From that experience, I was leaning towards the Magnaflow catback because I don't plan on doing much aside from intake/exhaust.

I am just woried that the FSWerks would drone as it is a 2.5"... what's everyones thoughts?

TL:DR - Magnaflow or FSWerks Stealth Catback?

Sounds raspy and ricey to me more than the FSWerks.

Personally I'd go custom or FSwerks, but the FSWerks still allegedly has some drone, and I haven't fully experienced it in person yet so idk.

I am trying to find performance stat differences to justify spending the extra money for a Stella but am having a hard time. Does anyone feel like the increase in price is due to aspects other than performance. You know Brand Name, aesthetics, ect. Or have I just not come across the information I am looking for yet?

Are you looking for performance numbers between the Steeda intake and the FSWERKS intake? If so there is a dyno thread floating around here somewhere. They also have dyno sheets on each of the websites. Performance numbers are almost identical, but the Steeda comes with a new aluminum airstack and the FSWERKS uses the stock one.
