Dynomax VT muffler

Dynomax VT muffler

Postby cfaherty [OP] » May 01 2012, 7:24pm

Has anyone tried or heard Dynomax VT mufflers on a truck? The no drone portion of it has me intrigued. While I don't mind it, this is a truck the whole family rides in and when I had a Hemi Charger with Flowmasters on it, they really were bothered by the drone at about 1700 - 2000 RPMS. Thanks for any advice.

It's a good deal as long as that little spring does it's job. Here's an interesting comparison clip showing what drone does.

I was eye ballin that muffler, but decided to go with the Flowmaster 70 last year. Moving parts in a muffler just dont seem like they would last before something siezed.
Hopefully a member will chime in that has one on there truck, and give a report.

I installed it on my 2011 silverado at the end of January. So far so good, not drone at all while you're cruising, but sounds sweet when accelerating.

Here is my thread.
Dynomax VT exhaust?

V8 means power and not noise! I agree that you should have a good tone, but drone sucks!

ps I grew up aroung 18 wheelers!

Thanks for all the advice. Drone does suck. I loved the way my Charger sounded with two 40 flowmasters on it, but when I got on the highway, it would get almost deafening inside while driving with the drone. Thanks again everyone.

I installed the VT about month and a half ago, no drone, nice rap when you step on it! I've noticed mine cuts down to 4cyl quite a bit more now! Improved mileage minimal, but up a bit, still looking for more, I believe a tuner is coming into my near future. I now have Airaid CAI, throttle spacer and duel exhaust, after tuner, whats next? Any Suggestions (still on warranty).
