Exhaust drone

I have just purchased a 2013 ST and love it , but it needs some sound.
I been looking at the videos online and have settled on either FSWERKS'
or the Magnaflow.
Those that have had experiance with these systems, do you notice any
drone at cruising speeds?
We use this for touring not racing but want some sound going through
the gears.
Also what can be done with that stupid sound tube into the cabin?
I have removed it from the intake and capped off both ends but I would
like to remove it completley, but not sure of what will happen when I
unplug it.(codes and other negitives)
Had an 11 Mustang GT and that didnot have any electronics to it, just yank it
out and plug the holes.

Thank You
Jim

I don't own the ST myself, but the SEL. I have had the FSWerks intake for coming up on a year and yes there is a drone but it is somewhat avoidable except on long hills where you're going to have it no matter what.

I haven't heard of what the power gains are like on the ST with that intake but considering for me it was an easy 10+ HP I could justify it not to mention the sound is preferable at least for me.

I believe he is asking about exhaust upgrades NOT intake

I have the MagnaFlow no drone sound quite at cruising speeds. but after I installed the Cat-less down pipe it become too loud and drone soon I accelerate. I ended up replace the center muffler to larger size(from 4"round x 14" to 6"round to 27") to get the drone out and quite it a little
