How bad is the drone? I'm about to delete my 2013 and install my 5" MBRP today.

I had a straight pipe on for about a week. I hated it. Too loud for me. I loved the whistle like you, but decided to add a muffler. I am happy with the results. Still hear the whistle, but the overall noise it a lot quieter. A lil bit of drone still left, but way happier than when it was straight piped.

A muffler shouldnt take away the whistle, make sure you get one that is 5" all the way through. Most diesel mufflers just have the tabs that point towards the exit of the exhaust that way it doesnt catch exhaust gasses but rather just distorts the sound waves

if the muffler is a packed type design, it will kill the turbo whistle
