not bad but it is definitely there...and at times can get annoying but again it is only in the range of about 1800 RPMS so it is pretty easily avoidable.
It is my understanding that once you take out the stock resonator, that's when the drone problem will/might surface. Other posts are right in that some people are more sensitive to drone than others. AFM does not cause drone. It will just amplify whatever drone you may already be hearing.

I wold love to know if there is anyone out there that has personally heard both the Borla S-Type and the Stainless Works Retro Chambered catback with LTs. I have never heard anything close to the wonderful deep rumbling of the SW system but I am concerned about the volume with LTs. I would prefer not to buy multiple exhaust systems to find what I'm looking for.

Definitely louder on a cold start. Also could not rev too loud as people in my apt complex were having a picnic like right in front of my car...didnt want to be too much of a dick.

Sounds great! I appreciate the sound clip. I think I'll probably bite the bullet and order up the S-type axle back and what she sounds like and if I can live with the drone. Not excited about that to be honest. Oh well

If I remember I will try to make a clip of what the inside sounds like during a "drone" scenario....

It's really not bad and if u don't like lol either go faster or slower to get out of that specific rpm range (in my scenario I just down shift ).

I really have no idea what people mean when they say the ATAK with headers is too loud. Idk, I LOVE loud haha. Maybe thats just me. But I think the atak with headers/high flows or whatever you do sounds nasty and perfect. No drone, and just sounds mean. Muscle car baby!
