Default RE: hemi mds

I honestly dont know. I went to the local muff shop and told them i wanted to get a magnaflow, they knew the right size and put it on.

I had them cut the front res off, put the magnaflow on. Sounded good, expecially when you got on it. really tame on the highway. i just wanted it louder so i took it back and had the rear res cut off. Sounds great, but you can hear the mds now. i don't mind it though.

I have a Magnaflow and I think it sounds better with the MDS on actually. It's the dull single in dual out.

Default turn your mds off if you donīt like it

... someone told me, if your battery is disconect for a longer time, the mds will be shut off by the software.
so you have the 8 cylinders at anytime

I think that is true, but MDS will come back after a few miles of driving.

i have to hate mds. i have not figured out if it is my issue yet or not, but here it is, sometimes while in park or at a stop sign my tach will shoot to 200rpm and sit there for a couple seconds then shoot back to 550 and all the time it sounds normal and altanator doesnt slow down. does any one else know what is causing this? ohh and im not amused with it because i think if you are in 4wheel drive and stop it i have got it to ping loud once.

what magnaflow do you have? I have a gibson and love the sound but hate the mds 150%!!! My buddy also has an 06 and put a magnaflow on it last week and called me to ask why it sounds like S%$T. Do they have anything out to shut it off or eliminate it?

Thumbs down don't get Mds

I have a 2008 dodge ram quad cab and the MDS kicks in at 18mph and will drive you crazy. My dad has the same problem with his 2007 ram. The dealership wont turn the mds off, have to get a superchip to turn it off.

My C has it and I like it. The Ram doesn't ('03). The C gets a pinch over 21 mpg at 80 mph. Better if I could restrain myself (which I can't).

Call me a sentimental fool but I like the idea of saving fuel when not needed. Ialso don't mind the sound my 50 series makes when applied, blackshadow, have you noticed when the mds goes on an off, in relation too highway driving??

yes I have and when you don't have the light you never even notice it but now that I have the light and I am watching it come on and off I can feel it but you really have to pay attention to it, it come on and off so fast you don't even realize it, I got good gas millage before the cover and then after the cover it went up two more miles to the gallon when you go on long trips.

Default Hi Blackshadow

I have never gotten over 19 in my truck and that is running supreme gas. Although we have a lot of hills to go over in washington to go from one side of the state to the next. My wife has the Aspen with the Hemi and she has no problems at all, for some reason I can feel the MDS kick in everytime. I have duel exhaust and a cold air intake. I am thinking about getting the superchip to turn the mds off and see how that does. Is your truck a 4x4, looks lower to the ground. Very nice
