The OP ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Was asking ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Maybe I'll try to get a video of my exhaust from in the cabin with the windows up, can barely hear the exhaust and only really notice it when i get on it.

The speed3 has a turbo, so that would make it quiet.

86fiveoh the only option i can think of is doing a setup with a resonator underneath and a muffler out back. I'm thinking if I go to a full 2.5" and run a resonator under the car, and a chambered muffler out back, that should mellow it out and quiet it down some as well
