Muffler delete

It may be something I could look up fairly easy, but I wanted some opinions from some guys that have done it.

I'm currently running H&S mini with the sinister EGR delete, DPF delete, and a S&B CAI. I love the sound now, but I want a little more. So I was thinking maybe a muffle delete. I want to keep the stock tips, cause where I like the cops are prone to pulling over fords that don't have the stock tips for emissions reasons.

So the question is, what are any of y'all running for a simple muffler delete or even a muffler that gives better sound than the stock?

I went with a 4" Magnaflow no muffler system to test because I didn't feel like trying to hack up the stock tip. The mufflers are in the bends and just would be more pain and $$ unless you do the welding yourself. Honestly I hardly noticed any sound difference. Almost every post I've read is that the muffler is mainly for the tip. 5" people say its deeper, but that could be from the 5" dpf delete. Either way I for one noticed no sound difference.

Ok that's what I needed to know. If there is no difference I won't even worry about it. Coming from my 7.3 it is just so quite, which I both love and hate all at once. Every once in a while I like to hear it scream.

I had a buddy in Parker county get pulled over and ticketed for his, and the only thing that gave him away was he had an 8 inch chrome tip. Same thing happened to another buddy of mine on Tarrant county. That's why I decided to just do a DPF delete to begin with, cause I travel all over the state, and I'm in the metroplex often.

For the most part yes, but there are about a dozen counties here that they hold tight on the emissions crap.

He got ticketed for no emissions. They got tipped off because his huge tip he had replaced it with.

What was the value of the ticket? Was it really no emissions or just a muffler ticket?

I find this hard to believe with how many guys in parker county alone are driving around with trash can sized exhaust tips. They'd have to be pulling over 1 of every 2 trucks out there.
