I would strongly look into Solo! Good mellow sound, strong sounds at WOT, and no drone. I think that would be a happy medium for youLet give a bit of background which may help. I am in my late 40's so I am not looking for anything too loud, but the stock is too quiet. Something a bit over stock is what I am really looking for.
Online the Borla touring sounds like just the ticket, I would really love to hear something other than the Borla produced clips.
Driving an automatic on the freeway is no fun with the Borla exhausts because of the drone. The ATAK vibrates through the entire frame of the vehicle and you can feel it as well as hear the drone. The Touring has a quieter but irritating drone between 1,900 & 2,400 RPMs. I think you can make phone calls with the Touring, but you'll still get irritated with the drone.RT Randy thank you for the feedback. Outside the car is it similar to the Borla video?
The majority of my driving is highway at 69 to 74mph with the auto trans, this puts me between 2200 to 2400rpms.
I make business calls all day, is it loud on the interior at that range?
When I refer to drone I am referring to the resonance that is within the exhaust system. It is significant enough with the Borla ATAK to vibrate the cabin. With the Touring it was mostly just a very irritating noise, a lot less actual vibration. Yes it has a harmonic frequency that is related to the engine RPMs, but I'm not sure what your question is about that.When you say drone, are you referring to the harmonic frequency which just sounds well.....annoying?
Typically this frequency has a narrow band, 1900 to 2400 seems like a wide spread. It it only when MDS is on? If it is I could drive in 5th gear manually I think to avoid it.
