Your car looks very nice & mean. I like the lower hanging pipes, reminds me of the exhausts on the cobra terminators

no, stock is super quiet. there will be quite a difference between deletes and stock. like LexusNN says, there is drone at 2 rpm. so depending on what gear or incline of the road, it will drone, seems worse in the hot weather and quiet as a mouse on cold or rainy days. Most v8s with exhaust drones in my experience when you take off mufflers. as long as interior panels dont rattle, it doesn't bother me one bit.

Lexus has great sound insulation, my interior is fairly quiet even with a loud exhaust setup. Occasionally I get an interior rattle on cold start.
