Hopefully I won't have to don a flame suit for this thread, lol, but I'd really like to enjoy the music from the motor on my '14 hatch. The thing that I'm hung up on is whether going with an axle-back (while retaining the stock midpipe/resonator) or going with a cat-back system has any significant difference in overall sound quality, drone, and ability to tune the car in the future. I don't have any intention in modding my car to the point where I need to have the ecu reflashed... at least for now. I'd prefer something that has little to no drone, and doesn't sound like some fart-can piece o ****. Losing ground clearance with an aftermarket exhaust would be a downer too.
Any experiences and opinions of using either setup would be greatly appreciated. Also, if there's any vendors that give ClubWRX members any kind of discount for buying the products they stock, don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks!
