Magnaflow D-Fit kit Opinions

Looking at maybe doing something with my exhaust. I found the Magnaflow D-fit kit, which is nothing more than a straight through resonator/muffler that bolts up in place of the stocker, and you get a 5" clamp tip. For about $275. Seems a bit high for "muffler" b/c I"m not going to use a 5" clamp on tip... probly reuse my stock clamp on tip. I don't want to mess with anything foward of the cat. so a full cat-back would be it. But I DO NOT want the polished out systems.... they get you pulled OVER! Been there done that. I like the stock looking style exhaust. Hence why the D-fit caught my eye.

For $275, I'm sure I could have a muffler shop weld in a resonator in place of the muffler for a lot cheaper. Am I right?? or am I off in left field. Looking to get a bit more noise overall, some whistle and maybe help lower my EGT's.

Does anyone know if our stock mufflers are "straight through" design, just extremely huge?

*** Just noticed Magnaflow offers a 4" SS cat-back kit, that is not polished, no tip, for a bit over $400. My other option vs the D-fit or having a shop eliminate the muffler.

Yeah... looks like if/when I do an exhaust I'll do the "pro" series magnaflow. 4", cat-back, for about $400. Polished exhausts SCREAM "I'm aftermarket, pull me over". Had a turbo supra with a SS Japanese Tanabe 3" system. quietest exhaust I've heard, sounded stock. Got pulled over all the time.... "your moofler is illegal boy". But if it was regular finish... never would of had problems.

ya.....but ur in man-truck now, not a race car. all the cops around here just like lookin at trucks unless they get a call for one mudding in a farmers field. you'll be fine with shiney if you want it



.........got my SS exhaust installed today, its the PRO series SS Magnaflow Turbo-back system. You really wouldn't see enough of the tip for it to look fancy or flashy. Look under the truck and all that SS does look nice tho! I would recommend somin other than MagnaFlow, i loved the way my truck ran on the way home, but the downpipe install was retardly difficult. My buddy put a 5" MBRP turbo back system on his 7.3 excursion and it fit up fairly easy, the 4" downpipe for this 6.0 was ignorantly tight with the bends on the pipe! I would get MBRP if I were to do it all over again.
