reducing exhaust sound?

Sup guys, with a lethal H and ATAK's the sound is amazing. But at 3k rpm it really screams and will tame itself out if i let off the gas a bit. Any inexpensive way to reduce that particular part? Getting gears done tomorrow so I know that im gonna be revving way more. I tend to shift around 2.5 but not sure how thats gonna work out with teh new 4.10's. I dont wanna say its like bees in a can but its loud. And maybe like bees in a can lol.
But i really dont want to take off that h pipe or weld anything on there. Any suggestions? I was thinking of getting s-types or tourings but that is a last resort.

Now this is a new one; wanting to "snuff" some sound...
Without welding in resonators, your only choice would be to swap out the axle backs.

Guy buys race car. Makes race car louder. Now guy complains it's to loud. 👍👍🏻👍👍🏻

Just pulling your tail friend.

As stated before you can weld in resonators or change axle backs. Honestly though. Spend the money and weld in resonators. I guarantee you'll love the sound more. Plus it's cheaper than new axle backs. But if you swap axle backs let me know and I'll buy the Borlas from you. I got a buddy looking for some.

Lol I know what your saying. thing is when I got the ATAK's I didnt know how teh o/r H was gonna be lol. I like ti dont get me wrong but holy moly it can get crazy if you let it. Im gonna take a look at how much its gonna be to weld on some resonators then. Any estimates? Suggestions on good ones to make it as deep sounding as possible?

The longer the reso the deeper tone produced. Also the deeper you go the quieter the car might appear. Human ears hear high pitched noises more easily than deeper. So the deeper an exhaust gets the quieter it will sound. I would recommend 19-22" resonators. I'm using 21 and love it.

Price wise I think I paid 45$ a piece and welded them in myself. But a shop shouldn't charge you more than an hour labor. I did mine with jacks stands and it took me 15min a side between cutting fitting and welding up and leak tested them.

Get some Dynomax Race bullets and use them as resonators, it will take out some rasp, and tone down the sound a little bit, I have them on my set up and they have worked wonders.
