In Reply to: I had (2) AA's exhausts before getting my Tri-Flo posted by ChewToy on January 30, 2001 at 07:51:16:

Is their a big difference between the quiet and loud version?
How does the quiet sound from inside the car? Outside the car? Anyone have comparison sound or video clips?

The AA is a nice exhaust, but people have mixed feelings over it's overall diamter as far as piping. From what I have read it has one of the smaller diameter pipes out there. The Gen I tips cracked, so they sent me another exhaust with Gen II tips welded on, I personally did not like the appearance of them. And now.. they came out with Gen III. What next!? To me the AA was just too quiet. It doesn't really sound that mean unless you are at WOT and over 5k. Then it sounds pretty sweet, but still a bit on the quiet side for me. I ended up swapping my AA for a Tri-Flo and YES IT's LOUD. It was giving me headaches it was so loud. I ended up getting some B&B baffles for it and now I love it. :) Very very deeeeep sound, a deeep sound that AA or supersprint doesn't have, that doesn't necessarily make it better, this is a matter of taste. To me the AA sounds a bit too close to stock, and since you are buying it for the weight savings, the look, and the sound, imo you should get something that difinetly makes a difference. I would suggest you get a Tri-Flo, possibly the quiet version. They have sweet 3" rolled tips, (my favorite) sound MEAN as hell, and are superlight. :)
