Not to be a prick, but why? What does sound volume have to with anything? Loudness != Power.
Is it a street car?, which I am assuming by the nature of your post. Oh yeah, did I ask why?

i have the Borla & FC race header combo and it's disgustingly loud...

it really does get old... I hate having to turn up my radio just to hear it over the exhaust when cruisin on the highway..... And there is always having to crawl through residential neighborhoods late night so no to be a neussance(sp?)

I'd like to get the FS quiet exhaust or the bosal & silencer combo... but cant afford to flip the bill before selling my borla

I just drove over 4 hours just below 100mph from Belgium to the house with NO exhaust at all. Now with the Supertrapp it is not bad but if it is any louder than the trapp then I would tell you forget it. On my car with no muffler the power is all but gone. Yes it is fun to drive around with a rally car like sound but when I have to leave to go to work at 6 am no one thinks it's cool. I have to get it fixed by monday night. Loud exhausts are cool in the begining but when longtime friends from next door come over and say cap it or loose it, well get the picture.

there is nothing worse than being woken up by some idiot driving through my neighborhood w/ a loud exhaust. in a race car go for it. in a street car it's an irritant.

there are many of us who struggle to legitimize our hobby/addiction. society however, looks to the problem people and calls us a bunch of punks. we may not agree with their opinion but we have to live with them and it's better not to go to war with your neighbors over a car.

just my $.02

i'm pretty sure the mbrp exhaust is the louder of the two you mentioned. vibrant also makes one i believe that has a more aggressive note.

hey yeah if you wanna stay awake the thumpidy thump of a good pair of subs... and the crisp clear sound a good front stage


that way, if you want louder you turn the volume up... but if you want quieter, you turn the volume down... and it solves the problem of keeping you awake
