Slightly more rasp for sure but the Magnaflow is deep sounding in the first place so a little rasp will create a nice, more balanced sound IMO. It's mostly noticeable in the top-end.

So, after some time to get to know the Magnaflow, I have come to realize that there IS some drone (resonation) between 2k and 2.5k rpm. It isn't terrible and not a dealbreaker...just be aware that it is there. I still love the sound otherwise, and I am planning to keep the Magnaflow on. I just need to turn the music up a couple notches

I saw in another post HERE that @andbudzi reported the ARK H test pipes helped to get rid of the majority of the drone in that range. Has anyone else experienced that? If so, that may just be my justification to get Test Pipes?

Yes got rid of most drone - normal acelaration. Still there if you say put pedal down to go fast while in low rpms.
For example, 6th gear driving 45, rpms around 1.8k, mash pedal half way, car don't have much go in 6th at that rpms - you get drone.

Crusing at 2.2 -2.5 definitely better. Seems to have more power low to mid rpms.

No rasp up hight, just nice gurgling sound all the way.

We'll see. You know I have to get approval from my "Financial Advisor" first.
