I would guess the intake will make a slight difference in the exhaust tone but probably not make it very noticeably louder. As others have said, you could swap to a Flowmaster or no muffler, however, I would seriously consider a cutout. It's not going to cost much more than another muffler swap and you have the choice to run however you want....slightly louder than stock or much louder than stock.

Depends on the intake.. The K&N makes a good bit of noise. It's probably the loudest of the current aft. options. I don't know how long you have had that 18" muffler on there, but it will slowly get louder overtime. Mine is about 5 months old, it's def. louder than it was originally.

I put flow master american thunder series CB I got off summit racing a few years back and Ive been grinnin ear to ear ever since. After I added a fab'd CAI not only did I notice a huge change in performance but the sound was cleaner. Just get a cat back and see where u wanna go from there. Its legal, loud, and chicks dig a big tail pipe lol! But I do understand the addiction for loud trucks. My exhaust exits out pass side before the rear wheels...lol.

You can always go with the 14 inch maggie if you like the tone more than the flowmasters. I'm not too sure how much louder it will be than the 18. Any guys out there that have any input on how much louder the 14 will be than the 18?

Having been through about three different exhausts in the last couple of years between my 4.7L and my current Hemi truck I can say the 14" is noticeably louder than the 18". However, neither Magnaflow was as loud as the Flowmaster Super 44 I had on the 4.7L truck. I still say a cutout is the way to go if you want loud.

flows for the loud inside and outside the cab...been there, done that with side exits before rear passenger wheel...then I wanted muscular sound and dumped that for maggies...and also cutouts for when the urge for obnoxious is warranted..
