    I would like to get a little more sound out of my 2016 6.4 engine. I don't want to spend $800+ and I do not want it too loud.
    I came across a MagnaFlow #12909 that is 3.5" inlet and outlet, with one end centered and the other offset. It is 22" long and supposedly pretty quiet.
    I've only been able to find reviews with guys putting it on a Silverado...no Ram reviews.
    Has anyone tried this muffler?? Success?? :roflsquared:

    I had that muffler on my 2013 GMC Sierra 6.2. W/ factory exhaust just muffler swap sounded good but a lil quiet, w/ Kooks lt's & catless y it sounded GREAT. I havent heard it on a Ram but I was very happy w/ it on my 6.2 GMC

    I have the full system 19200 on my 16. Went back and fourth with the seller on price but settled at $715 shipped. It's a quality system which includes a nice polished resonator. He is still listing them on eBay but almost gone.

    I just bought a new to me 14 Ram 2500 6.4 19k miles with a MF s/in dual out on it. Drones terribly. I too am looking at the 12909 and a Factory resonator to keep the drone away. Best sounding quieter muffler I've heard yet. Still cant tell from videos how the drone is in the cabin around 1500-1800RPM.

    There is a little bit of drone at 1500 - 1800 but it's not obnoxious or intrusive. I only get it when cruising in full auto at around 65 mph.

    I tow a camper often. I wonder if I put on a stock resonator if it would help.

    do you think the 12909 is the same muffler that comes wth the magnaflow cat back? i just installed the single in single out cat back #19200 on my truck the other day and it sounds awesome.

    i think the magnaflow single in dual out does not have the resonator that the 19200 kit has

    It sorta looks like it as it is an offset/center configuration. Not sure how big the muffler can is but they do advertise it as a 4 inch system.
