All these exhaust clips are great, but nobody is saying anything about drone inside the cars. Are any of you having issues with that? That's one thing I have to watch out for because my wife seems to be really sensitive to that when we're at highway speeds. I LOVE a good, deep exhaust note, but gotta keep the family happy now too! Funny, when I met my wife I drove a 91 Chevy 1500 with a 350 bored out to a 383, supercharged, with long tube headers, and a custom built all aluminum Dynomax exhaust system. She used to know I was coming to get her before I even turned on her street. Now, everything has to be nice and quiet for family adventures... Little does she know that will change again...

Dynomax VT is the best solution for drone on the market. I plan on getting some one day, just not now i don't have to worry about a family yet lol. And yes i have said many times (prolly not in this thread) that I have issues with drone. Typically all chambered mufflers (flowmaster for example) will drone quite a bit. There are many other variables though (pipe size/bends/cats or not... you know the list!), which is why most of the time you just have to try it to know what you like for sure.

Just looked that up online. Hadn't heard of that before. I like it!! Dynomax always gave me the performance and sound I wanted without too much drone or unnecessary "loudness for the sake of loudness". I can't stand a car/truck that makes a ton of noise even when it isn't going anywhere fast. If my vehicles make noise, they're going somewhere and the reason you hear it is because you're looking at the tailpipes!

Exactly, and the best part is that it works with other things such as longtube headers but still keeps that drone away. In my opinion it makes it the PERFECT sleeper muffler

I wanna hear one if those mufflers in person because my buddy has a c6 with the gmpp performance exhaust which is the z06 exhaust that has the same technology as the dynomax mufflers. (confusing, i know, sorry). Haha curious how it sounds.

yea sorta lol i mean the dynomax's aren't quite as sophisticated, they only open because of airflow where as the corvette's are electronically controlled to open after ~3000 rpm.

My 3000 post sound off has a clip from inside the Caprice at about 45-50 mph. There is drone. The windows are down though, so you will hear that as well.

here it is, if y'all wanna hear it;

Thanks Man. Unfortunately about 50% of the roads here are dirt, accept for the main highways patrolled by the State Troopers. Once I get back on the road, I am gonna take Barricade out for a spirited ride on the GOOD roads and maybe get some video of that too.
