The length of the wastegate pipe and the location of the outlet both make a difference in the sound level.
Mine is about 8" long and has a 90* bend at the end pointing it toward the ground. With a stock Euro muffler there is a marked transition from the growl of an excellerating engine to "the gates of hell" opening up when boost hits. Loud when you want it to be.
