i have a 2001 2500 with the 8L V-10, what mufflers sound the best?

i am looking for a deep rumble, similar to a V-8, and i like it loud, but not obnoxious

wow thats a tuff call...

what i prefure you may dislike...............

uh i would try Zoomers i've heard good about thier products

CGS

google performance exhaust and see what you find..

i'm old school so i would go with long headers and a set of 1977 fleetwood cad. mufflers that has the best deep sound ....

I had the Dynomax UltraFlo Bullets on my SRT-10 and it sounded badass.

You'll never sound like a V8, so flaunt it. :)

That's the main thing I miss about that truck.. THE SOUND.

Haha, my Dad's 98 2500 is just straight pipes. OEM manifolds, into a single muffler (don't know which kind), and dual pipes out the back, and has no cats. Sounds very nice, honestly. You're not gonna get a V8 sound from a V10, but you can make it sound nice though.

Sorry there's nothing like a "Dodge" sound but I have always been a fan of the Mustang Flowmaster sound and that's pretty close.

The last V-10 was in 2003 if I am not mistaken. My 2002 runs 300hp & 485 lbs., that is bone stock.

This is a trick question, right? The 2500 was not offered with the 8.0. In fact the 8.0 was out of production by then and only the 1500 was offered with the newer 8.3 which is rated at 501 HP at 5600 RPM. Torque is rated at 525 ft. lbs. @ 4100 RPM.

Hey i went with two new Magna flow Cats, into a single Magna flow Muffler exiting thru a single 4" tail pipe. It really woke the truck up and gives the V10 a cool rumble when you push it...Like others have said it is a V10 it has it's own sound. If you try to dual out the pipes it will sound more like a 6 cylinder...(Tried it) NOT GOOD!!!! Push all 10 cylinders thru a single muffler that flows great and love the sound. I think it's great!!!

p.s. I also put a new K&N intake on the beast and it really helped the sound as well.
