I love my exhaust combined with the DP. I've got less than $600 invested. It's quiet at idle, there is absolutely zero drone on the freeway, but when you are into it, it opens up nicely and there's enough snapping and crackling to keep me entertained.

also the heads share similar ports etc and can be bolted onto mk4 blocks. although I didnt think of the fact that it has a slightly bigger turbo (k04 correct?)

and the amount of bends would definitely have an acoustic effect.
