That would be my guess. I think it's because the decible level coming from directly under the car reverberates throughout the car. It does sound great outside the car.

I actually heard a AW e93 w/ the muffler delete earlier this week. The car sounded great as it drove passed me. I turned around and spoke w/ the owner who said that he didn't experience a noticeable drone, and that it really wasn't too loud inside the cabin. It also wasn't obnoxiously loud when he drove passed me. He simply ran pipes from the 2nd cats to the rear of the car and had the magnaflow quad tips at the end of the pipes. The note sounded much deeper, and while I only heard the vehicle at around 40mph, I gotta believe that WOT it would be quite loud...and nice.

However, is there a possibility of a HP loss w/ the muffler delete? I confess that I am ignorant when it comes to back pressure and how it affect HP, or possible valve damage.

Any thoughts on the muffler delete?

I hear you gain a couple hp
but lose a few lb ft, but the tq line gets straighter
I forgot who it was, but someone posted that result

How about putting a cut-out right before the 2nd cat and resonator?

You would be bale to switch between fully straightpiped and stock, or anywhere inbetween.

So if you leave it at halfway stock/straightpiped, wouldnt i keep enough backpressure for power but sound good as well?

This is correct, I did this when I first got my car. Dynoed the car and I gained like 7hp and lost 1ft lb. from stock. However the Tq line was higher all the way thru with muffler delete, the stock tq. line just peaked a higher tq. number. It sounded ok I guess, some drone but a little to muscle car ish for me. U cant feel the gains, it just shows on the dyno.

Thanks for the info. Drone is really my biggest concern since I do mostly highway driving around 3-4k in 6th. By most accounts I would be above the worst of the drone. I'll probably mess around with this in a month or so w/ my db meter too.
