    Crackles and pops

    I would like to hear from people who are running the crackles tune. I am running it on the stock dp and I want to know how long I can expect the cat to live if it does anything at all. I've heard that it will damage it and that it would barley have an effect on the dp. Since i'm living in Commiefornia I kinda don't want to risk running a full catless dp. Are the high flow dp's okay with this tune? Sorry if this has been asked a lot I just want to get a clearer idea of the effects it has.

    I have had it on a cobb catted dp for a few weeks now. I like it although its not super noticeable during normal driving. Where I really hear the crackles and pops is after a wot run to redline. This is with the oem catback also.

    Is the medium crackle and pops going to annoy me? I want a slight sound that is noticeable, nothing annoying.

    Well that's kind of what I'm trying to avoid. If it sounds like the RS does...that's sexy. If it sounds like popcorn popping and is annoying and hard to tune out and ignore...then no thanks.

    I got the loud crackles put on my 2nd tune from Stratified. I didn't put it on the first tune because I though it would get annoying but it doesn't. I daily drive on the crackle tune and love it. Its not stupid loud with the stock downpipe and MBPR 3" exhaust.

    I'd have a Depo Catless and stock catback with it. Is it like...every single time you let off the gas? Or only high RPMs

    I have the same exhaust setup as popwarhomie (Stock DP/MBRP Catback). Its there every time you let off the gas but intensity is higher in the upper rev range. It does not constantly do it when you are off the gas, it does it for maybe 3-5 seconds depending on rpm. I do not find it annoying at all. It adds to the driving experience and makes the car more fun. You can sort of control the noise with your right foot to a certain extent. I've running the tune for awhile now with no issues to the cat that I know of.

    I will say i've listened to the videos posted where people have catless DP's and aftermarket exhausts and it sounds way too loud for my tastes. Noise is subjective based on your tastes so you'd just have to give it a shot yourself. Its an easy fix if you don't like it as I believe they give a tune with it and without it.

    I think they only give you a tune with and without if I order a separate slot. Currently I only have 1. I wish I could just try it temporarily or something lol free trial.

    I have a resonator delete and the Stratified crackle-pop tune, no other engine mods. I love it; it makes a pop between shifts and kind of poppity sound when decel. Someone else said that you have to get up into 3000+ rpm before it will do anything, but that is not the case. I have noticed my gas mileage going down, probably because I am accelerating and letting up so I can hear it. It's really alot of fun.
