UUC is a very nice "middle of the road" exhaust in terms of decibel level. It is substantially louder than stock, but not super-loud like some others (Mozart, TriFlow, etc). Yet, it has much of the nice low rpm burble and throatiness of the super-loud exhausts. Thus, unlike AA, you dont have to nail it above 4k rpm to know that you have an aftermarket exhaust. Unlike AA, the UUC sounds beautifully deep and throaty (not loud) just cruising around town. Unlike the super-loud exhausts, you don't shatter windows everytime you need to pass that old lady in front of you. No droning, either. 25lb weight savings. 6hp and 10 ft/lb gain. The straight tips are staggered like the stockers, but a bit larger, plus they're rolled and angled. Gives it a bit more visual presence, but doesn't scream "look at me, I'm hear to make hella noise", like DTM's or huge straight tips do. UUC w/ DTM tips are available too, if you dig that.

I going to purchase a new exhaust and wondering if anybody can give me some first hand experience. I am looking for something that is louder under acceleration but not so loud that it droans when I am cruising at highway speeds. Any suggestions on which way to go? Personal experiences.
