Exhaust isn't loud after installing headers and h pipe

I installed JBA Long tube headers JBA off Road H Pipe and JBA Axleback on my 2014 GT the car is loud under wide open throttle butt really quite at idle and driving speeds I tried a magnaflow axleback installed it the other day and same result could it be because I'm running 3 inch exhaust from headers back? Anyone else have this problem or could it just be the Jba H pipe would swapping to the X pipe make any difference?

My car with Kooks Shortys, Lethal catless H, 3" resonators and Corsa Extreme mufflers is virtually silent when cruising and i love it. My last car was a straight pipe turbo 4 cylinder, and i enjoyed that for a while, but its nice to actually be able to think and hold a conversation in the cabin now lol. It may just be the nature of this motor, i dont know that it runs particularly loud, especially shifting sub 2500 rpms like i try to do.

I watch several videos on YouTube and everyone's video seems pretty loud I just don't know if its the 3 inch exhaust and I have less back pressure now or if swapping out my off road H for a off road x would make a difference.

These cars are generally quiet at idle and lower RPM. You won't (easily) get that typical muscle car rumble/loping at idle due to the Ti-VCT. The only easy way to get that is via a ghost tune.. which just simulates a lopey cam. There's zero performance benefit to them and they destroy fuel economy at idle.. but they can sound cool at idle if that's all you want.

Admit it you were going through exhaust thread withdrawals.
