Or they just actually like how it sounds.

Pretty sure. But I do believe the set I have is an older system.

Just about any V8 is gonna drone somewhere especially when its being lugged. The LT seem to have a slightly different exhaust pulse from the L98 for some reason (bank fire vs?)& drone easier.
My 89 had a slight drone even with stock muffllers..hey its a sports car with a short system with what is basically a speaker (rear hatch area) so be it.
Want bad drone? Put any muffler on an LSx truck suv they drone everywhere....so much for that big benefit in firing order they sound like a boat.
Theres my pessimism for the day! lol

I've been debating between a Corsa and a B&B. I know the B&B will drone. But man, B&B, no cats and LT headers will sound killer.

That is weird then, mine has zero drone and I've been through several different exhausts. Magnadrone was definitely the worst.

Worse than Borla? It seems like a loud and droning noise. If I wasn't so worried about the flow loss and that it isn't as rust resistant as the SS 304 systems, I'd be all over an LT1 exhaust system.

I'm doing LTs into the stock system(mufflers) with an X-pipe. Supposedly sounds good with little to no drone
