Smile PERFECT IS250 AWD Exhaust Setup - ZERO Drone, Deep Tone

After struggling for weeks tinkering with my exhaust trying to produce a no drone deep true V6 sound I finally hit the mark.

Stage 1: F-Sport Axle Back (By itself = too much drone, too high pitched for the cabin of a luxury car DD)

Stage 2: Removed secondary cats - Replaced them with Vibrant 12" Bottle Resonators (More flow and more of a rifling V6 sound but still a lot of drone between 2500-3000)

Stage 3: Game changer - Replaced the single stock muffler resonator with a straight through 14" long 6" across Magnaflow muffler (3 mufflers in total you say? YES!)

The result is the way luxury sport sedan should sound. If you have a girlfriend, wife, kids or are just over the high pitched annoying exhaust bit. Do what I have done. Don't think about it, just do it.

Thanks for sharing! Lots of people (including me) contemplated experimenting with the AWD mid pipe but never got to it.

Got a sound clip?

Any drone is too much when you pay over a G for an axle-back. There's no way F-Sports roll off the lot sounding like that, no one over 25 would buy one.

I'll try to post a sound clip soon.

Good advice on making your mean exhaust family friendly, since that's what your going for...

I like my Greddy Spectrum Elite. Nice deep bassy tone when stepping on the accelerator. No drone while cruising if you don't press the gas pedal beyond 40%. Under light throttle, it just gives a nice purr.

Subscribed like the others for sound clip and which specific magnafow muffler you put in. My case is a bit different, i have the F-sport exhaust but I want it a bit louder but not adding too much drone.

Anyone want to buy an F-Sport Exhaust for a super discounted price? lol
I got in a minor accident and it got dented; but my insurance covered it so I got a new one and just kept the old dented one..

And I love the F-Sport exhaust + Intake combo, esp. at high rpm
