With just the Xede (no exhaust), I suspect we could pick up 40whp and 40lbft of torque on 91oct. Still good but being able to hear the exhaust and pick up another chunk of power is a hard thing to resist.
How loud will the exaust be in the cockpit? I would not mind if it was just a bit louder, however if it was like my buddies car (yelling at one another over the exaust sound) I'd just go with the Xede.
