Walker BTM - Drone?

Hi Folks,

I'm about to replace the exhaust in my 01 and was going to go with the Walker BTM muff. I'm going to stick to 3.5" front to back and don't expect performance gains. -Just replacing the exhaust.

For those of you who have a BTM; does it give you annoying highway 'drone' sound? - that I don't want.

Thx!!

The only time I notice mine is if I'm driving along side a mountain pass or along side a wall. Other than that, I don't really notice mine.

Roll your windows up and you wont even notice its there. Only time you notice it is under moderate accel, and when you drive next to something or in a tunnel. At highway speeds straight pipe or btm sound stock. I had mine straight piped but it was too loud with a goose in tow so I put on a btm, best decision I made!

i bought mine as a temp, until i can get a full 4 inch exhaust. i wanted to get my hpop and injectors updated first..... hpop is coming soon , so next is the injectors. i have no complaints on the btm so far, if i didnt want to gut the cat, it would have been a 45 minute job, tops....

X2 - had a straight pipe, loved it... but it was a bit much in the city and what not. Walker BTM is great, sounds good - still growls (I followed the wife around to listen lol) and isn't 'too much', ever. Wish I would have saved my money and not paid for the welding job twice.

No drone here either. You can hear the turbo next to walls (kind of a helicopter sound, for lack of a better description) but you'll still hear the 7.3 in front of you more than anything. My but dyno likes it too.
