Default Best Performance Exhaust

I have a completely stock 2010 Ram with A 4.7 .... strictly from a Performance/HP/MPG stand point what is the best exhaust/muffler i can get and what size pipes are best for creating non resricting flow and sucking bad gasses out and pulling more air in to the motor ... im planning on leaving the stock cat... sound is second to performance

Probably the Flowmaster Series 40 or 50 will flow the best of all the mufflers with the possible exception of the Cherry Bomb.

Stick with the stock sized pipes because if you go too large, you'll end up losing low end torque and that's what moves the truck.

I just put a Flowmaster 40 on and saw the MPG increase. The sound is also awesome.

For your 4.7L I'd suggest one muffler. True duals won't help you and may even hurt the performance.

You can go with a single in and dual out muffler and have two tail pipes if ya want. That won't hurt the performance.
