ORP is not too loud but it does nothing to help the tone of the exhaust, actually hurts the sound. too importy, and I still haven't figured out a way to fix it. The power gains are nice though,but you do lose a little pull from down low. I can't compare it to HFC power gainsince i don't have one. lol

I'd go for the HFC if i had to do it all over again.

The thing is, both those terms are relative to whom you're asking.
I've heard an ORP, and IMHO it is both annoying and loud.
But, as you can already see in this thread, that's not going to be true of everyone you ask.

Here's a good discussion from not too long ago:

Hi Flow Cat?

That gets my vote.
The HFC gives a substantial boost off the line and throughout the mid-range rpm.
^^^Right where you really need it.
And, you will get a louder exhaust with the HFC as it is, especially when you put the pedal to the metal.
