Also, If there was any drone or increase of whatever drone my stock 1M originally had, I never noticed it. Certainly NOTHING like a Meisterschaft exhaust in volume or drone.
This is what I loved about this exhaust: At normal driving speeds the sound is just a bit louder than stock (except on start-up) but with a much richer tone and deceleration burble. However, once you gun it and chase the redline it takes on a beautiful exotic-like tone that rises in pitch and volume with the RPMs. I think that unique quality has something to do with the higher resonating frequency of titanium as compared to steel.
Out of all the things that I will miss about my 1M I think that it's the glorious Ferrari-like sound it would make when rocketing to redline that I will miss the most.
Good info. So you ran it with the stock catted midpipes. Is that correct?
