Benefit to Quieter Exhaust?

Why yes, there is! I recently installed a 3" SS Magnaflow Competition catback and it was positively "quiet" (very deep and rumbling) compared to the stock system w/ resonator (L99) and no mufflers. I liked this setup and was happy with it. It was very "natural" sounding. But there was HP to be released in my supercharged setup so I made the switch. Very happy with the results in that department.

So what is the benefit to a quieter exhaust you ask?

I can hear the supercharger howl now!!

getting ready to ditch my muffler delete and get the ARH exhaust. too much drone on the highway when i wanna go 75+ mph. some of the roads out here have 75 and 80 mph speed limits

with the muffler delete, x-pipe, and headers, someone came up to me one time and asked if i put a diesel in my car.

My man! How's things? Ouch on the "diesel" comment....

I didn't have any drone. But when mashing on the loud pedal it was just louder than the SC was! Now I can hear it beautifully. Bad thing is, I stay in it longer and longer cuz I'm addicted to it now....
