IMO it is more important to do the mids than the muffler... I primarily did the muffler, some months after doing the mids, to reduce the drone and for the looks.

HPA sell MadDad mids for around $700, although big back orders on them now.
So in your experience the Maddad mids did not help reduce drone? I thought they would be similar in that sense like the N55, almost everyone reported reduced or disappeared drone.

I thought the drone disappeared, but actually still there at 1,800 rpm. That's workable for me though. MadDad & Remus combo is LOUD though!

Thanks, in my car drone is between 2000 to 3000 almost so any decrease would be great for highway cruising.

So.. you can NOT use the Remus midpipe on the stock 1M exhaust? or is there a way to make it work?

The racing replacement tube mid-pipes that I received from Remus and have installed on my car did not come with any adapters or flanges to bolt to the stock exhaust; you actually have to remove the flange that adapts the Remus exhaust to the stock mid-pipes for the Remus replacement tube to fit.

You can use the Remus exhaust with stock mid-pipes but not the Remus mid-pipes with stock exhaust, at least the one I received...

True, they sent me extra adaptors with the axle back

Is it any louder than stock especially at the mid to high RPM range?

louder but not enough for me!

it is a little louder and deeper than the stock but really not what I was looking for and definitely not as loud as other systems I have heard by sound pics here in the forum.

You can get deeper if you like with: REMUS Innovation, Austria, as a huge O.E.M. supplier to several top German car makers, especially BMW, is keenly aware that the system in front of the RS (Rear Silencer) is
generally quite good, as it is likely they built it. FS’s (Front Silencers) usually don’t have much in the way of back pressure, as all they’re intended to do is break up those high speed travelling sound waves.

So they tend to send quite a few axle back ‘splice on’ or ‘bolt on’ systems around the world. They also know that deleting an FS is childs play at most performance or even muffler shops. So if you need more sound go ahead and delete your FS w/ straight tubing or replace your front section with the REMUS RT (Race Tube).

Thanks for the advice

I decided to go through with your advice and eliminated the silencer and the mid cats with straight tube and the sound it's awesome!!! Tomorrow I will give it a big ride and try to upload a sound clip. BTW it only cost me $50 at my local shop for labor and stainless steel tube. Cheap DIY mid pipes its just the sound I wanted.

Well done. Sounds like the way to go.
Did you get much drone after eliminating the mid cats and silencer (resonator)?
