It's hard to elaborate, but at times it's unbearably loud. That's cause I'm only running one muffler, which is how the system comes.
I think a resonator should calm it down just a tad, which is all I want. If you plan on running a CAT, you shouldn't have any issues as that takes away the raspyness. Not sure how a bone stock VR6 would behave but mine backfires like a mofo when going on/off throttle or when revving down to a stop. It's awesome stuff so only a resonator would allow me to keep that.
I would definitely say leave the CAT on if you don''t want ridiculous sound.
When I got my 2.5" exhaust done at this shop the guy first did it without the CAT (even thought I told him I wanted cat-back) and the sound was too loud for me so he put the cat back on and now my car has that perfect vr6 chewbacca sound
I regret not having recorded how it sounded with and without it.

Nice cars turn heads...Corrados break necks!
please run a Burns muffler they sound amazing on a vr...
not that this is a corrado or a 12v, but it's a VR with a Burns 3inch muffler, test pipe. You can only really get a feel for it at the begining of the video because the rest is open wastegate... but the begining sounds really good.
I am currently running an MBS 3" system but am reserving judgement for when I have a complete interior installed. Currently it drones badly in high gear (5th or 6th) below 2,500rpms. It's sweet spot currently appears to be 3k. I'll know more come spring.
The over-axle pipe does knock, so I'll also be taking some wood & hammer to it to bend it enough to clear.
I am not running and cat, and am on OBD2, but have no backfiring. Though I might end up installing a cat in the future (smell is a bit much) as well as a single resonator.

I have an old EIP system which consist of 3" stainlesssteel turbo back to a mangaflow muffler. I love the way it sounds, when ever I drive it people are telling me how good it sounds. I also don't like the way the MBS tip comes out of the bumper, sort of looks weird to me
