Default Is the Borla X-pipe a LOT louder than the stock one?

First those of you who installed one, is the Borla X-pipe a LOT louder than the stock one? Or would you say not a whole bunch louder on an otherwise stock exhaust?

I did the borla x-pipe first.. much improved!

I did ARH mid length headers w/ high flow cats second (no change axle back) ..

Crazy loud! I definitely suffered permanent hearing loss during the Dyno tune!

I’d say about 20% louder.

If you have NPP you will notice a big difference at cold start and a huge difference at WOT. Also I have that nice exhaust pop on down shifts.
