    Its too mellow in my opinion.. I like that theres no rasp but its very quiet at idle.

    it gets louder at about 2700 < rpm. The more the pedal is stomped the louder it gets.

    Also it sounds way more wicked when you have a cam

    ^^^^^^THIS!!!!

    Mellow enough that it doesn't bother the neighbors yet just the right tone when I depress the loud pedal. When I install the MS3 cam I bought then the duals will really come into play.

    I was a little dissapointed after I had my installed, but it worked out for the best. I went from Flowmaster which was drowning everything out at 1800rpm. Now at least I can drive on the highway without being super annoyed. In the long run I would rather have it a little quieter at idle and let everyone hear it when I open it up.

    I picked up a Magnaflow as well. It sounds better then stock, but not annoying loud. Now I got my Long tubes in and it's prefect!!! Sounds like a caged beast at idle, and f'n great when you get on it!!!

    It will get a little louder after a couple hundred miles, and sound even better!

    Price. The quad tip system is $250 more expensive.

    Sucks you are disappointed.

    I prefer a clean sound over loud.....hence my liking Magnaflow.

    The ms3 cam does sound good I have it with 113lsa with lt's , some bullet cats from a vette exhaust since cops kept looking a little too much and the slp powerflo exhaust and could be happier with sound or performance.

    I'm not disappointed its just different. The hooker catback I had on before was louder but it had rasp. I also do have a cam. You can't even really tell it has a cam lol. It's not too bad ill give it a few hundred miles and see what it sounds like
