Changing the stock X-Pipe to the Fabspeed setup with high flow cats results in dramatically healthier tone. Deeper. Louder. Less muffled. All with stock mufflers.
I then added the Eisenmannm Sport and it hits in you in the chest with tone.
It is crazy talk to think swapping stock X for this upgrade lessens rumble.
