Quick question, does it need time to break-in for the sound to get a bit louder?

I know it has that weird burning smell at first (which I am having now), but I'm hoping it gets a bit louder...right now, there's not too much difference from stock almost :dunno:

I will post pics soon and soundclips once it gets louder hopefully!

Did you remove the rear-most resonator by installing the "sound pipes"? If you didn't it won't be very loud. I have an HP on a 330 and it was louder than stock on the first day. Get the sound pipes - you be happy with the sound then!

Yeah, I installed the sound pipes too, which removed the rear resonator. But for some reason it's still not too loud.

I think it's partially because I'm coming from the UUC TSE1, which was screaming at most rpms (I liked it a lot, just thought it was time to switch to something else).

But comparatively, the Race exhaust isn't too loud, but I can tell that it's getting louder each time I drive it. So far I've put about 200 miles on it, and hopefully it'll get louder.

Did yours get louder after some mileage?

They don't look like momo sports because on the momo sports, the split spokes are a bit thinner.
