Sound level is not obnoxious, but it is loud, very impressive. Garners attention and as you can tell, very aggressive tone. NO noticeable drone. What so ever. You will hear the exhaust inside the car of course, but do not confuse that with drone. You can carry on a conversation and jam to your music. People who are not even gear heads compliment the sound.

The only thing I wish we could have captured better on the video is the decel pop. It's fantastic! I just didnt pass the camera at the right RPM range I think.

Awesome price, fast shipping, and 1st class customer service from Apex Motorsports!
I love decal pop, this catback is in my garage awaiting install and headers next summer, woohoo! Is there any real difference here between using Kooks vs. ARH vs. SW headers here (all 1 ⅞" by the way)

Here is a link to a thread I wrote about selecting headers. Yes, there are some differences between those brands but you can't make a wrong decision if those are the brands you are deciding between. They are the top of the line.

Chase, thanks, I have seen this before and will look at it again. Can you shed any light on the differences between the three brands of LT headers I mentioned? Thanks!

All three use the same high quality material (304L stainless steel), have a very high degree of construction quality, and are made in the USA. If you look at them all side-by-side you will notice that they each route their primaries slightly differently and have some proprietary features. Where the rubber meets the road they all produce almost identical performance gains. There is some little bit of a variation in price.

Here is a quick crappy iPhone picture for you. I will do a more in depth post on the specific differences soon. The top one is Kooks, the middle is Stainless Works, and the bottom is ARH.

Best part of this system is that everything bolts on and matches up with out any hassles. SW really did their homework.

Great stuff and the comparison pic is helpful. I'll keep an eye out for your post. Does Apex supply all three?

So ARH drop a nice little bit more than the other two options?

Not sure I follow. Do you mean hanging below the car?
