Its a respectable tone. Its deep with a burble. It does drone when you are going up a hill or trying to pass someone. But when I set my cruise control at 70 MPH, its pretty quiet inside the car. You can still hear the exhaust, its just not that loud.

I got 37 MPG when I went to Midland, TX from Austin, TX. About 330 miles one way. I got 36 MPG on my way back from Midland, TX.

Thanks for the heads up since I might look into the stealth system since I'm over the "look at me" loud exhaust and just want the performance but still maintain a nice sound.

I'm interested to know how loud the stealth actually is. I like my cars super quiet. But I'd like the performance. I have the ability to weld my own system but wouldn't know where to start on buying a muffler

If you want quiet. Go with the stealth. Its really quiet but gives you some note and performance

Loud doesn't mean quicker in most cases but if I don't buy a system I might just do a custom muffler/tip setup and Magnaflow or Borla are some options but the sound of both brands has been hit and miss on various cars. I just don't want the obnoxious Kazoo sound you get from 4 bangers.

I am personally on the fence between the FSW Stealth set up and the FRPP set up. I would like to keep the care mostly FRPP and Steeda but from what everyone is saying here the FSW set up seems like the way to go.
