OK everyone it is official and a no brainer IMO. Instantly remove all resonators and replace with an X-pipe!!! Cost is only $100-200 dollars and will make you feel like you just droped down at least $3-5k for the result you get.

I took pictures before and after plus videos before and after. I have the magnoflow mufflers but that was barely louder than a stock sixer. The key is to where you place the x-pipe my guy said in terms of the sound you are looking for. For less drone ( I mean NONE) the x -pipe should be all the way forward. This gives you less base deep sound and an amazing F-1 sound starting at about 3k rpm. I was told the farther back the x-pipe the more deep sound you have and therefore drone.

Paddle shifting in sport mode with the gear lever to the left and DTC button pushed once the car sounds awesome. At 5-7k rpm you feel like your at the race track and the gates of hell had just opened up. Frickin sounds like a $3k system!!!

That said cruising around top down in traffic it sounds maybe 5% louder than a stock sixer. I can not tell the difference at idle at all. As a bonus the revs climb much faster now with less $hit backing up the exhaust and choking the car.

Enjoy and if on the me ( I know I am just some dude behind the keyboard) but the way to go for sure if you want just a much better sounding car with fast RPM climb You will not feel like a some punk kid with some crappy sounding car or turn your car into something other than what it should sound like stock. Those with stock mufflers I am sure will see a big difference for the better as well.

Now to see if I can post pics. They will show the stock resonators, then the replacement
