Is it the loudest exhaust on the market, and what are your experiences with it? Thanks for any input.

I have one on my ZX3 and it sound great. Very loud at WOT. It is great if you plan on heavily modding your motor because it uses 2.5 inch pipe. Overall the fit and quality is flawless.

I have it and it sounds good outside, not terribly loud, but in cabin it is louder and annoying. I have had several females tell me they do not like it.

Not very load at all, but maybe that's because I'm used to listening to the Borla on my brothers Cobra......

After adding a resonator the the front section of my Borla it really mellowed out. No more problems with the girls and better low end power.

im thinking about getting one. is it easy to install???? could the more savy car guys install it??
First of all how did you dig a thread up from 2002? Secondly... to answer your questions they are not hard to intall, just patience. Removal is more of a bitch than instalation... because you will have to cut the stock exhaust between the resonator and muffler (lunchbox) that sits behind your rear bumper. Also, if you live in a winter prone area the two bolts off your flex may be a rusted mess, and would need to be replaced. If you don't have a welder, you could always take it to a muffler shop and have them weld it up, or you could just use clamps, making sure you get as good of a seal as you can.

I have the borla and the focus sport ORP and I don't personally think it's too loud. Not ricy just deep and raw!
