Yes it is reallllllllllllly loud, not at idle but when your on it it is. (in person today) Even with a FSWerks Stealth kit that thing still screams. Hopefully well find you a solution to the noise problem, both with the exhaust and the motor.

When I originally did my header all I had was a 14"x4" magnaflow muffler behind the header. It was ungodly loud even at idle.
