Which is quieter? Apexi WS2 or Twin Loop?

So I've heard reviews on both the Apexis WS2 cat-back and also the twin loop muffler on ebay, for example the OBX one. People say they're generally quiet but I was wondering if anyone has had a change to compare the two against each other? If so which is quieter?

Edit: And I'm not just going to weld the twin loop onto a stock exhaust by the way. It would be 2.5" collector mod to Megan header, Magna Flow 2.5" cat, and custom 2.5" piping all the way back.

I would think the WS-2 based on videos I've watched of both. Most people report the twin-loop as being pretty loud as well, but not "ricey."

Re: Which is quieter? Apexi WS2 or Twin Loop?

The idea behind a twin-loop was always to quiet them down about, and I know on cars like the Mitsubishi FTO it's almost an obligatory fitment to shut them up. From what I've seen though I get the impression that rather than type of muffler the thing that will make the difference is who makes it and what happens inside it.

I went from an N1 to an ebay twin loop. Big difference. Twinloop is much more quiet.
