I currently have kooks long tubes with a hallowed out cat setup with kooks mufflers. its 3 inch all the way back.

I need to stick with 3 inch but it drones like a MFER

Try a resonated x pipe, should help with drone.

Corsa has a 3” system and they’re said to be drone free. Also, you might look into Solo’s J pipes. They cancel out resonate frequency so that the car won’t drone.

Replace cats...or...resonated x pipe....and/or...I have Borla Touring mufflers. Granted the touring mufflers are quieter, but have a nice deep mellow sound..and no drone.
Good luck.

No x pipe? It will sound and perform so much better and reduce drone

Axle back? Only cat backs are made for the 2010. Or that’s all I have found.

You need mufflers that produce a higher tone. Spintech sounds great Corsa or Borla are good as well. But those Spintechs sound nasty. They are loud tho.

Does Corsa even sell an axle back for our cars? I have looked for the Xtreme mufflers in an axleback version but all I ever seem to find is full catback setups.
