Sosi or Fabspeed?

I can't make a final decision on an xpipe. I'm running a megan catback and planning on getting some ACM test pipes soon. I really don't care as to how loud I get, hence if fabspeed is the choice it will be non-resonated.

Is there really any difference between both of these xpipes?

Thank you.

It will be raspy as hell, I have a Megan exhaust and have heard one with no resonators and no primary cats and at WOT it is rasp hell...

I'm not even sure if SOSI is still in business...of the two I would go with Fabspeed.

Instead of going the route you propose go with the MS x-pipe, it comes with the test pipes and the mid x-pipe all in one box, I had that setup with Megan and there was rasp up top but daily driving was very livable, nearly zero drone.
