I've been looking at the MBRP online but cannot get the soundfiles to download. You can not beat the price(229.00). Looking forward to a review after the break in. I had a Magnaflow on my zx3 and it definitely got louder with use but not obnoxious.

Here's a sound clip of the MBRP with a shorty header. It's a pretty smooth sounding exhaust, and it get's a tad bit louder as you break it in. Nothing too drastic though.

NOw once you add a race header and flexpipe in the mix, it begins to sound a lot more agressive and a little louder. But not too loud.

Note: When I was recording the sound clips, I had the mic placed further out for the raceheader/flex combo, so it sounds louder than what it is.
