        Love how actually direct fit this product really was. I actually did a muffler delete on my truck but it was too loud an obnoxious. Installed this Flowmaster (817568) and it was perfect.

        Flowmaster has really produced a good and effective product. The American Thunder on my 2017 RAM 1500 really opened up the responsiveness of the engine. It certainly has opened up the exhaust flow to allow the engine to exhale better. Torque is almost instantaneous when I need it; whether I'm taking off from a red light or traveling at speed. I have to mention that I also have a Pedal Commander installed and replaced the factory air filter with one from KandN (not a cold air intake just the filter element). I don't believe that a CAI would improve the air intake much more than just replacing the filter. The per square inch area is not that much greater on an CAI. With this setup I can maintain a lower noise level from the engine at WOT (wide open throttle) and get almost the same effect. I can even say that the transmission shifts are smother and more precise in its downshifting as well. If you really don't care about noise the Outlaw is probably your thing. If noise is an issue for you go with the Force II it is much quieter. The American Thunder does rumble and produces cabin noise if your motor is revving over 2500 RPM. Highway driving may not be so bad but towing is a bit strenuous on the ears. Overall it makes for a much more fun driving experience and I really like it. For the RAM 1500 5.7l the direct fit is just fine. You really would be wasting your money if you bought the cat-back system. You already have a dual exhaust. If you really must let me tell you that the power gain is not going to be much better and you would never feel or realize it if the vehicle has 5 more HP and maybe 3.5 more LBS of torque. For now I'm enjoying it and I hope this helps in you search for an exhaust upgrade.
