Some Pics. Powder coated gray. As for drone I really don't know what I'm listening for. Can someone explain? It so loud I'm almost embarrassed sitting in traffic especially the smell. No one has flipped me off yet or yelled at me though.

basically its that steady cabin noise from the exhaust as compared to stock.

Eloy fired his m3 with the full GTM installed, it sounds like a freakin beast but it is loud as hell! so loud that it drowned out my m3 with the full GTC system lol Eloy said it both have the same HP output tho.

You got it done at SDtint right? Travis did my full RPI GTM, it was fun for 2 days then it gets annoying and i sold it lol.

I want to hear this GTC, it suppose to be 25% quieter.

Yep Travis did all my work at SDMotorsports/SDTint. He said the GTM is so freakin loud and I was the first GTC install which he said is quieter. For 25% quieter who knows its so loud. Lets meet up.

Everyone as for the drone...its there. The harder I mash the gas the louder.

I have an appt for a Dinan tune next week. I don't have an engine light error so it doesn't matter I want to get rid of the cold start/limiter and free up the extra 8-10 hp.
