What's best depends on what you want. If you're looking for the best flow numbers, Borla, Magnaflow, and Flowmaster will be your best choices. Personally, I prefer the deeper sound of the Magnaflow or Borla systems. I'm eyeing a Magnaflow for mine and will probably get one in the next couple of weeks.

Look on YouTube for Dodge 4.7 and whatever exhaust you want to hear. There are hundreds of sound clips available. Listen to a few and decide what suits you best.

I've personally been eyeing up the Spintech sysyem. I had a friend that had their racing catalytic converter and muffler on a shortbed 2wd with a 4.7 and a 5spd that sounded GREAT

try upgrading your intake and getting a TB spacer. the motor has to be able to suck in clean air in order to make horsepower. itll give it a better growl too!! :)

I was looking at cutouts maybe electric ones I have cold air intake, h.o. cams, controller, headers, but the cats are still in I feel like they are a bottle neck, so I'm thinking cutouts will flow even better.

Not trying to distract from the actual subject of these questions, but does anyone know IF they make electric cutouts that would open into another system like "Side Pipes" and where I might find them, IF they do make them? I'm looking at a different sort of setup. :D

View attachment 65 I don't know if this will work. to install the cutout you have to put in a Y. You can turn it however you want. you can turn it to the side and bolt the secondary exhaust behind the cutouts keeping in mind that the exhaust will follow the least restricted path.

Before you choose I would look at some gibsons. I have a 98 with true duals and it sounds amazing. I thought when I put them on that my mpgs would go down but they didn't budge.
