-RPI x-pipe with OEM/ACM exhaust mod?-

I can't seem to find anything with the search option let alone I can't really find anything on youtube either... Was wondering how the sound quality was? I've heard how this setup sounds in person with a completely stock exhaust/muffler. And honestly not digging the raspy/pinging notes it gives off, but I absolutely love how the OEM/ACM exhaust mod sounds just by itself. I just wanted something more louder while maintaining that V8 rumble that the exhaust mod gives off.

And for anyone wondering why, I happen to like the OEM muffler look hence why I just want to change out the x-pipe. Any feedback or other choices from experience will be appreciated.

You can do a search but people will tell you that a catless x-pipe with the OEM exhaust mod is extremely raspy and generally sounds like shit. If you're looking for more volume, I'd probably go catless x-pipe with either a stock, unmodified muffler or something similar.

I found out today... Sounds awesome but EXTREMELY loud... Sounds like the RPI GTM exhaust... Looking into a used muffler as we speak, lol.
