It didn't with mine unfortunately. I was getting drone above 3K rpm which is where I tend to hover mostly on my drives.

OP, just keep the stock catback and go with an aftermarket catted DP. It is still going to be louder than stock with this setup but there is no exhaust out there that I know of that is as quiet as the stock exhaust.

I'm personally running the Invidia Q300 (still have the stock downpipe) because in my research it was the most quiet aftermarket exhaust I could find. I was just tired of looking at how ugly the stock mufflers/exhaust was and the Q300 hasn't disappointed in any way. It looks great, is relatively quiet, and a great value IMO (I was about to get mine for $723 shipped on Amazon). I'm sure when I go with an Invidia catted downpipe it will be even louder but right now it isn't obnoxious, doesn't drone, and I can easily carry on a conversation in my car (the car itself is still louder than the actual exhaust).

And then when you got on it, it was quiet. Backwards of a good exhaust. It was well built though.

You should have seen the reaction of the tech when I upgraded to the Corsa.
So you put a downpipe on and paired it with the COBB exhaust and didn't like it. OP wants a quiet stock like exhaust and you confirmed it is quiet up top, so that in turn gives the OP what he's looking for up top. Mix that in with the stock DP the OP is still on wouldn't that give him exactly what he's looking for??

it is not quiet when trying to be quiet. lol. It's absolutely horrible driving around, especially on the highway. All you heard was a low frequency bass note.

It was flat out embarrassing to have anyone in the car. I had never been bothered by such an annoying exhaust.

with ELH, totally different. The Cobb sounds decent when you go ELH, although Miltek is nicer and quieter.

Sorry I wan't clear.

What do you think of the Corsa? I am looking at it and my complaint about the STI/P performance exhaust is the same as yours about the Cobb.

Thanks all for your opinions. I'm thinking a catted dp with the stock cat back is the way to go after all.

It's awesome, but don't be fooled, with a DP, there is noise. It is not drone noise per say, but exhaust noise at all times, and noticeable when on the highway.

At least it is not boomy or bassy.
