For now.
You'll grow to hate it over time as the packing loosens up and the droning starts. Mine is still moderately quiet at 60-75 mph (1800-2300 rpms), but drones loud enough to be a real irritation and rattles items in the interior at 1400-1600 rpms. When I'm towing my travel trailer,I absolutely despise this exhaust.

it does sound good, but my information tells me that the 2001 is a 2 valve engine and I am looking for info on the 3 valve version - they do sound different and everyone tells me as I have experienced they drone like hell

Mine doesn't drone. Is that something that is inherent to the 3v V10?

No,it's what's gonna happen with some age on that Magnaflow muffler.
Give it time-you'll see.
It's not so much the muffler,it's the firing order and odd-ball tone that the 6.8L V10's produce. Once that Magnaflow loosens up a bit, it's gonna be loud and drone on your truck. That's not to say that the Magnaflow mufflers are low-quality...they're actually quite good.I run them on my Tbird and Navigator and they sound great on both,but I hate it on my V10 truck.

I personally have grown to love that pissed off V6 scream the V10 produces. In fact, it's gotten to a point where I can't stand most V8s now, except maybe the LS and the Mustang V8. Most V8s just drive me nuts.

Great video I like the sound of that combo I also like that crazy looking gadget on the windshield . The 3v's do drone a little bit more than 2v's from what we have experienced towing and driving daily.

I have been told that it is inherent to the 3 valve. There are tons of the 2 valves around that sound good and dont drone. I had a new magna flow system buikt and it sucked from day one. I went back to stock

What exactly is the Y-pipe mod that you did? Just replacing the choking point with a bigger pipe? Sorry if I sound stupid, I don't even own a V-10 truck..........YET. That might be changing here this weekend!!

Basically yes, it's just replacing that choked down restrictive "T" pipe with a free flowing "Y" pipe. Cheap mod to do with a real benefit. I used the SPD pipe from 5-Star Tuning. If you get a chance to see the stock pipe, you'll understand. Also keep in mind this only applies to the 2 valve V10 engines.

Like the sound (the MF on mine is too quiet) yours is just right, can you measure the height and length of the muffler body so I can order the same one, Thanks Sean
