Guess you can't have your cake and eat it too.
From what I can tell, yes it will be loud and raspy. The OEM exhaust alone is already pretty loud (for my standards anyway). What is a big no no for is the rasp. I'm more looking for that deep tone.

So IMHO, Test pipes + OEM exhaust mod = no
Test pipes + other exhaust (I think I'm going to go with Megan exhaust) = yes.

But I'm happy with the way my exhaust sounds, so I'm in no rush to chop everything off and start over.
