He took out all of the insulation and perforated piping, and removed the H pipe, so its basically a straight pipe setup running through the mufflers. For some reason, the addition of the muffler through the pipes eliminates the drone. FWIW, I do have my main cats on, with the secondaries deleted.

Video up later!

Which shop did you go to?

Very nice man. I'm excited. Looking forward to the video. How close do you think it sounds to the PE?

Well Ive heard the PE a couple of times from outside. From inside my ride, sounds a little deeper. Sounded great when I got on the throttle. Rainy all day, so I will do a drive by, idle and revving video tomorrow.

From my camera scope research that is correct. No perforated holes at all.

Did you see the difference in the left muffler? Did it have a resonator sort of thing that's shown in the pictures of the thread where in guy opened the oem muffler up

They dont care at all about cat back exhaust so I dont see how this could be any different.

Very nice! How much would this all cost? Do you think it'd still sound just as good without the secondary cat delete?

I was asking if the PE has the resonator?! Do you have any pics and have you removed all the packing inside? Also how's the drone?

Not yet. It was already done when I got there. But I took a look in. Straight pipes on both sides and no h pipe. Crackles and burbles like crazy when cruising!
