Best Cat Back Kit with headers (for Drone)

I'm on this forum every day since I got my 06 GC SRT. There is a lot of people putting their two cents in on a lot of cat back kits. My question is what cat back has the least drone when running headers. I have Borla S and it was great until I got headers. There may be threads for this already so I apologize if this is another one asking same thing.

Right now Iím going to put on cats to see if that kills a bit of the drone. Comments are much appreciated

B Woody CAI, PRW custom grind cam, PRW heads, Indy ported intake, BBK 90mm, BB valve body, SW headers w/cat delete, Borla S, Zex kit, Stage three snow meth kit, MSD Coils, Tru fiber hood, and Livernois Motorsports custum tunes

MOPAR/ Corsa cat back is what most of the Chicago guys with headers use. I have no drone issues.

Corsa is one of the best sounding/least drone options for the WK1

2012 300SRT
2009 Jeep SRT

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Kooks LT's, Borla S and cutouts . I would go with Kooks and Corsa if I were you. It can sound loud as hell when you get on it, and the drone isn't bad during daily driving.

I ran Corsa + Sw headers and had no drone. It sounded amazing at WOT. I really miss that sound...
