Default Anyone have ARK hfc or test pipes with ark exhaust?

I currently have ARK grip with stock cats on my car and I'm thinking on getting ark hfc or test pipes, I'm wondering if anyone has this combo and can chime in on how much louder it is and if it drones inside the cabin.

Anyone with ark grip knows that it's very quiet and zero drone and I'd like to keep it without drone, a little louder if possible under acceleration.

I do have the ark hfc's with my grip style exhaust. Dude it is AMAZING!!! Their is a significant increase in drone but in my opinion it isn't that annoying or loud to the point that i don't like it. When im feathering the gas and letting it slowly climb in rev's it just sounds sexy!!!! I was doing 60 next to the center divider on the freeway and kicked into 3rd and let it rip....sounds like a damn race car...LOVE IT! I have a vid posted for after hfc install.

If you have the ARK HFC's I would say go with the DTS exhaust system. The tone is more refined and helps with the hiss and rasp as well

I have an ARK exhaust with Fast Intentions HFC, it sounds amazing. I love it.

I would think all HFC's/test pipes will eventually cause the light to come on.

I'm UpRev tuned so the light is gone.

I'll be getting the ARK HFC sometime soon.. I love the ARK grip that I have so I hope it sounds just as good with the HFC.
