Default Mufflex questions.....

Can anyone tell me what the sound difference (besides youtube) on the mufflex systems between mellow, moderate and aggressive? I know there's a sound level difference description on the web site, but I' looking for a comparison to magnaflows 18, 20 and 22".......

loudness to an ear is different with everyone... i run a 22" maggie and it is borderline too loud now (after it breaks in)...at least it's very quiet incab which i love. Most other mufflers are louder than mine anyways as i can tell when I roll up to a light and hear others. I want to hear a refined, muscular tone and after trying flows and a shorter length maggie.. the big body maggie (5 x 11 x 22) was the exact tone I was looking for. The sound is almost stealthy which is why I run cutouts for when I do have the urge for loudness!!

Get the 18" it's good if u want more take off the resonators. Or if u really want aggressive sound get the 14 ... And if. U want louder take off the resonators ...if u don't know what they re they are 2 feet in from your back bumper in the exhaust pipe

The mellow should use the magnaflow 22, moderate should use a an 18" and aggressive should use a 14".

Just yesterday I installed the 18" magnaflow. All I needed to buy was 3, 3" muffler clamps and a 18" extension piece which cost 8$. I thought about the mufflex but decided to try installing it with pieces myself and boy am I glad I did. I need to finish a couple things up tonight to finish the install and then ill write it up. As for sound I truthfully expected it to be much louder. But since I do tow a 7400 tt I guess its not that bad bc if I got the 14" it might get a little to annoying when pulling the hills

the mufflex system is a magnaflow muffler that has extensions on it to make up for the large 26" stock muffler. if you just buy a magnaflow you would have to make the extensions yourself. nothing really different. cost vs easy of install.
