    i always liked my flowmaster 40 originals.

    of course you could straight pipe it and see how it sounds too

    im actually going to make this a nice street truck.

    plans are
    headers
    exhaust
    srt-10 hood
    intake for the hood
    programmer

    trans-go shift kit

    then later on down the road, maybe some internal work on the engine.

    Trust me, spintech sounds way better than Flowmasters, and give a little more horsepower too.
    Flowmasters, and I have the 40 series, sound annoying as fuck. They drone.

    Instead of all these "upgrades" you should have spent the extra on a Cummins and had a fast truck, instead of one that looks and sounds that way.

    I have an 06 ram hemi and have tried several cat backs. I like a nice sounding exhaust, but not too loud.

    I tried the magnaflow stainless cat back. Really nice kit, great fit and finish, sound was awesome. My dislike came from the sound when the MDS kicked in.

    I tried the banks stainless cat back, loved the sound on all 8 cyls, hated the sound on 4 (again). Nice kit, but overpriced for what you get.

    I tried the Gibson stainless cat back, sounded okay on 8 cyls, sounded like crap on 4 cyls. Found kit super cheap, but fit, finish and sound were not there.

    Ended up using a magnaflow and getting a superchips and shutting off the MDS... much better.

    Personally I would recommend the magnaflow system. Good luck.

    i have a magnaflow (muffler only though :o) installed on my 05 5.7l and it sounds great. not loud and obnoxious and slightly noticeable on the highways.
