I did have some drone for the first 500-ish miles or so. It has since mellowed out some until I jump on it.

Doesn’t sound anything like my scenario - slight pedal at 2k rpm is really loud, coasting is nothing and anything above 2k is sweet sound

I posted No. I’ve had mine on since mid May. (has the Corsa Res delete before) If there is any drone I can’t hear it inside over the Toyo M/T’s. Drove 3 hours each way to the coast with the cruise set at 85 mph. Talked to the wife the whole way there and back. She said nothing and I didn’t notice. Normally I have music playing very loud and can’t hear anything except the music. Now I’m different in the way that I didn’t think it was loud enough even at WOT. Went with the SPD SS Catted DP’s and it’s a lot louder and there is a little drone at 2K, but nothing that bothers me one bit. I gotta say in Baja mode off-road with the rpm’s staying above 4K it screams now and I love it.
