Anyone running stock dp's, stock axleback with aftermarket midpipes?

As the title says...I searched but didn't find anything. Please say if you have this configuration and let us know how it sounds and performs.

Thanks!

Apparently it sounds absolutely amazing. I am picking up the berk technology mid pipes from kirkx5m next tuesday so I will try to get out and get some videos of the sound.

In his words

"Berk Technologies midpipes. One of my favorite mods as the sound from just the midpipes swap with the OEM setup is pretty intoxicating"

I had CP-E resonated mid pipes on an otherwise stock exhaust system, it sounded decent, a bit throatier and louder but not by too much. No noticeable drone IIRC.

my Butt dyno didn't notice any difference in performance but this might have been because the car was FBO and had just been put back to almost stock to get a new HPFP. lol car felt pretty soft after having driven it with 100+ more hp.

Car was an 09 w/N54

Check my other thread post just now. No clip b/c it sounded identical to N55 with catless downpipe.
