No one would, but if you said drone adds HP, or you can opt for the quieter exhaust with less HP output because its more restrictive... now how many would opt for drone?
Every car I have owned started some sort of drone when the exhaust was opened up. Did I like it? Usually no, would I go back?? Emphatically no, not after the gains I received, plus I think my MPG increased. Oh ya add to that the drone exhaust sounds better at all the other RPMs and gears when its not droning.
Adding power has side effects.
