I had a Dinan mid + AA rear totally catless which was too loud for my daily use. Went with ACM test pipes and M perf rear which is nice and quiet.

I know this doesn't answer your question but don't go with any of the items I had if you want reallllly loud.

I'd stay away from Arkym. I had horrible luck with mine and customer service wont even answer emails. Completely unsatisfactory product and customer service.

It's really subjective, some people think an akra slip on is loud. But oem mid section with straight pipes or catless mids and oem rear is nothing compared to full straight pipes. Which is what I'm getting at and using as the control. Anything under 130db is not considered "LOUD" IMO! I've heard louder..

Doesn't Top Speed also make midpipes? Could look into that.
But tbh I wouldn't go catless with a Top Speed rear. That's loud.

Revinora is probably the loudest rear section, then either Gintani Race or Meisterschaft Super GT

I had AA signature exhaust. I surprised this hasn't been mentioned, guess the others are insanely loud. You could hear me from half a mile away at night. The entire neighborhood could hear me coming home every night from work and leaving in the morning.

I'll never understand why people pursue loudness for the sake of loudness.

Depends if you want loud deep traditional V8 sound or a raspy sound. Drone is going to be a factor in all of these so a valve option is worth thinking about for those times (late at night or sitting next to a cop) when you want a bit less loud
