Default How much quieter: 4" N1 Tip > Perrin Dual-Tip

I like the looks of the Perrin and can't take my SS Autochrome/XS Power grapefruit-launcher now that I'm running a VF39 and have to rev it up more for boost. I know the Perrin is supposed to be the most godawful loud dual-tip but can anyone give me an idea (or actual experience) of how (if any) much quieter it might be than one of these? I'm not looking for a quiet exhaust by any means, I just don't want to spend $500+ and end up with something just as loud as I've got.



Thanks,
Dan

I couldn't tell you how much louder the perrin dual tip is compared to that one. Heck it's the only exhaust i heard on a subaru since I'm pretty much the only one in the county here who has a modified subaru. All i know is it attracts attention. The local cops leave me alone since they know who i am. All i can say is i left it in at a mechanic shop for a little problem for them to fix. I was working outside and i heard my car take off down the road. the shop is 5 miles away also. but anyway, i'll see if i can get a audio recording or something. maybe one of the cops has decibal reader. sorry for the long spill

why not check out the offerings from Maddad and Borla also. I have heard the Maddad whisper I think it is called in person, and it is barely louder than stock, being 3 inches and all that good stuff.

i had an extremely loud exhaust. no cats, no resonators,all 3". it was louder than any of the other suby's i've heard in person. even the 10 second ones.

how did i fix it? i ordered the Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonator along with a new v-band clamp, fit it up and welded it. i didn't think it would help that much but it seems to have cut the noise by about half.

call now and we'll double the price of the v-band and then knock off 50%.
