    I got some longer commuting (for me anyway) to do tomorrow night, so i will report back afterwards on what I think of it on the highway and listening to it for a longer amount of time

    After some long highway stretches and some mountain roads and one WOT orgasmic overpass pull i am really loving this setup.

    i found there to be very little drone. Only really when the truck was lugging a bit like 6th gear going up a hill before it downshifts. even then it was minimal. with the radio on it was almost nonexistent. Mountain roads it was great. Just some rumble when it kicked down a gear and had to rev for hills. no complaints here. even down hill with the MDS was not bad at all. actually its better than when i had an aftermarket muffler in there.

    Now on to the best part. There was a long overpass I had to drive under, so naturally I went WOT!:driver:and oh man this was great It sounded amazing. What else is a man supposed to do....I wanted to video it but I didnt think of it in advance and I am not sure I could drive and hold a phone to video it all while enjoying that pleasurable sound.

    I have to go the same way Wednesday so I will try to video it. It probably wont do it justice but its worth a shot. It sounded so damn good!:headbang:

    A few of questions in comparing this straight pipe to the Mufflex Magnaflow system I recently bought...

    1. How much louder (scale 1 to 10) is the Solo over the Mufflex at idle? (For me, stock muffler is a 3, Mufflex is a 6, Solo ???)
    2. How much louder (scale 1 to 10) is the Solo over the Mufflex at WOT? (For me, stock muffler is a 3, Mufflex is a 6, Solo ???)
    3. With the Mufflex, at cruising speed at around 60 mph and 1400-1600 RPMs, the drone does penetrate into the cabin just a little more than my liking. I usually have to engage tow/haul mode to lessen it. Is the drone prominent in this RPM range with the Solo muffler delete?

    I'll answer your questions the best I can but its been a while since I have heard the mufflex delete in person.

    1. I would give it a 6 maybe 7. its almost the same volume as mufflex BUT the idle tone is a bit different. I always thought the mufflex almost sounded like a diesel at idle, not exact but it definitely has a similar sound. Solo has more of a gasser sound for sure with a very nice idle tone

    2. 7, i feel its a bit louder probably due to the larger diameter pipe (4") used for the offset which increases flow thru the back to back bends over the 3.5"

    3. Last night I was in the same exact situation cruising at that speed and rpm range. The drone was there but not prominent. It was low enough that I could turn on the radio to 13(8.4 Uconnnect) and the drone wasnt noticeable anymore. In fact its hard to tell when the MDS kicks in now as far as sound when the windows are up.

    Let me know if I answered all your questions or if you need me to explain anything further. Also let me know if you have any additional ones

    The solo having no muffler give it more “rasp” I imagine. And thats the coolest part.

    The dad/Family man in me is saying cut the resonator off and deal with what you got.

    The me in me is saying sell the mufflex!!!! Straight pipe this monster!!

    I should be responsable and make my own y pipe at work and cut off the resonator. Save some money and some headache from the wife saying “ didn’t you just get a new mufflex...? Why are you taking it off?”

    LOL

    Yes, I hear ya. If my wife sees a new FedEx package on the porch soon and then sees the mufflex laying next the OEM muffler in the garage, I can't imagine what she's going to say. I'm pretty sure she doesn't know how much I'm spending... Unless she reads these boards.
