Default How will i sound?! Predictions!

I currently have stock headers, short ram intake, and a jdm sti genome axleback. To add to my collection, im getting OBX headers installed in a couple of weeks as soon as my inspection passes.

The setup will look something like this -->

Obx Headers, Obx Test Pipe, Stock midpipe, and the Genome axleback

what are some predictions on how it will sounds? I've been reading a lot and people are tellin me that i will not sound like civic but nothing like a wrx at the same time unless i downgrade to borla replicas.. and these were a gift so i really cant be doin that..

so let me know
videos, pictures, sound clips anything that will help
thanks

Prolly high-pitched (duh) and loud.

OBX headers are good though. So it'll sound good..

well the car already has the genome on there and i go up my street in 2nd so they are aware of its loudness. i will eventually tell them that i have the headers installed and they would not mind about that all they care about is the cat delete.. they told me to go with a hfc but the headers are stainless steal and if i wanted to chop and weld one in place it would be a lot of money to get a tig welder for the job

Going catless will only make it louder and raspy.

The cats act as minor mufflers.

well i do want it louder but not raspy so im guessing a high flow cat will get rid of the rasp but at the same time lower the noise a little.. but im sure it will still be louder than what it is at the moment

correctomundo?

My HFC did not do anything to get rid of the rasp. so don't hold your breath. It surely wont hurt, though.

is the JDM genome the one with the red STI emblem on the side of the tip? that's a sexy looking exhaust.
