I also hoped it wouldn't be as noisy as it was. Some of the initial noise was abated when I replaced the rubber hangers, repositioning the system and straightening it up so (a) it didn't rattle on the frame and (b) allowing a straight exit for the tip.

The thought did cross my mind that some/most of the noise was caused by the thin walls of the connecting pipe. The length of thin stainless, if replaced with a length of mild steel, would probably make a big difference. I say this because the noise inside the car didn't seem to be coming from the outlet but was resonating from the pipe itself.

Anyway, was way too noisy for me, so off it came and the kid with it now couldn't be happier.

My 2 cents.

PS - I remain curious about the Magnaflow OEM MOPAR performance system that occasionally appear on eBay.
Thanks for the info...I think I am going ahead and adding a long glasspack

Got the glasspack installed. It really helped alot. It's still alittle loud at 75 but that is with the rpms a little over 3000. I went with the longest glasspack (Thrush 24204) I could get on the straight section (31" total length).

If you want to sell your stock muffler assembly someday, assuming it is still good, let me know. It is good to have a spare around.

I still have it...and it is in good shape. Shipping may be pretty high though
