Muffler suggestions?

Hey guys,
I have been researching on the internet for a while now, and I am unable to decide. I have a 2005 wk 4.7, and I am just looking to change out the muffler. I am not really looking for better performance, just mainly want a deeper, throatier sound. The entire systems are out of my price range, so I am just going to get a new muffler. My goal is to get something close to sounding like the srt8, any suggestions? Any info will help! Thanks everyone!

Re: Muffler suggestions?

If you are looking to just swap out the muffler, go with a Magnaflow.

Re: Muffler suggestions?

A Magnaflow 12589 should be a good fit.

Re: Muffler suggestions?

If you want extremely aggressive and intimidating go with flowmaster 44. But beware there is going to be a fair amount of cabin drone. A lot more so than compared to your muffler now. If you want a deep rumbling tone I would go with Magnaflow. I prefer the flowmaster 44. It even made my little 3.7L sound good. But again I cannot stress this enough... There will be significant cabin drone.

Yeah one thing that I definitely do not want is cabin drone... So it looks like I will be taking a good look at magnaflows. And thanks for all of the feedback guys, helps a lot!

Re: Muffler suggestions?

Go with a magnaflow best sounding and frees up some hp. I have it in all of my cars.

Re: Muffler suggestions?

With just a muffler swap I don't think he is going to notice any significant power increase.

Do you know what model # your magnaflow is? If not, how long it is?

Check out jeepcoops build thread. He has the Hemi with the magnaflow muffler (not full catback), but if I am not mistaken the pipes are the same diameter, so it should work for you too.
