I have had a 2.5" "quiet" Brullen Cat-back exhaust, since October. Really do love the sound. Very deep, it rumbles when you let off the gas, but is pretty quiet when cruising. Engine ran a lot smoother through the power range. Too.

Although, this is the RS25 forums, there were several threads at the "i-club's" forums that had different sound comparisons between the Brullen and the Stromung.

Yesterday, I finally got my Brullen Headers on, so now I have a complete Brullen package. It changed the tone of the exhaust quite a bit. I like it much better, it's not as deep as it was but "cleaner" some how. Hard to explain. I haven't really had a chance to "test" it yet. But the engine just sounds smoother, like it's not working as hard. Maybe I'll do a better review after I've had it awhile.

Slim,

I remember that after I installed the Cat-back, I was wondering if in fact, Brullen messed up and sent me the "loud" version instead of the "quiet" version. (I'm still not positive which version I actually have.) It was louder than stock, by a quite a bit. It has a distinct deep drone to it. My girlfriend always says that she knows when I'm coming home, because she can hear the car a block away. She says that it wasn't necessarily loud, just that the car makes a very distinct sound. It's that horizontal engine, that makes that special sound. :) Also, I got the 2.5 inch (at the time I'd thought I'd go turbo some day). Now, I'm thinking SuperCharger( come on Templar!!) So I don't know if the size would make much of difference on the sound.

Anyway, now that the headers are on, it seems like that deep drone is gone. But the growl is more distinct. Again, these are just initial impressions. It just doesn't seem as loud. I'd make some wav files, but have no recording equipment.

Again, do a search at the i-club forums and I know there was several threads that had wav files from all the different exhaust company's.

Slim,
