Are you just curoius to how loud it can be for your personal taste, or just want some video clips to be able to hear it? Vented into the downpipe is basically gona sound however a normal exhaust setup sounds, depending on midpipe and catback. Vented into the atmostphere, regardless of midpipe and catback, will be loud and have sort of a "super bike" sound to it. At least thats what everyone always said my 7 sounded like with the wastegate vented into the atmosphere. Very very screaming loud.

Very big, very loud superbike.



No other car can come close for sound level short of a race engine with very high compression and open exhaust.

a single setup will be quieter than the stock twins in N/S mode. A resonated midpipe(borla is what I had prior) will make it quieter of course.

Vented wastegate will not affect your sound level while tooling around town, of course.



I don't think I've ever heard non-sequential twins, but my car will set off other car alarms just idling by in the underground parking, with a downpipe, midpipe and HKS Carbon/Ti catback.



The size of your turbine housing I'm sure has some effect on sound level.
