For those of you that have the system installed, did you feel like there was a drone when you first installed it? I've heard the exhaust quiets down a bit after about 800 miles but at the moment, I do hear a decent amount of drone between 1800-2700 RPM area. Was wondering what you guys have experienced after the break in.

Touring or Track Edition? There's zero drone with the Touring Edition. Track, maybe -- depending on one's sensitivity. May be a given, but sometimes drivers (in any kind of car) mistake exhaust tone for drone as they're used to the quiet nature in stock form.

Ehhhh, I'm going to politely disagree. Droning on Accel is non-existent with the Track Edition, but high resonance drone is especially loud on decel between 3500 down to 3100 RPM or so. It's not a huge range and easy to shift up or down out of if you want to avoid it. Braking gets you out of it quickly if you're in 3rd and don't have time to shift before engine braking. I think the drone is manageable and by no means a deal-breaker, but it is present in my setup, with the stock downpipe. Happy to take vids of the difference between tone and drone transitioning from 3800RPM down through the drone range if someone wants an example

Hey, just to be clear... you are referring to your Touring system? If you are driving along at 65-70 on the highway are you experiencing drone?

Track edition, edited my post to be more clear. I would imagine the touring has zero drone, especially hearing y'all say it. You've been 100% on the mark with product promises so far in my experience!

Ok cool... thanks for clarifying for the peeps here. Track is totally liveable to me too, I feel connected to the car but I love all things motorsportish... touring is definitely more mellow and refined in the cabin but sounds really nice outside.

Addicted to this setup is an understatement! The Catted Downpipe makes the overall system about 20% louder than having stock downpipe. It's hard to explain to someone who hasn't experienced this system, but it feels like an active exhaust with valves as the tone changes when you creep over 3,700 RPM at moderate or heavy throttle, and becomes absolutely vicious without sounding raspy. My old muffler delete, Magnaflow, and Invidia were lacking this character that I was after.
