Hey fellow Dakota owners, I am new here and I need a bit of help/advice on choosing a new muffler for my 2007 Dakota ST 3.7l V6.
When I purchased the truck used from a dealership, the vehicle had the stock exhaust and me being me, all my past vehicles always had aftermarket exhaust/mufflers. I like to hear my vehicle, not into the silent stock exhaust. Well I have had single chamber mufflers before on my old '94 K1500 Chevy Stepside(miss that truck), and on a 2000 GMC Sierra. Both of those trucks sounded great with a single chamber.
So, I'm thinking maybe the same muffler would sound good on a V6? Turns out no, I do not like the sound at all. It only sounds good on a warmed up idle.
I am interested in magnaflow, I like the straight through design, not the chambered crap(atleast on a v6). I am going for a low end, deep tone this time because I think it would work better with a V6, no gargle, open header sound.
I found this muffler I am interested in, the magnaflow 12216 model..
I found this one as well, dual outlets for future dual exhaust..
The exhaust setup is going to be dumped under the bed as it is currently, I am not trying to get pipes and tips at the moment being on a budget and all.
Anyone else on here have a 3.7l V6 close to the same setup I want to do? I know it will probably be on the loud side but it can't be any louder than what I have now. Sorry for the long post but I just want to pick the right muffler this time, this is my 1st V6 vehicle.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
