I have RPi GT and love it! The Eisenmann is louder, but with RPi you can build up more sound if it's not loud enough to begin with by adding and x-pipe and/or high flow cats. So if the Eisenmann is too loud up front, you're kind of s.o.l.

Coming from someone with the Rpi GT exhaust, the sound is intoxicating.

I fully agree with you. I've recently added the RPI Gt Sect.1 to the RPI GT headers and Eisenmann Race Sect. 3 and I tell you it's insanely loud. I'm hoping soon to change my E-Race with either the RPI ST or GT Sect. 3, still unsure which though.

Another thing to consider is that the RPI produces power on the dyno, and I dont recall the Eisenmann race has showing gains (most of its appeal I believe was its great sound).

Eisenman is louder. I prefer performance over sound, so I would go with the RPI.

I currently have RPI GT race section 1,2,3 and I could not be happier. With sound and performance.

+1 No hp gains were proven from the E-race. It has a nice sound though. However at the time the E-race system were released there wasn't many exhaust competitors as today. RPI GT is my choice now as they not only have a great sound but performance gain as well.
