Default Exhaust Help

I have an 2011 Big Horn with the dual exhaust and while i think it sounds good stock i want to make it louder. I'm pretty sure i want to put a magnaflow in but my question is since i already have the dual exhaust can i just put in a new muffler or do i have to go with a cat back system. Any help or tips would be great thanks a lot. John

Try a Magnaflow 18". Also change the stock "Y" pipe at the same time. It will give you a little more sound without being "loud".

You'll be Very Happy I'm sure!

You maybe pay a little more $$$ up front, but its all new parts with a lifetime warranty and huge 5" Tips
....AND you can DIY install so you're not paying $100/hr labor to some midas hack.

Throw your new take-offs up on Craigslist for a couple hundred and you're going to have a Badd-Ass setup for $300.

Post up pic's and a vid when you get er' done


The Y pipe doesn't really add a noticeable change in sound or performance unless your entire system is already tuned and tweaked to peak efficiency/performance.

So leave that til later, once tuning come out for the 11's
