Once you get the tune, ESS, Evolve, or whatever, the loudness does go down during "normal" driving experience. My car kinda of sounds stock plus a few db higher. You hear it around 2-5k rpm in the cabin but that is still not as bad as if you didn't get a tune. Definitely won't wake up the neighborhood and I live in a neighborhood where pampers aren't just for babies.

I haven't heard Gintani in person but from video clips, it is way different and louder than a akra..i'd go akra with a tune.
