Ever since I installed the FI LDPs the droning and overall volume increased tremendously, it sounded crazy but it was too loud and raspy. Too muh of a screamer for my taste. It already had a bit of droning just with the FI CBE, but with the LDP added it got bad. I was quite disappointed with the FI exhaust which is so highly praised here in the forum.

Spoke with Kevin @Fastintentions and he said I could try to get a local shop to install resonators (voiding the warranty though) or order a new mid pipe but I decided to go ahead with the local shop.

Ordered these from Z1:


Picked the 12', was afraid the 18s were going to be too quiet.

Got a local shop I trust to install them and ****, it sounds freaking amazing now. It got a deeper tone, its less loud but still very noticeable, especially from outside. The guys in the shop did a great job.

Also had them do a transmission fluid change and indeed the car shifts smoother now (66k kms). New spark plugs too in preparation for a Specialty Z tuning later this spring. Also new belt (indicator was getting close to edge) and new brake fluid (5.1).

Anyways, I digress. Moral of the story, get resonators unless I like a screamer :D

I know this is an older post but when you purchased the FI CBE did you go with the resonated x pipe and resonated mufflers initially? Do you have a pic of the install of these other resonators?

OP hasn't been seen since September of last year. But going off his signature, and the fact that FI said he could either order a new mid pipe with resonators or have a shop install resonators I'd guess he had the non-resonated mid pipe to begin with.

I didn't catch that he said he'd have to order a new one with the resonators. I wonder what mufflers he went with on that install? I'm guessing he did the whole non-resonated x and sport mufflers on it.

His signature says "FI CBE 10" mufflers"

Well look at me not reading his signature and responding to these things without my glasses on, lol.

I have the FI LDP's and resonated Catback touring. Still has some drone around 2-3k.
You mind sharing a video of it (you can just DM me it) of driving normal and decent acceleration?
