Its just a test mule. 2014 front clip (likely minus hood) and bed on a 15 cab. Likely something other than 6.2 under hood.

Just a quick report after running this exhaust for 18 months or so.

It cut the in cab noise down at least 75%. I just didn't like how mellow it got outside the cab.

This is the best I could do with my phone. It is hard to get good audio capture on a regular consumer device like this.

Yes, I noticed this as well. I get the best mileage (if I keep my foot out of it) running the Roush kit. If I add the stock resonator back in it drops back down to what I was getting with the full...

I guess the "drone" is subjective. When I first installed the exhaust I thought it was great. Then I hit the interstate and spent time between 1800 and 2000 RPMs. Not so great. :)

Yeah..I'm playing with the idea of selling it and trying again later. The Solo units look nice, and with the J-Pipe they might deal with the drone a bit better.

Well.... I went back the other way. I pulled the MBRP resonator out. I didn't realize just how much it changed the tone. Without the resonator it is much more aggressive. As for any drone in...

Just a warning. The MBRP isn't going to knock it down much...it will just take the edge off. It still really screams in the upper RPM's. It was enough to get it tolerable for me.

I was just the opposite. The longer I drove it without the resonator, the less I liked it.

I installed the 3" MBRP and I still think it was the right choice. If I ever change my mind I can...

Yeah, the drone was just bit much for me. I threw the stock resonator back on and it killed too much sound. Still sounded good, just too muffled. I purchased an MBRP 3" resonator online with a new...

That is why I liked the Roush. It doesn't look like every other exhaust system.

To each his own I guess.

Agreed. It is the drive by wire/torque management system that is getting you. You don't actually get 100% throttle opening until something north of 4000 RPM's.

A tuner can remove that...

Underbody shields eco vs 5.0

I'll try. It is so hard to get a good sound clip. I reviewed my clips of Roush vs OEM resonator and they sound so close....but in reality they were not.

I'm not exactly sure what you are going for here. You talking about cutting it off right behind the rear axle and then doing a hidden tip? If that is it, you *might* be able to. However, it runs...
