resonator removal

I just put a flow master super 10 series in my 2011 1500. It has a funny sound at times like it is being baffled and I was wondering if I took the resonators off if it would make it louder n better?

Funny sound could be MDS engaged? If so removing the resonators might make it worse.

I believe you can disable the MDS with a programmer .

My truck does not have it so I don't know too much about it, but I have heard that with an aggressive exhaust it will make a bad sound when it is engaged. Hopefully someone that has experience with this issue will help out.

It should only be engaging when cruising under light load, is that when you are hearing the sound? Do you have a tow/haul switch? That might prevent it from engaging, but I'm not sure.

Good luck!

Straight duals with Cherry Bombs Extremes, minus the resonators, here and yes, charged392 nailed the sound. I have programmed the MDS on and off and I can say for a fact, "It will make a difference" in sound (When off it takes away that stumbling sound). After buying my used Ram and before I purchased the programmer, I had several different discussions with the local dealer service department regarding the resonators. The resonators, in theory (since I never done this), will baffle some of the sound. Especially, that stumblingly sound. Louder? I am not sure...

I have a Magnaflow and I agree it sounds like hell when the MDS kicks in. Around town I drive in 5th and the MDS doesn't kick in. I only have to deal with it on the highway when driving over 65-70. IMHO--- if you take the resonators off it will just make it worse.
