Borla ATAK Owners

Curious, I know the cat back is more aggressive, but how is drone? Any problems with it when music is at 15 or so and with the bluetooth?

I have Kooks LT's with the cat back S-types, is it worth switching the s-types out for the Ataks???
Is the sound any better to those who have done this?

Just from hearing the Atak drive by, I can tell you it is loud. I have never heard a loud exhaust that did not have some kind of drone. Volume and drone are like husband and wife..joined at the hip. I would say the exhaust is likely tolerable on a M6, but bad on an A6 because of the higher cruising RPM.

I usually drive around at 12 or 13, so you should be fine. I also use my Bluetooth phone all the time without any issues.

That's what I did. I still like the sound of the S-type, but like the ATAK even better. I also have Kooks headers.

It is loud, but not annoying. In regards to drone, it actually has less than my S-type did. Drone has a lot to do with tone, and since the S is deeper than the ATAK it has more. It's not bad at all, and my car is an auto.

Dangeruss, you have an auto with AFM tuned out, correct?

Yes. With any aftermarket exhaust I'd recommend tuning AFM out.

OK guys here is what you have been waiting for. I had the Borla ATAK catback system installed this morning by RPM Motorsports in Garner, NC. I drove it at highway speeds 70-75 and it is quiet in the cabin and loud outside, just the way it should be. I also drove around town with the windows down just to hear the sound and it is great! The idle now sound like a true Muscle Car. You can actually set the radio to volume 8 and hear it very well at highway speeds.
I couldn't ask for anything better. Thank you Borla and a special thanks to RPM Motorsports for the install They are a great bunch of guys

See..I have the S-type and headers on my car and it does not drone. Seems like everyone's definition of drone is different.

I definitely agree with that. I didn't think my S-type was bad at all, but others seem to think it's a huge deal.
