Default Beluga Racing Resonated Test Pipes, Raspy!! Need an Alternative

Hi Guys, im new to my Z. Here are some pics of my Test Pipe install, I bought the Beluga racing resonated Test Pipes off of ebay. Overall the quality / fit and finish is amazing but, i dont like the exhaust note on the car. Would spending the money on some motordyne Art pipes eliminate the CEL / Sound deeper *NO RASP ?

Thanks in Advance.

I really like the way the car drives, so even the ART pipes will throw CEL's? and sound raspy?

I had high hopes for these.

My FI resonated TP don't throw any CEL's so I am not sure why those are. I can see that there are O2 extenders on there too. But all TP will have rasp. The ART pipes will help quite a bit but there will still be a little there

A local has a motordyne shockwave paired up with the ART pipes and it doesn't sound raspy at all. Loud and aggressive, yes. Raspy, no.

I think it's hit or miss with certain HFC/TP and exhaust combos.

F.I. site states this about their resonated HFCs:
Absolutely NO RASP from RPM idle to RPM redline in conjunction with our TDX cat back exhaust system.

Exactly why I'm considering picking a pair up in the future.

I have FI non-res test pipes, matched up to my AAM s-line y/mid-pipe and their S-line axleback. I dont really have any rasp at all. Unless I am not at WOT, around 4-5k, there is a very slight rasp, but that rarely happens because I don't drive around at partial throttle at 5k.

You will definitely have less rasp with ART pipe and a better sound, I'm running the Beluga Racing resonated test pipes and catback exhaust and I'm loving it. Here a 2 - 4https://vimeo.com/132774451

ART pipes have way less rasp, and does not throw a CEL. I've tested a few and ART pipes are by far the best imo

Not to thread jack, but has anyone ever tried pairing the Berk BT1407 test pipes (no cats - non-resonated) with the Nismo exhaust? I just picked up a new/leftover 13 Nismo and would like a little more sound.

Resonated- https://conceptzperformance.com/Cart...n.php?II=14440

I found the ART as well -
