Downpipe

Hello guys. Well first of all how much of a difference in sound does the downpipe add? I'm wanting more of a deep tone when laying the hammer down instead of the sound of a cougar screaming lol. My tunes do help with that at idle and gives it that deep LB7 sound but when punching it I wish it had a deeper tone. I've heard the downpipe has helped but do any of you out there with it have any exhaust clips? Preferably LBZ's, any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks.

pretty much all the scream was removed when i did mine.. Pissed me off at first but then i realized that i reduced my egts about 150deg at 80mph.

I made a lil pis this morning showing the different downpipes



and a video a few months back to illustrate the sound
