Hmmm... I'm looking forward to mine now... (I ordered it last week)

2.5 " borla muffler with 18" magnaflow resonator + their 2.5" flex pipe. I have Dominic's HFC. Should be interesting how it sounds.

Between 70-80 is the drone zone. It pisses me off. It's not as annoying now tho. Even when you delete the lunch box drone is there at those speeds.

actually, i cant even hear the exhaust as i go higher in speeds... sounds stockish with like a lunchbox delete once im in 6th gear at +75mph.

maybe the drone will start showing once the muffler packing gets older, but right now its pretty quiet... I only have like 800 miles on the exhaust system, i only use the car to work and its a really short distance both ways

This is all great. I'll definitely remember to buy a resonator along with the exhaust system!

I don't know if it will change drastically over time, my system (HFC, 2.5" borla w/ the 22" resonator) had about 50 miles on it when I took a road trip. I love it around town, I don't do a lot of highway miles either.

I guess this is a good reason to upgrade my sound system! As if I needed a reason.
