Same for me except I am wanting the power and support for other mods. It's a steel tube longevity can't be super serious. Stainless won't rust unless it gets super heated and the chromium is gone.

How about a different approach- a reasonably priced titanium exhaust? Similar to bc forged offering reasonably priced forged rims..

How "loud" loud is is extremely subjective. "aggressively loud" will be different person to person. Some people think muffler deletes aren't aggressive, or sound stock.
