Magnuson Hearbeat vs TVS2300 - Just how much quieter is a heartbeat?

Hey guys, I'm the guy that wishes these PD blowers made no whine sound. Call me what you will but I don't like the sound of a glorified power steering pump under the hood at full song. I've heard that the Heartbeat's are quieter, but just how much quieter are they? 5% ? 10% ? It's still a TVS2300 rotor pack, so I'm wondering how much quieter they actually are, if anything? Not to mention the Heartbeat carries a significant premium over the normal TVS2300.

I can't hear mine at all. A friend has a Whipple and I can hear it. My hearing is not the best though.

Open cut-outs will drown out most whines, but not the F-1X cog. But hey, I like watching the heads snap around when I pull into a car meet. LOL, its not the looks that get the attention, but the whine sound. Just sayin

Thanks but I don't have cut-outs and don't go to car meets. I just like to spin tires and don't care what other people think, only what I think lol.

Having heard both here more than a few times, the Heartbeat is significantly quieter than the traditional TVS.
