Its not actually LOUD per se - just deep. And its actually not that bad while moving - its loud inside the car but behind it or to the side you don't really hear it much at all - probably because the Turbo takes most of the sound out of it once it starts spinning.

I didn't notice a differnt in my car since I bought it with the exhust but I did notice when bryan came up, that his car seemed to not pull after about 4.3k and mine pulls all the way through.

And like griffin said its not loud its just deep with strong pressure waves

I know if you go to www.hksusa.com you can watch video clips with the hi-power installed to give you a pretty good idea, I would say the closest is the evo on their site.

A full exhaust including DP makes a very nice difference in spool and power.. These are the things you should do before you start to increase the boost on a stock engine.

Help the car breath better...

Do you have teh know how to just be able to buy parts and fab it up yourself instead of buying kits and adapters?

I have looked into it and to just take the existing tube
and add some SS line to give it flexibility isn't all that much if you know how to put it together.

And Yes I would say it is worth it since my turbo line cracked after hitting my exhaust on a speed bump that I have to go over EVERY DAY
