I expected mine to be louder as well, but I'm pretty happy with the volume the exhaust has now. Any louder would just be too shouty for me, and annoying on the freeway. And yes, it does it much louder at WOT and redline.

still scared to redline it. not enough power for that. plus i can't afford a new engine, and i've been through too many cars already.

I usually shift at 4k. Then I adjust higher or lower depending on desired rate of acceleration.
