I have installed Kooks longtubes with Hi-flo cats and a Borla cat back system with attak mufflers and do not have any drone. My car is just LOUD, on the interstate or at any speed it just purrs like a kitten. It is a 2014 SS L99. When it is wide open throttle it is obscenely loud....any way I love the sound

Disagree. Besides wanting a muscle car sound I wanted to keep it outside. Plus
my Camaro is quiet as a Cadillac on my many interstate trips. Depends on whats
important to you.

I have a magnaflow x pipe and drone like a motherf*cker... I thought it was good at first, then my gears brought my 6th gear highway RPM right into drone city at 70mph..

So, now I can either run in 5th....or speed!

This is just a start up of my system with no revs ...like you it just purrs until I get on it...then its ear splitting loud outside the car....but excellent inside.

I have the full Kooks 3in exhaust with Kooks headers.

That mofo drones pretty bad at somewhere around 2k rpm's at 68-70mph in 6th gear.

I bought two Kooks R300-14 3in bullet race mufflers to weld in the back half of the X Pipe.

The Caddy CTS-V guys do it that way and it works for them. Hope it works for me too!

Just look at posts like this over there: https://www.ctsvowners.com/forum/6-e...-mufflers.html

I have been driving with open headers for a year and a half and love it. No headaches, no tickets, no problems. I love the sound, but thats just me.

The x pipe adds back pressure, thus eliminating the drone....do this ^^^^
