Exhaust sound?

Heyya people!, I've noticed that you can't really hear the borla cat-back well your in the car, so what would it be like if I got a ford racing shorty header? and a focus central high flow cat and a focus central flex pipe, and a AEM short ram intake(getting for now), and does a 65mm throttle body make a gurble or something?

yes, I'd like a louder exhaoust note, and want to hear it a little in my car, I don't have a head unit or anything, so It be fun to hear the rumble of a exhaust, but would those other mods, make it louder? or alot louder? or? make people be like, WTF is that niccccccce sound?

I don't think so, they jus had to order a new rubber hanger. thats all i know...and take out the backseats huh? that be kinda cool, then I wouldn't have to take so many ppl in my car, hate driving a bunch of ppl around! and have wieght reduction..but it look empty, prolly make a roll cage or sumtin..like those rally cars lol
