Drone Elimination!

In the Cobra when driving at high way speeds the exhaust has that annoying drone. My Dad put on a MagnaFlow catback system and wanted to know if he could put a different muffler (he was thinking Blora) on to stop the drone?

Re: Drone Elimination!

If you want zero drone stay away from the chambered style mufflers (flowmaster, magnaflow, quiet borla, etc). It's going to be louder is the negative side effect of a straight through style muffler.

I know on my car I can cruise 1-2 mph lower or higher than normal and eliminate 75% of the drone on the highway. Might want to play with the cruise rpm's to see if you can get it bearable that way.

Re: Drone Elimination!

Well since this isnt a thread about "what spoiler should i put on" it will get over looked like all other threads of important matters. but i do have the answer and literature to back it up with. Dynomax VT and Corsa dB mufflers are claimed to be drone free by the manufactor. - MM&FF September 2010 issue.

That is not necessarily the whole truth, it is usually slow around here on the weekends especially this time of year. A lot of people browse during the week.

That is one reason I have yet to install them is the drone factor.
