The drone was noticeable in the beginning. After 4k miles, the drone is still noticeable (but very seldom) at 2 -3k rpm and cold start. I have grown used to it. The Akra Slip/Challenge Street x-pipe combo is definitely one of the quieter setups out there.
I have put some thought into the ESS tune. Maybe sometime in the near future!
did you ever upload a video?
