And let the rasp begain...

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

I have been doing research on this for the last week trying to figure out if an H pipe give me the sound I am after. I have the Borla S axle back on my 13 gt/cs. It has a little bit of raspy, poppy sound when I down shift. I dont mind it terribly but have been looking into a way to reduce it a little and get a real nice DEEP burble rather than the raspy. I know X pipes are more "racey" sounding and H are more classic sounding but since our cars come factor with H pipes. Would an aftermarket like Heartthrob, MBRP, or JBA really make that big of a difference? I don't really want/need it to be louder I just want the deep classic sound and lose some of the rasp.

I plan on keeping my cats as well. I don't know if cat back H and over the axle pipes would be an option as well? Other than more volume of exhaust moving through the pipes would going to a 3 in system change the tone at all?

SORRY OP not trying to hijack your thread. Just thought it better to throw it in here rather than open another thread.

That really depends. I have the Magnaflow Competition catback and with the stock H pipe, it didn't sound that stellar. The X pipe cleaned it up and maintained the deep aggressive note.

No, that small of an increase won't really do anything. Replace your resonators with a mid straight through muffler (make sure it is a true muffler, that means packing, not just a resonator) like the Pypes M80. Be warned it will most likely quiet things down, too.

Exhaust sound is such a very subjective thing. For me I wanted something that was deep and could maintain some level of civility so as not to attract tons of attention if I didn't want it, but that would turn heads when the time is right. I have been through several different combinations of mid-pipes, cats, cat deletes and axle backs. My final set-up has achieved my goals. MRT-performance Catted H-pipe, removed resonators and replaced with 2.5" dynomax bullets, and finished it off with the bassani street race axle backs.

Good luck in the iterative process of finding what works for you.

It tamed and deepened the sound at idle and part throttle, and reduced some of the racecar rasp over 4K.
