the drone hurts my wifes ears...

And it is becoming annoying to me lately now that I have a cam. I am tempted to put the factory cat back back on my car since it is sitting in the back yard ready to go. Any other ideas.

I really love the way my car sounds but cruising up a hill can get really loud.

Edit: Does anyone have a video of a car with headers highflow cats and the factory exhaust?

Magnaflow 3" cans really quiet the noise down. Much quieter then flows. You could also add bullet mufflers inline with your current catback.

The factory exhaust will sounds great with LT headers and high flow cats, and eliminates the drone, Your wife will love you again LOL.

Easy fix. Every time she complains about the drone, play an audio tape of her talking and tell her, "Now you know how I feel!"
