Im in here with you, Ive been wondering which one to get too, only magnaflow for me. Mines also a daily driver and want it louder, but not loud to wake everyone up when I start it up on the cold mornings.

thanks a lot to both you guys, I also leave around 530 am for work and would like to be thoughtful of my neighbors.

I was leaning towards the 18 inch, but the 14 inch sounds about right.

thanks again!

As you can see from my post of before & after vids, I am way glad I did the Magnaflow 18" from Mufflex. Really a great sound AND on my way home from install on the Parkway the drone WAS very present........I was a little worried...... but with a 14" you WILL get drone in the cab! And wait for these muffs to break in.....will only get louder......by the way, I did not do the Y pipe!

anyone with a broken in 14 inch have anything to comment? How loud it is when its fully broken in? And the drone?

I went through a lot of headaches modding my old car, and just kinda want to breeze through with this truck with no problems.

I have the Magnaflow 14" on mine but i've only put a few hundred miles through it. Im still happy with my decision. I think any quiter and i wouldnt be happy. Im 31 so my young side wants a loud ass truck but my older side likes the quite cab, the 14" is perfect.:smileup:

I've got 5000 miles on mine,so I think it;s broken in, its only slightly louder than when it was new.In my opinion the only time it's even close to being loud is at wide open throttle.As far as drone goes I drive with the trans in 5th,with disables the MDS,since i don't like the exhaust note while the Mds is engaged.while cruising at highway speed(70mph for me)their is a slight drone,but with the radio playing its not annoying at all,just my opinion...:smileup:.Rob

I have the 14 and I think its too loud. Wish I had the 18. Mufflex will even tell you that you will have drone with the 14 and I do!

Did you happen to see how flat the roads that truck was driving on are?? We have hills everywhere and even a slight incline when the engine has to work alittle more is when the drone is bad. If I'm driving on a completely flat surface its ok but thats not most of the time. For some reason at idle mine is much louder!

ahh man that makes me sketchy about buying any muffler.

anybody know if the drone comes in with a full catback system too?
If you get the 18 I think you will be very happy. Exhaust is a very subjective thing! I don't claim to know everything but I'm a managing partner for a very large retail automotive repair company for the past 25 years so I know a little:smileup: Magnflo is a great product!

Hammer1 do you have MDS working when you are driving?I don't like the sound when it kicks in,I only use(MDS) it while crusing on the highway,around town I use it with the trans in 5th so the MDS won't engage,I love the low rumble of the 14", and you are correct exhaust sound is very subjective,what is too loud for one person is just right for another....:smileup::smileup:..Rob

I never drive in MDS! I can feel it as much as I can hear it. MDS makes that great exhaust sound very poor!!
