What are you guys hoping to gain with the new exhausts? Is there any performance gains? Is it for the sound? Does it make a visible difference?

probably a matter of brand preference more then anything. Any HEMI pipes will work for the Rebel... Actually, do V6 guys have options as well?

For me it's the exhaust note. The Outlaw series is the most aggressive sounding muffler from Flowmaster, The American Thunder Series is quite a bit more moderate. There's no claim of hp gains. Imo, it's a Hemi, it oughtta sound like it, the stocker is almost non existent @ higher rpm's, @ idle not so much. Anyway leaving those tiny resonators in place will kill any drone noise while cruising @ highway speeds, well that's the theory, I'll know tomorrow. Btw anybody else interested in the direct fit muffler mod with hardware included, the cheapest vendor by far is Summit Racing $315.00 + free shipping 25lbs. part/link http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLO-817633

no visible difference and not worried about HP gains, just looking for the exhaust tone as well, wanted something that sounds good but not so aggressive as the outlaw series, hoping the American Thunder is it.

I have flowmaster 50 series on my 07 Ram w/ Hemi and k&n intake. She roars nicely! Plus no major drone in the cabin. I'd like to hear the flowmaster outlaw... I hope you all post some video clips :)

I'm really enjoying the youtube videos on the Spintech mufflers. I'm leaning toward a purchase of this muffler soon.

My god that almost made me wet my pants. And that's just a flowmaster 50 series muffler?
Outlaw Series muffler w/factory resonators. Cruising along @ 77 mph last night, absolutely no drone cabin noise. This will be the cheapest mod for biggest effect I think will go on this truck.
I was totally shocked, with the exhaust note being so close to the $1500 full Corsa Extreme system I have on my Challenger SRT.

I ended up putting on a Corsa 14405 catback, it's a bit pricey but there is no drone and has a unique raspy sound too it. I actually got a pretty good deal on it so I can't complain too much plus I sold the stock catback system for a couple hundred bucks to make up for the cost as well.
Here is a video of it: https://youtu.be/_8MHdvqXIp8

I agree, can you get a vid of the sound inside while cruising, I would like to hear it too.

ugh I was trying to not spend any more money on the new truck once it arrives but looks like that may be harder than I thought =)

I love the full exhaust on my charger (full headers back) but the truck is for the family so I dont want it to be different inside. My only issue with MDS sound is because of the long tube headers I have, it doesnt like having the missing pressure when the cylinders are off. Its only at low speeds though.

In cab drone: 0 @ cold start & 27 mph there's a rumble, albeit very smooth & non vibrating. You can hear MDS kick in, but very very subtle, the factory resonators are doing what they're supposed to do, but when you step into it & the 8spd downshifts with wot "wide open throttle", it really wakes up, but again, only when you floor it. I'll try to get some in cab vid/audio up tomorrow after I get off, but I'll tell ya, I couldn't be happier with this combo, I'm just as satisfied with it as I am with my Corsa Extreme on a 10 second Challenger, just nowhere near as loud when you go to wot. http://youtu.be/CU5bfDLbshA
