You would need to break it in to get a louder exhaust note. When I install Borla exhausts on start up after installation it is pretty quiet just a subtle change but a few days later it got louder.

Don't do clamps, weld on 100% seal. When I got my muffler delete done, it was loud enough to notice but you also need the car to warm up perfectly to hear good notes. Make sure you check the pipes to see that you didn't get ripped off as well

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I hear mine no problem. Added the PE first, but have intake and tune as well. Decided to get the PE so I wouldn't have any warranty issues. All the other bits can come off if needed.

Pretty loud when the car first starts, but not obscene or tinny sounding when driving. If I shift at 3,000 rpm's it's not noisy, but if I reve up to 6,000 it has a nice throaty sound to it. I don't often go above 6,000 cause it seems like the power really drops off at high rpm's.
