Default 2012 Outdoorsman Hemi Exhaust?

I have had my new Outdoorsman for just over a month. I know they dont come with dual exhaust. I am torn on which brand to go with. I had a Flowmaster 40Series Delta Flow on my 2008 1500 Lone Star Hemi and it sounded great, very little drone to it (had it dump out in front of rear axle). I liked it, and I also like the way Gibsons sound on the Hemi too. I am curious about MBRP, how does it sound with the Hemi? I am wanting an aggressive sounding truck, but not too aggressive. Also curious if anyone has done it with two mufflers as opposed to a single in dual out?

With exhaust, it all comes down to how much you are willing/able to spend, and the sound you want. I like the sound of Flowmaster but I wanted something unique at the same time (I chose Spin Tec) (1 in, duel out)
On the other hand (I have never tested my Spin Tec but they have great dyno results as well) Borla is almost guaranteed to increase performance on any vehicle. Personally, I did not care much for the sound of Borla on our trucks.
I hope this info is at least moderately helpful. I am an extremely picky person when it comes to... well, just about everything. The Spin Tec muffler that I have on my truck, I am not 100% satisfied with the sound, but I have yet to hear a dodge that I like the sound of better. AND THERE ARE MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DODGE TRUCKS WHERE I LIVE.

p.s.
If you are purely looking to enhance the sound of your exhaust, DO NOT search YouTube. The audio in videos is completely inaccurate!!!

I am with you about the Borla, not throaty enough. The Flowmaster I had on my 08 sounded great with the dump outs. It too was a single in dual out. I also had aK&N cold air intake that seemed to make a huge difference as well. I am just contemplating which one to go with now. Most trucks where I am at have Magnaflow, and they don't have near the same rumble mine had. I know Gibson does, I am also more curious about the MBRP ones now. I know they are more well known for their diesel exhausts, which is why I am asking about their gas exhausts.

I did the following for my Outdoorsman:

Replaced Y-Pipe with Magnaflow #10778
Replaced Muffler with Magnaflow #13259
Removed Resonator

I kept my single outlet. Wanted to be different and keep it looking stock. Sounds AWESOME. I was asked by one person if I straight piped it even. Drone doesn't bother me but have never had anything to compare it to so couldn't tell you if its bad or not. I will say my wife doesn't complain about it going down the highway at 65.

BHepper,
I appreciate your feedback. I will have to look that muffler up and see if I can find some sound clips. I am most definitely going to delelte the resonator. What I am curious about is if anyone has done, removed the Y-Pipe and went with an X-Pipe and run two mufflers. If so, what are or would be the benefits and how does it sound? Also, what kind of muffler was used. As I stated before, I had the Flowmaster 40 series on my previous Ram, and it sounded great. I didnt have any kind of issue with drone.

Autoanything on here has a sale on the MBRP's, I believe he has some sound clips too in his vendor forum.

Default Exhaust Decision...?

So I think I finally decided on how to do my exhaust set up. I am going to have the factory y-pipe cut out, replace it with an x-pipe and run two single chamber mufflers. As for the pipes, I am looking at 2.5 all the way around, and dumping them at the corners of my bumper. Does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas on the matter? I asked a while back, and got very little feed back.

There's a chance with the true dual you might lose some power I was gonna do something like that but it seemed like it wouldn't really do any good unless you have more power going through it, I was going to do 2 super 10's/then 40's because I plan on headers in a year, but everyone was saying to stick with 1 muffler 1in 2 out or better results.

What size pipes were you going to use? I have spoken with a few shops, they said that there would not be much improvement on it, unless I were to add headers. That is my plan, just not at the moment.
