While a muffler delete can sound okay, that thing is going to DRONE so bad at freeway speeds which is where I do 90% of my driving and I'm very picky about what goes on my car and simply could not have it making all this unnecessary noise, I would say save up for a cat back eventually.

If you are just looking for the noise without gains, just a new flowmaster/magnaflow muffler to put in so you won't drone and will keep that raspy sound out of the picture.

EDIT, is that the "black pack" focus option? Looks good

The second sound clip didn't sound good at all, compare the two clips yourself.

What it really sounds like in person may be different, on a recording that one was terrible.

You asked for a comparison comment, the first version sounded a lot better.

Thanks for your imput! I find it not bad in person and in high speeds there is little to no drone noise as you would be surprised i could do a video if you would like to see it at high speeds

I straight piped mine with a header and no cats. Extremely raspy and drony.
Got a magnaflow resonator and threw on the stock cat. Extremely reduced the raspiness. Only get it for 2 seconds during a cold start.
