    I was thinking Corsa too but I found a good deal on SW Longtubes and mid exit cat back. I'll post a clip when I get it installed.

    Where did you end up getting them? I'm currently deciding between SW headers and lighting setup or a Corsa Extreme. Plenty of clips of the Corsa out there so a clip of the SW setup would be nice.

    So did you go with the Borla Touring? I've spent more time than I'd like to admit listening to different setups on the internet and still haven't heard anything I like better than the Borla Touring; it sounds terrific on their web site sound test and especially on the drive by. Sounds to me like a proper V8 and in line with the looks of the Raptor. Still would like to hear one live first but getting close to pulling the trigger with the Affirm financing option available.

    It would seem plausible that if a stock muffler is being replaced with an after-market muffler, there wouldn't be any increased drone. The exhaust system is not really being changed except for the muffler.

    Now if the exhaust pipes are being changed along with a muffler change, then, the potential for increased drone can be an issue.

    There is a lot more to drone than just muffler placement. For instance: Corsa only sells one aftermarket muffler, the placement of the resonator inlet of their muffler is important to drone mitigation and they can't control that without selling complete systems. To keep their reputation in tact they just don't sell mufflers individually. Muffler size, design, location, material, tubing diameter, exit location, number and type of bends, engine configuration, exhaust manifold, convergence type all contribute to the sound of an exhaust.

    Replace only the stock muffler with a flowmaster and I guarantee you will get drone.

    The very best thing to do is find someone local to you with the exhaust you think you want and go for a ride with them, get some cruise time in and a few full throttle assaults.
