    Never heard of people complaining about drone with magnaflow. Soundwise, magnaflow is considered a littler more tame than other catbacks.

    How did it sound after you changed the muffler. Was it any louder, quieter, or simply was the drone gone.

    what drone? i have magnaflow with LTs and ORY, and i have no drone. do you have a stick or auto? but if its too much for you, like stated earlier, just swap the muffler out.

    I've had a Borla, Mufflex 4", and an SLP Loudmouth on my 2000 SS. The Mufflex was the best of the three. The SLP was loud, not as much drone as you'd think. The Borla was by far the worst.

    Of course, with LT's you are allowing more air to flow through so drone tends to be a bit worse.
