I think it is. Now IMHO I would drive around with the exhaust as is for another few weeks at least to really get a feel for it. Also make sure all your clamps are tight and nothing is vibrating. I wouldn't just switch it out so fast because perhaps it is something you don't really need to do. Now I still get a little drone if I step on it in 6th to go 80+, or uphill and giving it gas, but cruising speeds are pretty tame, at least for my ears. My exhaust is less boomy than it was as well.Oh ya, I installed mine myself. I figured the aeroturbine AT3030 wouldn't be the correct length, but if it is i can definitely replace that myself. Don't worry about sound clips, you're right, mics can't pick up drone...
Do you think it was worth the $100 as far as how it changed the sound/reduced drone?

Full disclosure I also have the Stratified loud pops & crackles tune so I enjoy noise, but the Aeroturbine seemed to tame the drone and increase a little low in gurgle which I love (this I noted before I had my stratified tune). Remember it is all subjective. Some say the MBRP is loud, other say it is too quiet. Some hear drone, others do not. I came from an unresonated Honda that droned like crazy. If you came from a tame car it will sound super loud. Imagine riding in a straight piped mustang 5.0...that makes your brain rattle haha.
