Not at all! Its quiet sounds amazing in sport in low or high RPM. very low drone, if you have music on you won't even notice.

I think you should bring it to a tuning shop, get their advice on it.

I get a really big hiccup or lag like the computer is thinking whether to use OEM software or tune.

For just JB4 n55 stage 1 tune - did you plug in blue? I have the mechanical solenoid.

Just interested to see how the new section looks on a stock exhaust. Whether it can be done cleanly whilst on the car, does the whole exhaust needs to come off, how the welds look and etc?

Nope the whole exhaust dosent have to come off all they do is cut the resonator & add a pipe.

Same outcome for me. Sounds nothing like OP's car, almost like stock but maybe 10% deeper. But probably shed like 10lbs from removing the resonator lol. Time to look for an actual cat back I guess. Car is way too quiet for me.

Get a DP or a muffler delete. My setup is practically a straight pipe front to back and it sounds just right, not too loud at all.

Hey man, I have no idea what your issue can be. Do you have the latest software uploaded for the mechanical solenoid ? That's the only thing I can think of. Besides that, double check your connections. Best bet would be to contact burger tuning, they're usually quite quick with their service.

Both of those options you mentioned would be a hell of a lot cheaper then a $2,500+ exhaust system.

Precisely. Plus DP improve performance ! And even with the exhaust system you'd still want to get a DP... 400$ down pipe, 140$ resonator delete and 50$ muffler mod, couldn't be happier !
