That's that farty bee sound. He has the exact same exhaust set up except he doesn't have a magnaflow xpipe and he has an injen intake. (BBK headers, Magnaflow axelback)

I have the res x pipe and 2 magnaflow mufflers and it sounds REAL smooth and deep. Unfortunately, it's pretty quiet. That's what headers are for.

What kind is it, the axelback? I myself haven't installed my headers or xpipe but I am really trying to avoid any kind or raspyness, riceyness or just plain fartyness.

Go to the LFX forum, I've got a thread about my magnaflow...no rasp just smooth sound!

I got them from muffler shop that installed them. They're just the mufflers so I had to buy the tips.

I have no rasp or drone except when the engine starts lugging. My friends said it sounds like it's all bass. Lately, I've been able to hear the cracking on the downrevs that the V8s usually have.

Actually I don't know what you mean...my setup with the resonated X has a nice low tone and actually sounds great at low rpms. Not rice.

What are you listening to this through if you don't mind me asking? If you aren't listening to this through something that can reproduce low bass I suggest you do just that. Otherwise I guess my ears are just hearing something different than you because I hear no "fart" in this. There is some rasp up top though, which the resonated X pipe would remove.

Actually if you want to hear pretty close to what a BBK + magnaflow X + Magnaflow oval body mufflers sound like, give these videos a whirl (itsOBX LTs in these):

I often thought about the sounds of the exhaust system everyone has and how they record the sounds. For me sitting at idle and revving the engine for the sound really doesn’t make or break a good sound. I don't know to many who do that while driving.
Personally I think one should make a sound clip while traveling at full throttle thru the gears. IMHO.

For example. This is my favorite sound clip. Then again I am a little partial too.

First off any car sitting at idle sounds nice, and listening through, my speakers and my Sony PS3 headphones that set up sounds terrible. Listen to it at 50 seconds. It doesn't sound like a muscle car, sports car or import. It has a farty rasp which is rice. The axel backs are different from your oval mufflers so there is no comparison. I wish I saw this video before I made the purchase. When I get my headers installed I hoping the x-pipe will clean up that terrible noise. The OBX set up sounds decent but I would like to hear it rev in neutral.

Most cars sound better than they actually are under load.

I know a lot of people think louder = more performance but our cars are NOT V8's. Avoiding Rasp/Fart is a must for our little V6's. The Magnaflow X pipe is needed for our cars especially with axelbacks and headers. I will never understand the guys rocking raspy/farty exhaust systems for our cars..

Really makes us V6 owners look like a bunch of tools.

From all of this info I think I will put my pennies away for the Corsa cat + BBK LT's

I'm going to wait till warranty is up. My dealership work shop isn't so friendly.

Does anyone out there have that set-up?

Except most driving doesn't occur at full throttle. Though I don't recommend revving your engine all the time as that is kind of stupid it gives you an idea what your vehicle will sound like at moderate driving.

This guy does if you can stand his Tokyo drift music, you don't get to hear his exhaust until 2.20 in the video.

I listened to those videos using my car's speakers since I don't have any headphones right now. All I can say is "wow".
