AFE Catback Exhaust

Had AFe installed 3 days ago, however when cruising drowning sound gets louder. I am wondering if anyone has had similar experiance with AFE and is there any way to make it go away. I was thinking maybe put a couple of resonators. Paid $2000 for the system.

Next question: Is it better welded or clamped?

Thanks,

I was told that if I were to combine the AFE exhaust with AFE Scorcher and air filter the gains are maximized. Any thoughts????? Anybody with AFE out there???

Marketing tricks. You probably wanna drop the hopes of that scorcher being the next amazing thing.
As I said in the other threads, the scorcher is half a tune that the Jb tune is.

Thanks, I agree with you about the marketing tricks. The only thing keeping me from pulling the triger on JB tune is that problem with cold start and giving faulty messages, which can triger an unexpected trip to the dealer....

I never had any issues with a cold start with my Jb stage 1. Where did you hear this?

By the way, why do you have stage 1 not 2? Reliability?

You need resonators to turn the drone down. Vibrant seems to be a very decent brand
