compare apples to apples, our hemi's are waay different animals then a subaru or a porsche and will respond to cai's and exhausts differently.. i do agree with you that some do equate loud sound to performance which is humorous. i run the biggest magnaflow because i want it really quiet in the cab but also wanted a better flowing muffler than stock and not sound loud on the street either. As for cai's, I do run a bigger one than most. I really don't dyno much anymore unless it's for a gtg. I do all my performance mod comparisons at the track and a stock cai doesn't flow as much as my engine needs to perform well.
