Just got the Borla touring axle back put on this morning and I'm really disappointed with it.
I've read that the x pipe quiets it down a little more, can anyone "locally" confirm that???

I have a magnaflow X-Pipe where the H-Pipe was and straight shot out. Removed the resonator and mufflers. Sound is great. Not loud at all unless you get on it. IMO very good sound for very little money.
If you left the resonator on that is where all your sound is drowning out.

It is just the axle back and it has a real nasty resonating/drone sound in 6th gear running about 60-70mph

I wanted to keep it quiet, and I didn't see how adding the x pipe would help since it takes off the factory resonator.

look up the Helmholtz fix in the forums. Its a way to add a J pipe to your muffler and kill the drone. I've noticed someone complaining about the drone for every type of muffler when they hit the 2k rpm range.

i have a resonated xpipe with my Flowmaster exhaust.
Ive been told it is quieter, a tad deeper and less raspy than just with the exhaust.
Sometimes i wish it was louder, but hey its a V6 and i didnt want the high pitch!!

I actually found that thread earlier.
There has to be something wrong with my exhaust, because there's no way this is right.
I mean this drone is almost as loud as the GT I had and it had LT headers, no cats or resonators, just a s-type borla muffler.

I found a thread in the bolt-on section where other guys are saying they have a drone too.
