axle and cat backs can only sound so loud.. you will need headers to really get the sound you want

Have you heard the exhaust from outside the car? The axleback don't really make the car louder, but changes the sound a bit. A 3" catback will increase the volume a bit, but won't do much.

If you're looking for a louder tone, try replace the cats with midpipes.

The ATAK is pretty aggressive but give it some time and it will get louder. Like the other guys said, adding high flow cats and LTs will really wake it up.

Also most exhuasts get louder with time, so consider that

As stated all you got was an axel back system. Adds very little sound.

Want a litte more, do a cat back and eliminate the resonators.

Still not enough, try hi flow cats or catless midpipes.

STILL NOT LOUD ENOUGH? Get some long tubes.

AND STILL NOT ENOUGH??? get some cutouts welded in just after the long tubes....

you need to get rid of the stock resonators and put an aftermarket x-pipe in and then you will hear it. i have a 304 ss borla mid pipe and x-pipe assembly that i will sell $400 like new. i have no use for it since i got my arh header system.

Axel back will only really change the tone of the car and get rid of the "bucket" stock muffler system. Sure it will be a little louder but if you want loud, you need to AT LEAST do a Catback system. But as others have said, there is a progression for how loud you want to go.

will mid pipes work with the factory xhaust manifolds or do you need headers?
