straight pipe vs FTE resonator

i'm searched a bunch all over but still can't find a video of a true straight pipe compared to a FTE installed...anyone find one? or have one? i want to lose some drone inside but i still want that raw sound of a 5" straight pipe....i no this is beating a half dead horse but figured i would throw it out there

I've saw a video, but it didn't help much. I ran a straight pipe for about a month before it was about to drive me nuts because of the drone and how loud it was. I bought the 30fte and it now has a nice toned sound. It's definitely not quitwe but nowhere near as loud a straight piped. I couldn't be happier. I had an aero resonator on my last truck and they both sound just as good, however, the fte seems to be holding up much better.

ok thanks man, i'm also interested if even a Flomaster outlaw muffler would kill some drone...even though it isn't exactly a "resonator" i'll keep looking into it

get the 17 in FTE, place it as close to the down pipe as possible. It will kill the drone. You will still be able to hear your truck.

I just deleted my truck this weekend and bought a 17" FTE to go in my flo pro 5" straight pipe. I have a mega cab, and I just put the fte and the extension pipe for the CCLB and it fit perfectly. I didn't put the fte up by the downpipe because the hangers won't line up if you do. It sounds just like my buddy's 2012 with a true straight pipe and is barely louder than stock in the cab. Barely.

I'm getting ready to do the same thing and have been searching for a comparison video as well. Sounds like something is going to be needed to handle the drone.

i have a 4" flo pro w a muffler.

I took the muffler off and went straight for a bit, drone bothered my kids so i bought a FTE 30" Didnt like it, was quieter than the muffler.

Put muffler back on.
