SW Retro Chambered Catback + J Pipes

Since getting the cam the 1900ish rpm drone has gotten pretty loud. Anyone ever try j pipes to reduce drone on the exhaust?

Kevin, I know several people who have added the SOLO J pipes to cure this. The stock mufflers have a similar setup inside them to reduce drone. It does work.

J pipes will work on the SW Retro Chambered Catback.

Having the same issue on the highway. it vibrates my head.
I am looking at adding a J pipe to my current Kooks setup
Would be nice If someone actually made a kit rather then building it from scratch.
It looks like 29.5 inch length is the right length for mine

I have no Cats and added a 9 inch race muffler to the header collector That did nothing for the drone
