Yeah. It droned a bit though thatís why I got rid of it. The vibrant res setup sucked. Found an oem catback. Thinking about getting another Cobb TBE but getting the downpipe with a resonator this time around.

Yeah get a proper catback for sure. It was a fun experiment and it sounded cool for about a week, but I wouldnít recommend it unless rowdy was the sound you were after.

Well good Lord . I thought I was the only one . !!! I HAVE an apr Downpipe with a AWE catback. Let me say that's the perfect sleeper setup .

GREEDY me wanted more DSG gunshot sounds and louder exhaust . So I decided to cut up my precious AWE catback by doing a custom resonator delete . DO NOT DO IT

...tbh there was some good . My DSG sound in parking garages with the windows down would eventually make my own self go deaf ...love it ..and WOT sounds like a freaking racing machine . Love it . BUT

HONDA DRONE. At around 3.5k rpms is the worst drone I ever heard . And then again around 80ish mph. The only way to get around the first drone spot is to literally drive like a crippled grandma ...and I do Not drive slow atall so I always cross it .

I'm getting desperate . So my two options are ...to put on a vibrant resonator to Hopefully find the perfect louder sound . Or result in putting the original Aftermarket AWE resonator back on the catback.

Here's when I had a spm catted dp, vibrant 7192, and cut holes in stock muffler. Before I cut holes in the stock muffler, the vibrant made a very small difference in sound. Just a TAD deeper/louder/more day noise. I liked it

+1 for this setup I have an ecs catted downpipe with muffler delete and stock res, for now, sounds pretty good and if I'm just cruising I barely hear it going to swap resonators and put in the vibrant soon

I'm sure the vibrant would help with drone since it's supposed to make your car louder without any of the drones and raspiness
