Default Slightly different Exhaust Question

Trying to work out what to do on my C2S; either full system, x pipe or mufflers as you Yanks call them.

Im coming down on either cross pipe or mufflers. But what is the difference in sound quality?

Don't want anything that will keep the Queens corgis awake, but want something that I can definitely hear when its installed.

Have seen valvetronic x pipes and that is currently my favoured option. I don't have PSE on my car.

Your guidance is much appreciated

Yank here. Take a look at the Kline Iconel exhaust. Excellent workmanship and materials, deep guttural intoxicating sound. Can't vouch for whether the Corgi's will get any sleep.

Full Cargraphic. German. May be cheaper as less shipping or more as Brexit. Haven't kept up... the quieter one is TUV. I'll buy louder later this year. Approx $7k over here incl tax & ship

you dont get much out of replacing header and cat, thousands of dollars for very little extra air flow.
mufflers change sound

Headers/Cats = performance > sound

Catback = sound > performance

Full system compounds sound but performance the majority of your performance is still coming from the high flow cats.

I love my IPE. With the valve off its no louder than stock but with it on it goes into beast mode. The IPE system is a lot higher pitched than some of the others.

Will look at cargraphic as that means no extra taxes whilst the Motherland stays in the EU.

I thought Kline was Romanian and thus EU also? - worth looking at their kit too, quite a few UK distributors ... but you cant go wrong with either them or CG...

Tubi also make a 991 exhaust too...
