remus vs. uuc sound

so ive got the uuc tse, real loud, on the inside too, its the way its supoosed to be, its not messed up, niiiiice tone to it, but a littel too loud fo rmy taste, but damn, i defently noticed a performance improvement, nothing that wowed, but a little improvement, my question is is if i take off just the muffler part of the uuc and put in the remus, will it still be just as loud on the inside? is it the muffler that makes it that loud or is it the fact that i took out the resonator???

It will be quieter with a Remus with one resonator taken out. It will be deeper but not louder. It's not the missing resonator that makes the UUC sound loud. It's the twin can design. The missing resonators just help the flow and increase sound a tiny bit. People have taken out resonators on their AA, dinan, supersprint, hamann, acs and remus and other exhuasts but they still arent as loud as the uuc. maybe the tri flo with a missing resonator will be louder than the UUC TSE.

I got the R/D and it is very quiet. The Dinan CAI is what made it sound sweet. Especially in my power band.
