    am i the only person that loves to hear the drone of their car? Its loud as hell but it always puts a smile on my face.

    i just hate it when im cruising at 2000rpms and a cop comes out of nowhere, i always think im gonna get pulled over

    I'm running un-equal shorties, o/r-H, 3-chamber flows and a very slight drone. The 2 and 1 chamber flows have a mean drone. My girlfriend has stock headers, o/r H, and 2-chamber flows and the drone is obnoxious in the car, but not too bad from the outside (it's a hatchback fox)

    3 chamber huh...I have 2 chamber delta flow. It sounds good. Drone don't kil me no more but man did you hear guero's WOT against that trans in "talk" section? WOW. :bang: But it is still one or the other man. Hey, I am in my 30's, have excellent hearing and 20/10 vision which means I can see what most of yo usee @10 feet, I can see clearly at 20 feet. BUT because I have good/great senses I am more sensetive to OUCH LOUD ness ... I just wish we had one guy here that had the absolute answer as to AWESOME sound like Guero and no killer boom.

    I have no cats and x-pipe and the drone is isn't bad at all. Don't get me wrong it drones a little bit but no where near as bad as an H. When I had stock H with the bassani catback it had HORRIBLE drone.

    stock headers, mac o/r H, and Mac flowpaths with 3" tails... drones a ton from about 1800-2050 rpm's, probably more than i would have liked... but if it didnt drone that would ahve been even worse. the only time drone is annoying to me is when it rattles loose change in my car and i think its gonna fall apart or when im stuck at that rpm on the highway. oh ya, and when im trying to listen to music at a normal level, or when im talking to someone, or when my g/f's in the car, or when i go by a cop.... u get the idea.it sucks but i'll live since i enjoy it every now and then. BTW i think the muffs have a bigger effect at creating the drone, but the offroad pipe just makes it that much louder.

    Thanks for posting guys. So is there any particular muffler you guys think drones less? Has anyone tried putting two similar but different size mufflers on like factory?

    The whole reason I got Magnaflows were because they have NO drone. My offroad Prochamber, shorties, and Magnaflows have absolutely zero drone, but it REALLY opens up when you get on it.

    lol sorry i just saw this ... i am getting an aje k-member and jet-hot coated kooks for this build up. the rest of the exhaust is up in the air right now.

    but i know that i am taking out the cats and want a fairly quiet exhaust note with no drone. i was thinking maybe 2 or 3 sets of pro-flow twister mufflers per side, sort of like what this guy has:
