Do you have an exhaust?
Do you have an intake?

It should sound better, but if you have stock air box and exhaust you prolly won't hear much of a difference.

slightly louder, but nowhere near the difference you noticed when you did the catback.

I usually cut the HP gains in half and go by that. You really never know what the gains are or if you really even gain anything without dyno'ing before and after. You can instances all the time that Performance parts actually loose HP.
