Hey guys, ive already pulled the rear resonator ff the standard exhaust, and i like how it sounds
theres just one problem. whenever it gets over 3000 rpm and my foots in a fair way, it whistles like a jumbo jet.
ive heard that it is the flexi pipe exhaust, and so im contemplating removing it. is this true?

also, im also thinking about getting the center muffler pulled off too. just to give the note a bit of roughness. has anyone done or know of someone who has done this?
thanks

wouldnt expect any change froma cheap catback setup such as redback. If you want true pickups go a full system from a reputable shop matched to a tune
