Main questions are noise and highway drone. I know it sounds a lot better outside the car. My questions remain in the interior. It's for my NA V70. It will compliment my manual very well with the backfire sounds.

I'll have to try it. I've heard both sides of the story. Plus I have access to a Borla XR-1 I want to put in the car if the resonator isnt enough

That is true. I'm excited to try it. Just hope at highway speed it doesn't drone

Jokes :p

I hear yea. I find my setup is fine if my XC is lightly loaded, but when I'm hauling around a trailer or the canoe and camping gear it can get quite loud even at cruise, but I don't mind.

I'd think minimizing drone on your NA would be tough without baffles or a proper straight through resonator. Turbos help muffle a lot of the noise along with cats.

Will get one tomorrow at the tailpipe before resonator is removed. Also want to get one of the open system.

Been on the youtubes......muffler or resonator delete? Muffler sounds dirty on the 140 hp engine (some euro guys were running it). No finds on the resonator delete

I'd stick with a resonator delete and if it's not loud enough, change the muffler. I'm not a fan of muffler deletes

Decided on the muffler. Sounded real nice.
