L99 and Borla Exhaust...

I did a search and went through a boat load of threads but didn't see any concrete answers.

For those with an L99 and Borla exhaust, how is the drone if any in or out of AFM mode?

Thanks!

I can hear it kick on, but no significant drone.

Cheers.

are you running the aggressive or touring borla kits? Dont know if it would make any difference, but according to the online salesman at Borla, he said we would get drone if you use AFM on the L99 engine.

Does anyone have any video of a stock camaro with L99 engine and AFM modified with Borla exhaust?

Reason I was asking was that I was planning on installing Corsa exhaust since they state that theres dont have any droning and 19 percent increase in volume. But the few I have heard of stated that the Corsa is pretty quiet for a custom exhaust until you romp it.

There are a lot of nice exhaust out there.

Borla most of the time does have drone for Automatics. My C6 is very a lot of drone in the 1300-1600 range.

The Camaro does not seem to be affected because it is a larger car and a lot more metal covering it.

Corsa are nice but much to raspy for my taste. I have had 3 Corsa exhausts over the years. They are much less drone on a normal car.

That is what I want. Still quieter when driving and idling with no drone. When I get on it I want it to be heard then. I love how my LMR CAI makes a big difference in sound when I romp on it but the car still sounds the same when I am not. The 97 Z28 was loud all the time and it got old.
When we drive from Houston to San Antonio I want a nice smooth quiet ride. When I am driving to and from work or play I want people to hear it as I do get on it quite often.
