Well I have two of these now and need to decide which to install. lol

I have a 5x8x18 and a 5x8x14 also.

How much louder will the 14" case be over the 18" case? Both should be pretty quiet at cruise correct?

I've just got to be rid of this Flowmaster. :anitoof:

i have the 5x8x14 on my dodge, i had a flowmaster original 40 on my GMC, both w/ similar setups ie turn downs, and IMO the Magnaflow is quieter at idle, but can get to be almost as loud as the flow upon acceleration. Id say go for the 18, so it wont be too bad, but still very noticeable.

Magnaflows. I had the Flowmaster 40's and 80's installed and both create terrible resonance in the ECSB. Talked with the muffller shop, and the guy says that the Magnaflows will be baffled enough to avoid the resonance. Find out here in the next day or so. I shouldn't have tried the Flows. I had Magnaflow in my 99 RCSB and it sounded good, but I was all for performance back then. Now that I have the EC, no need to try and push the bigger truck. Your call :think:
