Hi all. I'm looking to replace the v&h 2-1 I love the deep sound the the mid range sound at cruising speed is driving me crazy and bothers my ears. . so here we go again ..I did think of modifying the muffler . There's no straight through baffle so it leaves a big empty space causing the mid range sound.. I tried the quiet baffle and it sounded awefull. Maybe if get some muffler packing stuff just to fill the empty space.. What do you think? or should I just get the freedom performance 2-1 , but I don't know what they sound like.

The sound you hear is "resonance" and absolutely drove me friggin batty when I first had the v&h on.
get the f/p system, a properly designed baffle with one helluva sound, and the front cylinder exhaust tube is routed higher in the same area where the v&h pipe sits lower and I am constantly touching the pipe down in right handers.

Sorry to hear it Jase. Its weird, I never hear all these things people complain about. I read a million threads on the Dodge Charger forums about drone with Flowmaster exhaust. I have super 44's on my Hemi Charger and sound is music to my ears. I turn the radio on and dont even notice droning any more from resonance.
Try the sto k headers and get the V&H slipons. They are much quieter than what I expected. I dont even hear them on the highway at cruising speed. I only hear them when running through the gears and if I jump on the throttle.
