For starters, is it possible to make a 5.4L not drone? I just got my exhaust done (Single 3" Cat Back with one muffler) and it sounds good at low RPM (0-1800rpm) then between 1800 and 3000rpm it sounds like a 4cyl with one of huge tips on it. Then after 3000rpm up to 5000rpm it sounds pretty sweet.


Dunno for sure about the 3V's, but on the BOSS's they drone for a small range around 2000rpm. Even with the factory exhaust.

Yeah you shouldnt need to start it to find out if its the cats that are making the noise. Is it possible to unbolt the factory cats or are they welded onto the exhaust manifold? If there now welded you unbolt the cats on both sides, so that the whole exhaust is seperate from the manifolds and shake it around to see if something is loose inside one of the cats. See the diagram below in the attachment that will show you what i mean. :)
