(it does overpower road noise when on the throttle at 2600-2900rpm 60-70mph)
    So someone that drives 20-150 miles a day on the highway. The muffler delete may not be the best option? lol

    Well IMO it's a bit more complicated than that. haha. The muffler delete isn't horrible on the highway, it's just louder than stock.. I recently drove a 300mi freeway trip and if you have 0 music it is loud and kind of annoying... A constant fairly fast paced rumble.. (nowhere near as bad as that weird vibrating drone at 1500rpm on the stock exhaust) Any sort of music will drown it out but you have to have more music than stock... for me on the stock stereo system, I listen to the radio on 12(street) 14(freeway)... after the muffler delete, it is 12(street) 18(freeway).. I dont like my music super loud, but enough to really listen to it.. and I listen to all types of music. The other thing is what I have gathered from asking others on this forum and from other forums, and I will be getting an aftermarket Midpipe soon, and it will make the system a tad bit louder still.. so for me, I wouldn't recommend it, but in reality.. To each their own.. haha

    Got rid of my HIDs and went back to halogens. Friends dad backed his car into the side of mine. :/
    Maybe someday I will have enough for a Nameless Performance 4" muffler....

    Chance, from one DGM owner to another, your ride looks fantastic! I'm working on adding some red touches to my car as well. Keep up the hard work and make sure you keep posting photos as well of your progress.

    Oh I know I don't. But they r both on sale and my sedan has that super annoying resonating drone sound when driving at 1500 rpm. It drives me crazy. Plus I want that sexy boxer engine sound.
