Roush Exhaust+HFC sound?

Hey guys, I know there are a couple of Roush exhaust threads out there
(i searched) but i didnt see any that had an answer for my question.

Does anyone here run a HFC with a Roush exhaust on their SVT?

How loud is it? Could I have a video clip of the volume?

My exhaust tone is just too weak for my taste, i need a rumble with some balls in it when i wanna show off and rev out, haha. I wanna make sure its not TOO loud though.

thanks a lot!

EDIT: also one more question, my flexpipe bolts are basically fused to my stock exhaust, is there a higher flow replacement?

roush

i have the roush exhaust and its really loud even with the sock cat. and like all svts its crackles alot. so i put a second muffler on there, a glass pack. it quieted it down but it seemed slower with the more restrictive exhaust. so what i have onmy car now is a gutted stock cat with a roush cat back and a glass pack before the roush. i like the way it sounds but its definately loud. ill see if i cant get a clip of it but mind you it will be with my cell phone.

the lunch box delete sounds ok IMO. The magnaflow exhaust on my zx3 sounded awesome. I think Borla sounds best on SVT's.

Im trying to get the best sound for the money, im very broke so thats why I was going for roush, cuz theyre on sale. Thats why the lunchbox would be even more ideal.

So I cut the third muff out and got a shop to put the piping and tip in place for 40. It sounds great and has a much different sound. In lower RPMs its got a really deep/low throaty sound, and sounds great in the higher RPMs too, its definitlely a good mix of intake sound and jdm pipeyness I would say. Ill post a sound video later!
