Default Before and After Videos - Stock vs DynoMax VT

The videos are complete. Clink the Links Below for the Before and After of the Stock vs. DynoMax VT Muffler. Note: No other modification were made to the exhaust system. This is with the factory Y-Pipe and Tips. The only other mod I have is a drop-in K&N.





The change is certainly not drastic like some of the exhaust system swaps on the forum, but I am happy with it for now. At first thought, I wish it was a little louder, but I know in the long run, Ill be glad I didn't put a 14" Muffler on there. Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Pretty noticeable difference I'd say. Sounds really good.

Sounds great man! I'm guessing the sounds differ with each setup, I'm looking for a single exhaust Dynomax setup for my 06, they seem to be one of the most affordable ones around.

Two Week Update:

So Ive had the muffler installed for 2 weeks now. I beleive it has "broken in" some and gained a little bit of volume from when it was first installed. I assume this is normal for most mufflers with fiberglass packing. I am still impressed with the muffler's ability to completely mask the drone on the highway. I love the agressive tone at WOT. However, I am still left wanting a little more on start-up and idle. I guess you really cant have the best of both worlds... All in All, I am satisfied, and I know in the long run, the more mature choice is a quieter muffler, but the teenager in me still wants that Hemi to turn heads in parking lots when I start it up.

As for now, Dynomax only has the one 20" option for the SO/DO VT muffler. I hope that down the road, they will incorporate more options into the VT line. I think a 14" and a 18" with the same VT Technology would appeal to many of the truck owners who want a louder muffler, but still reduced drone at sustained highway speeds.

Default dynomax vt

would you mind clarifying the highway results, there is no drone but is it louder at cruise? i love the idea that it may sound stock when not punching it (kids watch dvd's lol)
