It's a very narrow range of rev that drones. I can understand DCT-cars with their cruising RPM around 2k may have issue, but 6-speed, you learn to cruise above that RPM and it's a total joy.
I can't praise enough of these pipes. Also, anyone having fitment issue, should try loosing the pipe where it connects to x-pipe and just rotate. I didn't have to use blow-torch to modify anything.
Either way (Megan or CNT) should do the trick as I'm all for inexpensive exhaust pipes, but Megans seem to have more fitment issue that requires bending the pipes - which I dread.
Well, I have a DCT. I am going to wait for a Megan next year or just not both with a new exhaust. Constant drone and a loud exhaust is not my idea of fun.
