Looking for Videos of Euro/CSL Headers on Stock Exhaust

Iím sure there are folks here with this setup but can anyone post sound or video clips of OEM Euro (or CSL) headers + OEM Euro cats (or modified NA secondaries) + stock everything else?

Iím generally not a fan of drone nor rasp but have even lower tolerance now that Iím in a roadster. Iíd imagine the above setup canít be very loud since thatís the default setup for European models.

I had Euro headers with DKF section 1 (s pipe) + RDSport exhaust. I know that's not what you're asking for, but the RD cans weren't too loud, which is probably close to stock cans. Not sure if a clip of that will help you.

From what I've read, roadster will have less drone and buzz since the exhaust sound doesn't resonate within the cabin. Seems logical but can't say for sure since I don't have both to compare.

The Euro header has no cats; however, the S-pipe cats are more restrictive vs the NA ones. For the most unrestricted OE setup, Euro header with NA s-pipe is probably the best. I know this doesn't answer your question for sound but just my 2 cents when you're looking.

This sound clip for RD sport exhaust have similar setup. I was interested but it is almost like stock exhaust. I decided not to purchase and put the stock cans back on.

If you have please post em up. So I take it the drone was a non-issue? Any unwanted rasp?

Thanks, reason I’m looking for euro cats is so I don’t have to mod my NA ones.

That YouTube video RobMcoupe posted is my car with everything stock except the cans, which were the RD sport. So thatís not close to the set up youíre asking about. The Euro catless headers + DKF S pipe with 100 cell cats + RD Sport (close to stock cans) didnít have much drone and/or unwanted rasp. Then again I now have RPI cans and the drone doesnít bother me one bit. I think youíll be fine with the modded S pipe and catless headers + stock cans. Let me look for a video and Iíll post it

I thought that video was with euro headers. Thanks for the correction.

I'll try to get sound clip when I refresh my exhaust bangers. My setup is Evolve airbox, Euro headers and cats. I am switching back to OEM X-pipe so it should be pretty close.

No problem Rob. If I may ask, why are you going back to OEM X pipe? Reason I want RE x pipe is for the bit more sound I can get.

I purchased used KKS exhaust. It is bit louder than expected with RE X-pipe. I want to see if OEM X-pipe provide good balance between Evolve airbox bark and exhaust.
