    Would like to hear from some of u with a magna flow muffler???

    its gonna cost 300 bucks canadian to get the muffler installed and tip the muffler is the stainless one.

    I have the 18 on mine and sounds great, not to loud inside the cab. The flowmaster I had on before was down right annoying..

    Meh. 4.0 V6 kinds sounds like trash anyway unless you are at full throttle and high RPM. My Banks sounds great between 1000 and 2000 RPM then again at about 4000 and up.

    enough to get me there
    I disagree. I had it dumped and turn down before the axle and it is loud and drones like no other. Sound bounces off the road and can be felt and heard through out the cab. if you are going to dump it, do it after the axle and angle the pipe, so it doesn't directly reflect the sound off the road.

    Your from Cali so you'll never have to worry about this but NEVER dump your exhaust still underneath the vehicle, the condensation created in the winter time from it will rust out things. Important things like break lines, happened to a guy I work with, he said shortly before everything failed his rear tail lights were shorting out too. Just something to keep in mind if you live north

    nooo k k i'll clarify

    I have on my truck: AFE stage 2 Cold Air intake with pro dry S filter, & Magnaflow Cat-back exhaust system.

    Those are bolted on my truck and wont be taken off. I also have a UNICHIP programmer that came with a map specifically for those two upgrades, I ordered it that way I bought everything as a package.

    The Unichip has an On/Off switch

    so one dyno will be just the intake + exhaust and the
    other dyno will be intake + exhaust + Unichip
