Yeah, it's definitely louder than the stock exhaust. There is no doubt about that. The stock exhaust seems very quiet to me now. It is also significantly lighter than the stock exhaust.
You will likely need a few nuts and washers to fit the stock pieces. Mine (and it seems most others) didn't come with the required hardware. $2 at Home Depot should do the trick though. It's just a pain because you won't realize it until the stock exhaust is off the car and then you'll be stuck with a car without exhaust to drive to the hardware store. So, make sure you have another vehicle handy or get the required hardware beofrehand. I wish I had the required sizes for you but I don't.
