It's loud, but a very, very good loud. I would say it's very livable and go for it.

Its an exhaust so they normally dont have any issues and Im sure if u have a problem they will address it ASAP. Gintani besides having great products has great customer service. Im sure anyone that has dealt with them can back me on this one .

I don't think Gintani offers the exhaust in smaller tips. Although they did in the past when they had the option to go for 80 mm tips.

It's best to check with Gintani directly......Maybe they'll work something out for you.

i remember them saying somewhere they could do custom smaller tips, just wondering if anyone took them up on that offer.

Why would you want smaller tips? Those tips are damn sexy.

A couple of weeks ago I drove up to Gintani to meet with Alex so I could hear the exhaust and see the operation. Alex is a really straight guy that knows his business. I discussed the 80mm tips and he said it was no longer an option. I also heard the exhaust and it did sound incredible. My favorite sound so far but too loud for my tastes. Alex did tell me they were working on a "sport version" that would keep the signature Gintani sound but with less volume. I would highly recommend Gintani, nice product and good guys.

Did you listen to the full catless system or just the Rear section? The rear section alone isn't terribly loud imo. And I'm not sure theres alot of catless systems that can be alot quiter then the Gintani just a different sound thats about it.

I would get the full race gintani setup with the added option of HFCs. That would definitely make it DDable
