I would be happy to be proven wrong ...
At least on my car the Dinan is about one step back from the Kelleners without x-pipe. Definitley quieter on the freeway though than the Kelleners car I drove. The Kellener's with x-pipe was not for the meak.........Chart505 said:Good info- thats too loud for me, maybe I will just drill some holes in the mufflers.....ouich
I have an NSX with the B&B exhaust, even though its a V6, it is WAY loud, really too loud for a long trip, IMO, but I'm an old fart at 48.
Thanks for the invite- I used to attend SDSU and lived in a shack off of Montezuma- probably worth $2M nowhihaSDImolaS2 said:At least on my car the Dinan is about one step back from the Kelleners without x-pipe.

The Tubi Rumore had a higher more exotic sound (vs big block sound ala dinan/kelleners) and might fit your ticket. The stock Tubi was pretty quiet unless you got on it. Stock Supersprint seemed pretty comparable, although a bit different tone than the Dinan.
Best bet since this is so subjective is to find some friendly owners with the exhausts you are interested in and beg some test rides to find what you really like. Should be able to find a few in the ATL area.
The Dinan SSK is a recent addition (probably long since you car had S2 installed) and is not part of the package. I am not sure there have even been any reviews of the dinan SSK in this board.
If you end up in SAN you are welcome to a test ride. Have a hard time believing you would find the S2 too quiet if the B&B is too loud. Think this is about as loud as you can get without droning. Maybe my car is just louder than most S2s.
I guess "quiet" is subjective. I saw Paul's car when it was first being tuned with the S2 package. (at that time the car was owned by someone else)SDImolaS2 said:If the S2 stuff was just installed you may want to give it a few months to break in. My neighboors would not call mine quite, and the wife can hear me coming home 3 blocks away even when I am loafing. No sneaking in unnoticed late at night.
Then again perfection in an exhaust is so subjective............
