Default 2010 Ram exhaust question

First off I have the stock dual exhaust with just a DOD18M upgraded muffler.. Okay, so I bought a Magnaflow muffler from another member on here. I'm quite happy with it too ..Are there any other exhaust upgrades I should consider besides a total replacement? I can't afford headers either. How about a cat delete or a front y-pipe upgrade? I'm going to paint my tail pipes and exhaust tips black so I'm just throwing ideas around.. Any input will be greatly appreciated guys.

The biggest bang for your buck at this point would be the Y-pipe.

Thanks bud.. Now is it a buyable piece? Or do I go get one custom made? I know Magnaflow makes y-pipes, so do others probably.. But is there a specific one made for what I want or do I buy a universal one and get it custom fit?

You could also consider magnaflow high flow cats.

Definitely a yes for the Y pipe though.

Does Magnaflow make cats for my truck? I went on their website and found ones for an '09.. Then I found universal y-pipes. Are those resonators at the rear right before the exhaust tips? Is it worth taking those out? And for dumb question 4, which y-pipe should I buy, resonators in or out and which cats?? My iPhone is driving me crazy..

Just go to your local exhaust shop and have a custom Y made. If your in an area that doesnt have emissions inspection forget the cats and get a tune to delete them! Your truck will thank you

The magnaflow y pipe is like $30 I think, I would think it would cost more to have someone make you a y pipe. Also, the magnaflow one is stamped and flows very smooth. The resonators are "straight through" I believe so they don't really hurt performance at all, you would just lose a few pounds and gain a few decibels if you removed them. I prefer to run cats, but you could remove yours or buy hi flow ones, but likely would have to deal with check engine like issues or make O2 simulators.

I have a feeling the 2011 tuners will have limited options too, or at least not as many options as the ones that are out for the older models.
