Seems like everyone who has my setup doesnt have as raspy of a tone as I do....is this in my tune? or is it in the way the guy welded the pipes (some overlap) I am running Kooks no cats + magnaflow exhaust. Exhaust leak? It honestly sounds open header sometimes. Blown header gasket??
Could have something to do with having no cats....does it sound raspy at the tailpipes or from the front/middle of the car?

from like the front middle.....
Collectors....or possibly the joint between your catless pipes and your x-pipe...it was a PAIN to get the cats to mate up to the x-pipe without leaking...just ended up cutting and welding them in! I have a CONSTANT ticking noise at all RPM's that is coming from inside the collectors...I have settled on the fact that it is valve train noise. I dont know if it excessive or not, but if the motor blows up I still have a lot of warranty left!

I think it has been mentioned that the "ringing" is the hot exhaust exit from the valve.
That is what someone told me anyways, so live with it.:thumbsup:
If you wanted it quiet, you should leave it stock.......
