Stage 1 a few years back, I removed the silencer with the stock exhaust, because it was acting like a vacuum sweeping the road into the filter.
Stage 2 this spring I installeda Stage 2 and love it except, I'm thinking I want some silencer effect back to minimize the 3400-3800 rpm drone somewhat. Any ideas?? Reinstall 1/2 of the silencer or a short downturned smooth tube with trumpet on the end?

Replacing the snorkel on the airbox will not change the drone of your muffler.

My suggestion: ear plugs.
+1 except my suggestion is change mufflers.

But, but, I like the Stage II's howling the most when it runs in high RPM. I heard so many different mufflers in HK, but none have the machincal sound as LTS Stage II has in the high RPM.

So I installed a 10" sub to over come it.:D

Going from NA to vf2 resulted in a drone-free ride. The IC must have quelled the racket. Expensive solution, but you won't regret it.

Then I guess we go back to RoadDad's suggestion.:shrug:

Forced induction (turbo's in my experience) does seem to quiet drone...(great excuse for a turbo.)

Drive it over 4K all the time :shrug:



I wear earplugs with my stage II if I am taking a long highway ride.

If anyone that are capable to open up a LTS Stage II and replace the insulation material to a non compacted material (when hot) then it will be perfect.

Or simply copy the LTS II with better insulation material.:D
