    Duals to loud

    I know i'll get flack but here goes, My z28 has duals on it and it sounds good punching it but on my commuting drives the thing puts out this drone that's really hard on the ears, I want to keep them, just want to know if someone has had any luck with resonators etc.
    Mufflers on it now are 18" magnaflow bullets 3", 2.5" under axle
    When I get this done the new exhaust wil go over the axle, as it sits now setup doesn't look very clean.
    Here is the setup now

    here it is before exhaust went under axle if you turn up the volume, you can feel/hear that drone in the beginning of the rpm bands that I am talking about.

    Sounds good but it's that drone I need to get rid of while cruising, does over the axle help tone it down a bit? It would be amazing if it did.

    A different muffler might help. Where are yours located now?

Looking back probably should have seen if he was okay

    I'm to young to need hearing aids. The drone is more than just the noise it vibrates the shit out of the interior getting up to speed.

    No cats and yah they would help tone it down. Here in Cali it is illegal to move the stock position of the cats, so I figured why bother paying the extra

    It sounds awesome especially at WOT, i know what you mean about drone although none of my cars have had TD's so my drone was probably not as bad as yours it gets annoying after a while. Funny thing is ive used magnaflow on 5 of my past cars and it does produce drone, could be you would have to go a different route and ditch the magnaflows. Either way GL

    Ok, mines just about the same set up


    Try buying some sound deadening material and putting it in the trunk, thats what im probably going to end up doing. If you do it right it should cut down on cabin noise.
