Had my Stromung since the previous group buy, but am ready to install IE long tube headers now and would like to keep the sound as it is now. If I ditch the cat and replace with resonator I'm hoping it will not be raspy or drone. You have anyone who has done this?

Also, will you be running dual pipes all the way from headers to the Stromung? Most resonators are single in/out, so what are you planning?

I have a Magnaflow resonator, initially, I had an X pipe but it was too loud.

And the sound is good? (Relative, I know)

Is that resonator the lowest point on the car now?

Which Magnaflow is that?

It is low, I have to go over speed bumps slowly. It's a resonated X, not sure the model, the muffler guy had it.

It was odd. At freeway speed and over idle/getting out of first the X was ok, but at idle and off the line it was really horribly loud.

Now it is ok where it was a problem and the same in upper gears.

they are JUST finishing the last of the 325 exhausts. Some 318 exhausts should have already started but they will likely now start the rest of them. Ping Scott for more details, but he is SWAMPED with work (which is good for everyone), so he may not get back to you too quickly

Shout out to LateE30 for putting this whole thing together. I don't know how I got lucky with an early shipment, but I returned from Europe yesterday and installed the new exhaust. Stomung has impressed.

+1 to Late. Thanks for setting this up.

Couldn't get this to play from r3v. So here is the link for anyone having the same problem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWC-zbOKPZg


Thanks Mike for posting a before/after. Sounds and looks great!
