    narrowed it down to these 4. ive read tons of threads on each just wanted some specific feedback before i pull the trigger. leaning more towards the aero turbine 2525, from what ive read it has a little less drone but the wicked flow 13 sounds good to. ive seen the youtube clips but still cant decide. thanks for any advice

    I just installed the 2525XL and i love it. you can definitely hear it when you GAS it, but when your just cruising there's No drone, just a very subtle tone if any. I didn't notice too much rasp either, which is why i chose the XL version.

    Aero Turbine mufflers don't have an internal packing which breaks down over time. Major plus.

    +1 for the Aeroturbine. I also have the resonated version and I like the sound. I have my exhaust chopped before the rear axle. With it done like that I have some drone in the cab but it's still less annoying than the magna flow I had in my 03 that went all the way back.

    I put a 13" Wicked Flow on my wife's truck. I think it sounds pretty good, but it does have a drone at highway speeds. It does have an axle dump so that accounts for some of the drone. I put it on 3 years ago and it still sounds the same now as it did then.
