Default Question about Flowmaster or other exhaust on 4th gen

Does anybody have a flowmaster 40, 44 or 10 series with the factory dual tail pipes? Just wondering how it sounds. Would the resonators in the factory pipes along with one of those loud mufflers be about the same as the quieter muffler and straight through pipes of the cat back? I'd like it to be pretty aggressive and I also wouldn't mind saving a few bucks getting a muffler installed rather than buying the cat back. Or is there another good choice for exhaust?

Remove the resonator while doing the muffler.. makes the sound much better. I don't have the duels but with my single super 44 I have ran straight muffler swap with resonator and stock pips, chopped 2" after the muffler dumping under the box and then resonator deleted and all mandrel pipe back from the muffler to a 5" tip.. For sure the best sound. A resonator only really works with the stock muffler to help kill sounds the muffler misses... It just quiets aftermarket exhausts.

I put a Flowmaster 50 HD under my 2013 RAM Express RCSB 4x4 and left the resonators. I really like it. My neighbor put a Magnaflow under his and it is too loud and obnoxious. Just one man's opinion.

If you think a magnaflow is loud, then mine would sound like the love child of a train and a tank.

I'm not sure I can remove the resonators on mine it's different than my 07 that had only one that looked like another muffler..these are smaller and right towards the end if the pipes...I've had 40, 44 and now 10 series on my mustang and I know they're about the loudest thing besides a straight pipe so I'm thinking maybe the resonators would make them just slightly quieter? I would only leave the ones right at the end I would take any other resonators out that may be in there

I believe the only resonators are the 2 near the end.. they can be removed and swapped with new pipe fairly easy. I beleive RansRam is running super 44's with the resonator on with a duel set up and it sounds real nice.

I guess I'll probably give that a try and if it doesn't do it for me I can just get new pipes made. Thanks guys!

I personally left the resonators in and I had a flowmaster 40 delta flow muffler.

I also swapped out for 5" tips.
