Default DynoMax VT Muffler

Ive spent the last 3 weeks weighing my options on different types, brands, and sizes of mufflers. Ive read all the threads regarding flow, back pressure, sound, loudness, and drone. After much research, Ive landed on the DynoMax VT Muffler Model # 17963.

Here is a link to their website for more information:
http://www.dynomax.com/mufflers.php?muffler=vt

I just ordered if from JEGS today, and it should be here next week. I will try to have it installed next week sometime as well, most likely Friday afternoon.

The reason I went with this muffler is the new "no-drone" technology. I hope that it works as well as advertised.

Has anyone else owned or heard a truck with this muffler? If so, chime in. Id like to hear your opinons.

Looks like a pretty nice design. Some cars come with a similar setup stock (corvettes).

I was really interested in going with this muffler when I was researching to do mine. I was afraid how the valve would work inside of it switching between the different pressures of MDS activated or not. I can't wait to see how it sounds though. Nice pick. Will be watching to hear it!

I just got the VT yesterday. I am taking it to the muffler shop on Friday afternoon to have it installed. Ive decided I am going to leave the factory Y-Pipe and just swap out the mufflers. I took the VT out of the box last night and looked it over. It is very similar to the Magnaflows in how it is built. The only really visable difference is the Valve inside the muffler that opens and closes as exhaust pressure rises and falls. I really hope this muffler sounds like I want it to. It has a 90 Day warranty, so if something goes wrong, or I hate it, I can always get my money back and go with the Magnaflow.

Smile DynoMax VT Installed!

This afternoon I got the DynoMax VT Muffler Installed. I only did a direct muffler swap from the stock 26" monster to the new 22" sleek DynoMax.

Here are some comparisons between the two mufflers.

And here is a picture of the final product.

Dynomax VT Installed.jpg

The DynoMax VT sounds great compared to the stock muffler. It will not wow people and turn heads in parking lots, but it did make a huge difference. I assume that it will get a little louder after it has a couple hundred miles to burn in. On start up it has a nice low growl, and at WOT it really screams. However, the reason I purchased this particular muffler is to be able to drive at highway speeds and not be droned to death. This muffler performs exactly as advertised. Highway cruising, even with MDS on, sounds exactly like stock. The value in this muffler really works to eliminate all drone associated with similar mufflers. I couldn't be more happy with that fact. I do wish it had a little more aggressiveness at start up and idle, but you cant have that and no-drone on the highway.

The throttle response is noticeably quicker and more responsive. I really didn't expect that from a simple muffler swap, but its a nice perk.

I took some before video, and tomorrow I plan to take the after video. I plan to make a post in the near future with much more content. Stay posted.

I'm anxiously awaiting the videos. Still deciding on a muffler for myself.
