AR design DP's catless vs catless res vs race cats?

Hi guys just thought i would ask your advice on ARs dps.

Im gonna stick some on soon, probably will be getting a eisnemann race alongside it.

I know the fully catless DP's are very raspy, which i dont mind about, havent heard them in person, but i live in a small close neck subberban area so i dont really want to piss off anyone haha.

Does anyone have the catless with resonators either stock muffler or not.

Just wondering what the difference is in tone, does it make it less raspy/more subtle?

Same goes for race cats? whats the difference in tone?

the sound/raspiness/drone depends on what you have after the dps. I can tell you that the eisenmann RACE is VERY LOUD and even with stock dps it drones inside the cabin.
I would suggest you get the Eisenmann Street instead.

i have tested many setups and best is catless dps , midcats and a good muffler setup that is not too loud.

Thanks for the reply bud, I love the deep roar of the race so ill still go with it, do you mean keep the stock mid pipe and have catless dps?

If you want to get the Eisenmann race.... I would def. recommend the resonated pipes.
