I'm starting to consider buying a quiet exhaust.

I have the Tomei right now. Before I had the Blitz, which was quiet. I also have the AMS test pipe, widemouth downpipe, and 272/272 cams.

Before I loved the noise. It was cool setting off car alarms. It was cool being louder than most other cars at car meets. Now, though, it's become a real PITA. I generally get home very late and I feel like I'm waking up all of my neighbors. I set off my girlfriend's neighbors' car alarms whenever I go over there for anything. I can't really talk in my car because of the drone.

I basically kind of want my car to sound... normal? Not as quiet as stock, but not like this. Anyone else change their mind about being loud like me?

I agree with you. My Evo VIII was obnoxiously loud. When I turned the car on the dishes inside would rattle and the neighbors weren't too thrilled rolling home at 2-3 am. I have the Greddy SE on now and love it because there is zero drone and if a cop is behind me I can drive the car where he would never even know i had aftermarket exhaust (minus the way it looks), but at WOT it sounds like a sex and is loud imo.

T1R has a good note to it and is not loud. Just my 2 cents.

I'm not sure if it would mess up your tune but you could get silencers made...
edit: my Agency power exhaust came with them... not that I use them.

I have an ETS V2 catback, test pipe and O2 dump on my FP Red. I like the sound under WOT but cruising on the highway is so annoying because of all the drone. I've been thinking about getting a different cat back.

I went from Ultimate Racing TBE with Test Pipe to Resonated Test Pipe to Mini Muffler Test Pipe. The Mini Muffler Test Pipe really reduced the droning in the cabin when decelerating. I am finally happy with my set up; still sounds like sex druing WOT. :D

Amuse's exhaust is quiet. ANd maybe you could find the ARC exhaust somewhere, it's quiet too. Or the Greddy SE, though it's only 2.75". I'm just mentioning JDM possibilities.

I painted my silencer black on my Cobalt SS Turbo. Can't even see it.
I never even thought to paint them :duh:

Hmmm... might look up this mini muffler test pipe. Does it affect performance? By that I mean drastically, if I loose 5hp I'm going to survive.

^No loss in performance. The Mini Muffler is still 3" all the way through. No loss of spool what so ever. My cabin def got quieter after I installed it. I just wished I bought this from the start instead of spending all the extra :$: on the other test pipes :duh:.
