Adding a test pipe will increase the volume by a hell of a lot. Doesn't matter what muffler you are running.

That setup is going to be pretty damn loud (too much for me). My 2 cents.

I ran something similar (GT2+ AA HFC X-pipe) and it was 10x louder than the GT2 by itself. I took it off 3 days after installing it so I'm back on stock cats.

This idea is outrageous. Why not just go IPE and/or LibertyWalk that thing?

GT2 is one of the loudest exhausts by itself. With test pipes you will exploding cars and houses as you drive by.

THIS. I had the GT2 and the test pipes installed, it's way too loud. I have since switched to MPE and removed the test pipes.

I had this setup I does sound amazing but it is also very VERY loud! It is tolerable if you don't DD the car but. I only changed mine because I got tired of swapping it out for the track. Here is a clip.
