    Should I do a lightning exit or a turn down for less noise inside the cab?

    I’ve never run a lightning exit myself as I’ve ALWAYS done turn downs, but I’ve had plenty of customers do it on their Raptors and mention it’s quite inside the cab.

    Another option to consider is to do a turn down but turn the tubing towards the outside of the truck

    Did a down turn and kept the resanator there's a little drone Around 2000 rpms but not terrible , sounds much deeper at idle at wot sounds like the same as stock but louder, overall very happy with it

    I know this post was a few months ago ... did you go 3" center to center then purchase the magnaflow 3-2.5 Y pipe or have installer fabricate Y???

    Yep you're correct - 3" in/out with fabricated Y. It was about an hour of work and ~$100 out the door.

    Still really pleased with the exhaust.

    I went with the center/center based on recommendation from @A.I.I.Raciing (Brian). Offset pipes might be marginally quieter due to the flow, though I can't speak to it. I too was worried that it might be too loud, but I couldn't be happier with the result. The race venom is just enough to let those around you know there's a V8 under the hood with normal driving, nice an aggressive at WOT.
