This is how mine sounds with a Steeda SRI:

It's definitely loud, especially in the morning before the engine's warmed up, and you can hear it when you get on it. Other than that it's not too bad when cruising. I've driven with it for 6 hrs straight before (road trip), and I didn't have any issues with it droning too much on the highway.

It's perfect if you're looking for that extra "oomph" and a sportier sound, but don't want to wake the neighbors up coming home at 3am.

pretty sure he's talking about the street exhaust, not the stealth. the street is a 2nd cat back and I haven't heard of anyone running it yet.

Oh, my bad. I just assumed "stealth" when he said "street." The only street exhaust video I can find is the one from FSWerks:

I'm not sure who's running one.

"2nd catback"

isnt that a resonator, not a cat? quite a difference between the two.

Nope. Most foci have a second, smaller cat right after the flex pipe. Since the pcm doesn't monitor that one, the race/stealth exhausts delete it, but if you need it for emissions for some reason, they made the street exhaust.
