I don't know because I bought the truck from a buddy 2 years ago and the system was already on there, however I did hear it when it was just cut off and it sounded nothing like it did with tail pipes and big tips. He said he could tell an improvement from stock when he had it though, however I can't justify that.

I lost power when I cut my old muffler off. I was glad to get a new one on!

I have my 3.0 auto straight piped. Its dumped right before the rear axle, I gained alot of power back rather then just running it straight outa the cat....Still not as good as stock, but I like it.

have you tried a thrush turbo muffler? i put one on my grand cherokee with a 4.0 and it sounds pretty good. not raspy or ricey. my buddy put duels on his 3.0 ranger with cats on each side and thrush turbos and it sounds great.
