I did a lot of research before I purchased this exhaust system for my Quad Cab. I listened to many, many different sound files on Youtube and other internet sites before I chose Magnaflow. I have to say I am not disappointed in the least. I absolutely LOVE the exhaust note.
I have never purchased an aftermarket exhaust system before so I didn't know what to expect. I was looking for good sound, increased gas mileage and better performance. As previously stated, sound is a 10 to me; not too loud and just the right tone. Mileage is yet to be determined, but "Oh My!" on the performance. Ever since I purchased the truck in July I've been a little disappointed with the performance. It now performs the way a V8 should. Last night I went to pass someone who was driving 45 miles an hour in a 50 mile an hour zone (an all too common occurence here in South Jersey) and before I knew it I was hitting 70mph.
Yesterday I went to work via the interstate to make sure the engine didn't drone too much at a constant 70mph. I'm pleased to report that it was fine. Bear in mind that it's cold right now so all of the windows are up, but I didn't have to turn the radio up high or notice that the exhaust note was annoying at all.
My best advice would be to research different exhaust systems and listen to the sound files through a good speaker system, not the ones that come with your laptop, to find the sound you like. It's important to pick the same brand, model and engine size as you have when doing this. If you don't, you will be disappointed and will have noone to blame but yourself if you don't like the result. Once you've narrowed it down, then do your comparison shopping.
I STILL haven't found a better price than what I paid at Autoanything.com and I have been to dozens of sites. I saved nearly $80 over the nearest competitor. Best of all, the price included FREE shipping. I highly, highly recommend Magnaflow exhaust to anyone with a Dodge Dakota. Unleash the power you already have!
