I'm running a full exhaust headers to muffler.

Active headers
CPI RTX section one dual resonated
CPI Xtreme section two non resonated
Active gen 6 muffler

Yea I imagine on your stock car it was a big difference.

What I mean is it's not that loud if you accelerate as quickly as possible, but if you give it more throttle at lower speeds and more load, it'll get louder.

I was very happy with the Eventuri sound, but yes of course the full airbox is another ball game.
I agree, although I still feel I don't have a loud exhaust system it's loud enough to take a little away from the intake. I also agree that I need to drive the car more and learn the sweet spot. This is not like a Honda when you slap a intake on and hit a certain rpm and hallelujah [emoji38]hit:
