shouldnt get a drone from just the de-cat mate for the ultimate pops and bangs get a downpipe aswell

Personally i found it unbearable at motorway speeds with the mongoose cat back. Had to go to Wales and back, a round trip of 300 or so miles, and took it off the next day.

I have a decat on my ST and boy does it drone. Last weekend i drove for about 2 hours non stop and by the end my ears were ringing just like my old clubbing days
. I do have the Piper system which is one of the loudest

Hi I have a milltek full system with decat and don't get any drone at any speed, so I would say its down to catback manufacturer more than decat or 3"downpipe.
This is when cruising at motorway speeds, when you put the engine under more load it gets louder obviously, hope this helps

Thanks for all the replies
I am not sure what to do then
The mongoose cat back just isn;t enough diff from the stock 1 for me,,
Would 1 of the 2 above help with the noise,
Ie just a de cat or just a frt pipe
Cheers

I no mate, I want too plus a better noise, but had an evo at 500bhp with 110db @ 4000rpm and had to get a quieter exhaust on after a few weeks as it drove me mad
