new dual take offs locally for $200
...so net cost is only around $300 for a DIY kit that takes less than an hour to install in the driveway.
The rear pipe sections are mandrel bent 2.5"
stainless steel, (stock pipes are only 2.25")
The kit includes a sweet sounding 22" SS muffler and new tail section that eliminates the stock resonators.
So it sounds about the same as an 18" with reso's.
The real bonus for sport owners though...
The Huge Double Walled Polished Stainless Steel Tips that finish it all off are not available seperately and come welded in place to the tail section.
To buy an equivellent quality tip would cost $100 or more...each
They make the puny stock tips look a like a complete joke!
Here's my Favorite combo...Magnaflow CatBack + Airaid intake + Diablo Trinity 93 Tune
Nice deep low rumble at idle, Hemi Roar at wide open throttle. <click for video>
In Cab WOT, with excessive tire spin

Highway Cruise @ 100km/h (60 mph), avg 22-23 mpg <click for video>
Performance? oh hell yeah , got that covered too (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Looks? Maggy's 5" Double Walled Polished Stainless Steel tips
vs little stock sport tips
I picked up a Magnaflow Y pipe yesterday for $27 to hold me over until I get my Headers...
My Bro's going to weld it in for me tomorrow
I guess I could have gone cheaper, but my Ram only gets the Best!
Best Sound, Best Performance, Best Fuel Economy AND Best Looks
... and no drone in-cab ...that's surely worth $300...right?
