Tip wont do anything, just for looks. Depending on what muffler you get will either increase sound or decrease sound. And an intake will definitely make your car louder when you hit the throttle.

if you just want to hear the engine roar quite a bait louder. just do a K&N Drop In and a snorkel delete. that should do the trick, if its not loud enough then go for a CAI system. if thats not loud enough then you're looking for an exhaust.

I barely noticed a difference with a drop in and snorkel delete. Now if you remove the air box lid, you'll really hear it.

I did the green filter drop in( same as the COBB drop in) and it is a open end filter. It is way louder then the stock filter. do that and you will hear your engine for sure.

you want it loud, get the FS Werks race exhaust. Muffler bolts directly to the flex followed by straight pipe. This tiny muffler replaces two mufflers and a stock resonator.

Yes, fswerks exhaust are quite good, but the welding work are just abit rough. However its a good choice to take into consideration, i'd rather advise you go with the stealth. Its loud enough to get the blood pumping when you floor it. And doesnt annoy you too much when you go on road trips.

If you want a nice rumble to the car, get the Stealth, if you want rally car loud, get the Race

Also an intake always compliments an exhaust, just completes the sound
