The drone and rasp was terrible with my TRD catback. I think the drone and rasp is more of a product of your catback. A CSG Touring 86 fixed it and now sounds awesome.

I had the same problem. I went to a CSG Touring 86 Laguna catback and now I actually enjoy driving the car. No drone and just a nice mellow throaty tone.

Heat in relation to an engine goes past just oil temps. More heat than necessary in the engine bay is never a good thing. A cooler running motor (to a point) is just a lot happier. I don't think I've...

The Perrin's are good. I've had 2 on my car. The first one had to be replaced due to metal shaving in the motor after the dealer destroyed the motor during recall surgery.
