I just purchased the Magnaflow Cat back exhaust system with the dual rear tips for my beloved 2006 Ram 1500 Hemi. This is the first item I purchased via Summit Racing. I did a fair share of research and decided to go with this kit over the Flowmaster even though it was a bit more money. I think the sound and quality will be a better fit for me and my truck. I am 40 years old so I don't want something too loud just an additional rumble. I am hoping someone will let me know that I made the right choice.

i just put a 14" on my 11 and love it, i think the catbacks use a 18 or 24 so should be a little more mellow than mine which is loud as hell when you stop it, but i can barely hear it on the highway

I had the flow 40 series and now have an18in magnaflow. The mag seems a little quieter than the flow. You should def replace the factory y pipe. You,ll never get the full benefit of the catback with the stock y pipe.

So I finally got my Magnaflow cat back kit installed and I just love it. I must admit it is a little louder than what I was expecting however after driving it for about a week I have gotten use to it. This kit uses the 18 inch muffler with 2.5 inch stainless tubing out to 3 inch dual tips that exit at the rear bumper. It sounds evil, looks great and gives my truck a little more pep. I purchased it from Summit for about $660 and my regular mechanic installed it for another $100. If your looking for a great quality system that wont break the bank give it a try. I may be crazy but it also seems like I am getting about another 2 MPG which was another nice bonus.

you made the right choice, but it will get a little louder and deeper as it breaks in
