I do... It is quite droney around the 2.5K-3K range...

I originally had the stock mufflers on and no drone.

I stuffed steel wool in both the inner pipes and drone was gone but sound level is slightly louder than stock mufflers.

Since I got used to it pulled the wool out of one of side and there is drone accelerating up hills but nothing cruising.

STi Quads are on with the Xforce dump & mid....

Ok, so I personally think there is a difference of opinion of what 'Drone' is.... I consider 'Drone' to be a reverberating noise at a constant speed..... & the STi Quads do not do that.

Yes they have a different sound that resonates at different speeds but drone? Not to me.

The Quads to me are perfectly acceptable as is bolted up to Xforce SS dump & mid. A lot more raspy sounding then the xforce mufflers. I actually really like the sound.... I might be getting old though :dontknow: :?

Good to hear you are happy with a simple swap. As you say exhaust note is very much a personal opinion.

:lol: ok ok..... I spoke to soon....

Quads with xforce dump & mid are terrible in 4th gear on the auto. Great note on acceleration but the second it kicks into 4th at a constant speed it sort of slowly starts to kill you and..... And well basically its farked.

Going to my the fabricator tomorrow to get a res put in the mid pipe.

Just keep accelerating then. Problem solved :mrgreen:

Does the mid-pipe already have one resonator? Either way, don't overlook the chance to fit in as many resonators as will fit (eg 2) and using louvred resonators

So this is basically what went on it (mine was bigger) the other day and it was still bad. So basically a mid muffler does not work.... It made the car quieter on take off though.

So I've put the Xforce mufflers back on and they are a heap quieter on take off now too. So they are staying on! Really spewing to be honest because the quads look awesome, I really liked the look of them on the car. I may look into changing the single tip on the Xforce to a dual.

If you really want the quads, get yourself a packet of these https://www.bunnings.com.au/sabco-profe ... k_p4460722, cut one in half and stuff each half deep in the inner 2 tips.
Will kill the drone and wont affect any flow...

Im not a fan off shoving **** into an exhaust but...... I may aswell give it a go.

So when you say 'in the inner 2 tips'... Do you mean from the rear of the car the 2 closest to the towbar on each muffler?

Exactly... Push it in as far as it can go
