i saw on another post you thought thtat the RPI GTM axle back by itself wasn't loud enough? have you done anything to change this?

The Gintani catless with race mufflers sounds brutal.
The GTM is pretty loud too but never heard it in person, only on videos.
Might be the same sound level, but the tones are different.

I've heard both of them before and honestly they both sound really badass. You really can't go wrong.. I do think that the G race is a bit louder than the RPI.

The Hybrid rear section exhaust consists of the race mufflers with the internals of the sport exhaust. This sounds amazing, it is in between both systems, perfect for anyone that wants louder but not that loud of an exhaust.
That sounds PERFECT for me any rough ETA?

I have a Gintani sport, dual walled, and ceramic coated black on order. Should be shipped this week. Once it comes in I will post pics and vids. Sport isn't as loud as race, but when you're hitting it you can definitely hear it coming. At least that is what I have read and heard on some cars. I guess I will have to see.

I didn't want something so loud that it drowns everything else out, which is the race. It's badass, but way too loud for me. With the sport, if it's not quite loud enough, I can always get a catless xpipe or something with some HFC's to make it a bit louder.
