I don't have any sound clips yet, but I will try to get some done soon... Kinda surprised to hear your challenge with OEM is raspy... Challenge sport with HFCs?

Previous setups were with stock X-pipe, so i really don't have basis for comparison. I've had AE axle back which i liked alot, but it was a little mild and Eisenmann Race, which i loved but couldn't take the drone.

My current setup falls somewhere in the middle...more exotic sounding. Minimal drone, if any...which was a must for me.
