Default thinking about some different exhaust tips

Currently I have the tips with the rubber flappers. It sounds pretty good for a bone stock 7.4 but I'm wondering if I went with another style straight through stainless tip without the flappers, if it would sound better and be a little louder?

You should start thinking about tips with mufflers , noise tickets are written with regularity these days ...

These are pretty trick exhaust tips by X Power Drive. Carbon bodies with billet tips. They can come with or without mufflers, and the mufflers are removable when you wish.

I got a noise ticket on Mead a few years ago coming out of the launching area. He also told me that they don't allow switchable exhaust either. LOL Haven't been back since but probably will this year. I'm going to expect a ticket this time.
