i think that putting on a good Y pipe would be the best single mod that could be made, the factory Y is so flattened out, there has to be MAJOR restriction
I put on the 18" Magnaflow muffler in March of '09, truck had 700 miles on it, now i am thinking about changing out that Y pipe, truck now has 42,000 miles on it.

My Ram was in the shop last week for a cracked exhaust manifold on the right side
A month ago the drive shaft had to be replaced, it was coming apart internally

Funny how just after the 3 year, 36 month warranty ends, things started falling apart

The magnaflow exhaust also gives you 2.5 inch tale pipes instead of 2.1/4.

I've got the Magnaflow Y-pipe (10778) welded in with Mandrel bent 2.5" pipe
and the Magnaflow CatBack (16869), 22" Muffler, 2.5" Tail sections, no Resonators and Huge 5" Tips.

IMHO, the CatBack w/o reso's is as loud or louder than an 18" Magnaflow with stock pipes/resonators ...and no drone at all.




Very Happy with the Sound , Looks and Performance (13 second Truck)

...and If anyone thinks a 22" sounds stock, I beg to differ...

<click pic for video> and this is before the Y was installed

Timmy, did you get the Mag 12288 18" muffler and 10778 Y-Pipe? On autoanything.com right now and that's what it's looking like to me...

Matt

Already have that thread bookmarked.

Ordered the muffler, Y-pipe, K&N drop-in, and the 180 degree stat. Hoping it all gets here by the end of next week. I have a birthday coming up...
