I'm looking to go back to a single exhaust. I like the look of them more, but I still want the performance sound. No dumping.

Anyone know of anything? I was looking at the AT3030, but heard that without a resonator it is obnoxiously loud and I don't want that. How bad is it with a resonator? If I go this route I'll have to piece the whole system together. Buying a Dynomax tailpipe and adding the AR30 resonator is just as expensive as buying the OE replacement with resonator included.

Any comments are welcome...but I'm not getting headers, can't afford that much.

While you are at the shop I would recommend installing a Y pipe. They are not a lot of money and really improve flow. I too like my pipes out the back. can't really see mine but they are right behind the roll pan. Good luck

Sorry Redtruck-VA, day late...don't go to a shop, I do my own exhaust work. Pieced together a single straight through kit that fit like a glove. OEM tailpipe from Dynomax, AT3030XL, 3" intermediate pipe (s bend pipe) for a 98 Ram...also from Dynomax, and a 2.75"-3" adapter. Only had to trim 6" from the intermediate pipe.

Again, thanks for the suggestion charged392...took it for a test drive down main street at 2:30 am...grinning from ear to ear.
