Its not going to be as quiet as stock. However, cats with a mid-mount magnaflow and 2 Borla XS muflers is nice and quiet. I dont like loud exhausts, and I am very pleased with the sound level on it. As far as gains go, its hard to say. The SOTP meter picked up a bit of a change. Keep in mind the more stuff you put in the way of the exhaust gasses, the more backpressure you're going to create.
Heres my question: If the car is being built for stereo, you dont think its worth it to mod it for speed, and you want it as quiet as stock.... why dont you just stay with the stock exhaust? Seems like alot of trouble for nothing to me.
