Front Pipe Options

I currently have a corsa catback on my car and while it is nice its not as loud as I was expecting/hoping for. Im still under warranty so a header is not an option.

I do want to get a catless resonated front pipe to increase volume slightly but I definitely dont want any drone if possible. That's the one thing I love about the corsa so I would like to keep it that way if possible while increasing the volume. I also dont want it to sound too tinny or raspy either. Which front pipe would you recommend?

What?
I don't think adding a header is going to void your warranty.

Was looking into this one. Even with a dual res it will still be louder than a stock FP?

A header will void my warranty as I would be getting a tune with the header. Even if I flash it back they will still know it's been touched apparently.

I went with the HKS dual res, but they both will work.

And yes it'll be louder than stock. I don't know if the catback combo'd will cause a drone, but the fp alone doesn't have any drone.

Yes because you're removing a catalytic converter from the flow.

Drop your rear seats!
Not sure if you do already but that alone makes a noticeable difference in the sound that enters the cabin.

The hearing also improves as items from the trunk hitting the back of the head under braking help to dislodge ear wax..

Why would she have loose items flying around her car, is she testing 100-0 braking with boxes of christmas ornaments in the back?

I still vote headers and a tune and leave the rest stock. Sure they could check to see if you previously had a tune, but unless they are looking for a reason to void your warranty, it's worth it. Plus changing the headers yields both power and sound.
