Well, if you want to keep it legal in CA, it's 70% front, any % rear.

Exhaust only sounds deep like that on a cold start. It gets pretty quiet when warmed up. I have a hard rev sample at around :45 of this clip:

I kinda agree, however, I think the exhaust is louder down low around (2-4k) rpm vs high. The engine noise totally takes over after 5k rpm.

You are right. But it's still a bit more aggressive than stock up high. Personally, I think it's perfect.

Is your car lowered in any way? I only ask because someone on your Flickr post asked about the tires rubbing. Or are you using rims larger than 18"?

(Sorry, kinda new to all this)

Sure, I am lowered on KW V2s, the rear needs to be raised a bit. It does rub slightly on hard turns with passengers and I have modified fenders. Hope that helps
