Re: Modding my 5.7L

flowmaster has drone. powerstick doesnt.

the powerstick will sound like a catback with a 5.7l.
when you rev it it will be loud and full with no annoying drone like trucks have with flowmasters.

highway will sound nice and vibrant without a throaty drone sound.

depends... do you want powerful full sounding exhaust or something that just gives it a little purr?

See that's the real question, because exhaust IMHO is in the eye of the beholder. What may sound full on the highway to you might be drone to me. Probably why I'm going to end up with the Gibsons. There are enough picky people on here with Gibsons that don't complain about drone and love the sound. WIN WIN for me.
