AR Catless Downpipes + Stock N54 Midpipes + Berk Muffler Delete = DRONE

Just thought I'd post this to help others as they setup their exhaust.

I have AR Catless Downpipes, stock Mids and a Berk Muffler Delete. The low to mid range (1-4K RPM) sound is awesome. It's smooth, it gurgles, it farts, it kicks ass. However, when you punch it (WOT), you might as well get the pots-and-pans out and join in. Holy "poop-balls" Batman is the drone intense!

Anyhow, next up are Berk mids. I'll update this thread to let you know if the sound improves.

Would you happen to have any clips of your exhaust setup in action?

Sorry. I don't have clips. I have AR cat-less downpipes stock mids and the berk muffler delete. Low to mid range is mean. On WOT it turns into a high-pitch, loud, can/drone sound. Thats all I can share. People have told me that berk mids will eliminate this. Lets see what happens. I'll post again once I get them in.
