Default What's the quietest TBE for me?

After searching, I can't find quite exactly what I'm looking for. Basically, I want to go Stage 2 with my AcessPORT, but I want to avoid making my exhaust louder than stock, if at all. My parameters are fairly simple:
  • The muffler must be a Prodrive WRSport. I had one on my old car and nothing compares to it.
  • The exhaust must contain at least one catalytic converter
  • I would prefer that the whole thing look relatively close to stock.

So with those parameters in mind, here's what I see as my options:
  • TurboXS Stealthback + Prodrive WRSport
  • MadDad Stealthback + Prodrive WRSport
  • COBB TBE - COBB muffler + Prodrive WRSport

Now, according to those options I see pros and cons to each of them. The TXS Stealthback has a great reputation, but the DP is gigantic and doesn't look close to stock at all. The MadDad is a great piece of metal, but it just doesn't carry that "brand name" appeal as the rest; though I've heard nothing but good comments from those who have bought these products. The COBB piece is my most favored, but I don't know if it's particularly known for being quiet plus I will have to buy the full TBE and then sell the muffler. It's extra time, money, and hassle, but I can justify paying extra for quality and R&D.


So what would my best bet be in terms of volume?

I don't know why I posted this in the EM forum.

Mods: please close/delete this as I'm going to repost it in the 2.0L forum.
