Insanely loud?

Hey guys,

Iv already got the resonator delete done on my L99. Replaced with X pipe and flowmaster outlaw mufflers... the setup is pleasingly loud

If I was to install kooks or pfadt long tube headers, how much louder do you think its going to get?

Should I be saving for headers and a new set of mufflers in the case that it is extremely loud?

Thing is, i dont mind the sound, the cops however, not so much

Also what do you think, kooks vs pfadt, money isnt an issue.

EDIT:
I will definitely order from one of the sponsers from camaro5 so pm me header promotions sponsors!

Very very loud. You will basically have nothing muffling the volume. Now, HF cats will cut down on rasp.

Depends on your cops, but I know the ones here don't care if u have loud exhaust.

I'd go pfadt if money wasn't an option, great quality and gains.

I wouldn't worry about buying more mufflers. Headers will make it louder but it won't be "get a ticket loud" unless you are WOT. I'm running straights off of headers and catless. Its sounds good to me and is loud but not too lout at an idle or cruising. At WOT its crazy deafening loud. You won't have to worry about getting a ticket for being too loud at cruising speeds.

Will HF cats cut down on possible HP gains?

It's been shown that HFC's show little if any loss in HP compared to no cats at all.

No loss of power, they flow like straight pipes. And make it sound better, cut down on that smell, help the environment as others have said above
