I`ve just installed a pair of new Kleemann Headers with catless downpipes and X-pipe.
I noticed an improvement in performance, will check the changes on a dyno in a couple days, but I am not sure if I am happy with it or not.
Previously I had second cats and resonator removed, kept the 1st cats and fitted an X-Pipe. It was just right sounding, loud enough and with mellow burbling tone even revving high.
Now it is incredibly loud and have a trumphet kind of sound when floored. I know it still sounds amazing, but I am not sure if like being a nuisance for all the people around by having such a roaring monster.
I used to rev the engine using it everyday, I used to like to go a couple gears down and give it a pedal to the metal. But now I am driving much less manically trying to keep the revs below 3000.
What do you think, guys? Have anyone been through such a feeling? Should I try to get used to it?
If no, could installing a stock reso make it quieter but to keep the performance figures?
It is not the drone I don`t like, it is the actual beastly sound that scares a hell of me and people around
Here is the new video. In real life it is much much louder.
