dude, when I fitted my 2 1/2" redback to my car, it seriously sounded 95% stock. It annoyed me so much so I took it back to the exhaust shop and they changed the rear muffler to a resonator, now it sounds great.

Sounds good might look into this for mine how did your exhaust finish on yours before the change. Mine goes down to the road. Does your do this?
