Depends on on how loud your regular exhaust is. I have an open pipe on my wastegate and can't hear it open ... 'Course I also can't hear the radio, tire noise, police sirens or de-orbiting space stations. I may need to have my hearing checked or look into slightly more muffling in my muffler so I can enjoy the wastegate more.
