It is too loud. I had one on for a year and a half. After you hear mine you will want a Monty.

Well have "fun" dealing with that thing on the street. The thing is that it's actually not bad while the revs are up, it's the idle that's annoying. You can't even talk over it. Here is a pic taken 2 days after I bought my car and installed the zork.

My air cooled VW's were used as daily transportation. I'm well aware of how loud it is. My brother had a 650plus hp street driven(not daily) eclipse turbo with a "shorty"(zork but in DSM speak) off the turbo. My 930 is not my main car and will welcome some noise. My C36 AMG , and Corrado are sooooo quiet. I want to rattle my teeth again!

Even with baffles the 930 still sounds loud...but in a good sound way...not the loud car that just lost its muffler way.

I leave for work very early. the summer days i drive the 930 in...i'm internally saying sorry to the neighbors as I start it up...but smiling as I slowly drive out of the neighborhood towards the freeway.

My husband and I and our dogs (bulldog goes to the door...lab/corgi goes to the window) and even several neighbors...know when the 930 is a block away and rolls in to the drive way. Seriously...it is a cool deep sound...not offensive in my opinion.

Hummm...and just like when we know our neighbors college age son gets home late......i wonder if he now regrets his aftermarket set-up...lol.

You have options when it comes to sound level and aesthetics.
The Zork is too loud for the street in my opinion but some like it. Makes your 930 a total hooligan machine.
Here is a small YouTube of my system on a 965. Sound is the same.

That sounds perfect! Mean but not too loud.
