Put an ar-20 resonator on your section 1 and it will get rid of the rasp, and sound way better.

Yeah that will make it nice and throaty sounding, I just put an ar-20 on my section 1 and it took care of the rasp and the sound is exotic I have a gruppe m exhaust and there pretty aggressive to start bit when I put on the ar-20 it calmed down some but nice and throaty.

Re: M3 Megan Racing Exhaust

Yes I'm running cats for emissions purpose but euro cats are not connected to the headers like the oem headers there placed further back, I also have an evolve tune, if you haven't thought about doing a tune evolve tunes are a great place to start, I'm more than happy with the outcome.

How's the drone? Can't tell me there's none because I know there is, just curious to see how apparent it is.

Just put this on with the AR20.. wow. I'm very happy with the money spent. Anybody have any thoughts on how to manipulate the hangers to get the tips turned upward more? It's not THAT they point down, but the gap it leaves between them and the diffuser is what I don't like.

Did you happen to find a solution to this? Wondering why Megan hasn't fixed/addressed this issue.

No solution yet. Have been looking around online for commentary but haven't gotten under there to actually play with it yet...
