I can't "get around" your ranking system so I'll attempt to compare it to the stock exhaust and the Bigshot's I have. Idling V&H's are a little louder then stockers but have a deeper throatier sound. Bear in mind I have baffles and with nearly 10,000 miles on them so they are well worn in. While cruising they are about 20% louder then stockers and again deeper and throatier...actually a very pleasing sound on a long cruise....as well as not being into loud pipes, I don't believe in music while riding....ruins my riding experience as well as having plenty of music rolling around in my brain from the 60's. :D On all out acceleration the V&H's are about 75% louder then stock...maybe more,it's a very nice sound without being obnoxious. V&H's are harder to scrap the forward lower pipe then the stockers as they are up higher.... I have one small scrap in that area and I'm lowered 2.25 and tend to weigh "ahem" a bit more then I should. I like my Bigshot's even though they are not the best aftermarket pipe available. I do think they are the best pipe for a 2 into 2 if retaining the "classic' look is your preference without having to re-engineer a set of Roadhouse slipon's. With more cold air coming in and a fuel programmer you can probably increase your HP and TQ close to 10%. I don't know my numbers but it pulls harder and smoother throughout the entire rpm range now.
