Quietest exhaust...?

Which is the quietest exhaust on the market for these trucks. Doesnt need to be stock quiet(angry vacuum cleaner!) but dont want to have my ears bleeding when hauling my car through the mountains in late June and would like to lose the cat to drop the EGT's down as low as possible.

Im between Banks(seems the quietest from the vids ive seen) and the 5" MBRP which seems a little noisier but holy crap does it sound good!

They are all really quiet if you keep the stock catalytic converter and have it exit in the stock location.

I would go with a 5 inch with a cat delete and an aeroturbine muffler. Thats what I run and it sounds great. I never hear it inside unless I am in a tunnel but everyone tells me it is loud when I get on it.

Then engine is louder than my exhaust ever will be in the cab.

So just get the cheapest 5" on the market and have the Aero muffler installed? Or get a regular 5" and put the aero where the cat would go and run two mufflers?

I spend too much time in the truck to have it too noisy. Last afternoon i filled up on my way home, had 140 miles on it when i got home tonight!

First fill up for me was 15.4mpg. About the same as my dodge got this time of year...

And 10-4 on the exhaust setup...

Get a system with a flow through muffler, then get an exhasut tip that has 2 layers with wrapping in between. I have a straight exhaust with the 2 layer tip and it made a noticeable difference. not big... just noticeable.

Also, if the system(stock or aftermarket) has the exit point to the side, cut it at the bed just before the tip, and re-direct it towards the rear so there is less noise going to the cab.

Tuning can also lower the turbo % at idle so there is less jet noise. When the engine is cold the turbo will actual boost more than normal.

Least to most noise.
stock system with cat and muffler delete pipes, 4", 5".
+ a flow through muffler. This muffler will decrease the SSSSHHHHHHHHHHH sound from the turbo.
