I take it they didn't increase the sound very much.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. I was surprised and disappointed with how loud the change was. Tork's releasing a silenced midpipe soon, I understand. I will likely give it a try. My first time starting the car in the garage was a bit of a jolt. All that said, the wife's never said a word about it. I know it's there. It's changed the whole sound inside the cabin to something more raspy than I like.

Don't get me wrong, it's nothing like I expect a full exhaust to sound. But it's definitely more than many seem to admit.

Do you have stock exhaust for rest.

Exhaust is all stock except the SSR mids, yes.

In the ear of the beholder:) increased it enough for me to line trunk, with a window down I can hear a difference for sure.

At the same time it is still quiet enough for wife not to complain:)

I lined mine, as well. Still hear it, though not as loudly, even with windows up.

Would it not be cheaper to add resonators instead of buying new midpipes from tork?

Well, I have no idea. I know the OEM midpipes were fine, but constrictive. My plan is to go midpipe-back some day. But for now I was trying to get the midpipe taken care of. They wren't a perfect bolt-up and they've created a louder rasp I don't care for. There are sound comparisons with the MBRP exhaust between the SSR (or Ark?) midpipes and the new, silenced Tork midpipes and they sound great - albeit via recording. I'll wait for more reviews. But having a local shop hack into the SSRs that didn't impress me with their fitment to begin with doesn't make sense to me.

I'm changing nothing for now.

Just wondering has anyone thought about fabbing a 3in straight pipe if not a 2.5in pipe for the primary downpipe? I am looking for ideas before buying a lap3 catless primary downpipe. If fabbing a straight piped catless pipe in place of the primary downpipe is possible I wanted to look into that option possibly

Depends on what u want my customs shop quoted me $1300 for set of custom made stainless with 300cell German cats. Lowest u can go and pass emissions and no need for code suppressed. They build for $500000 cars and his woman has a stinger, they are in middle of doing full turbo back system
