Slip-on exhaust vs. full exhaust sound

Has anyone heard the difference between having only a slip-on vs. having a full exhaust setup? I am not looking for much in HP gains because I feel my R6 is plenty fast for the streets and dont care for HP as much as sound. And the cost difference is so huge that I would rather get a slip-on and get some better sound but if the sound is so different between the two I may consider the full exhaust.

I always hear bikes riding around from like a mile away and I love that sound and mine is just too quiet (stock 08 R6). ANy suggestions on manufacturers to go with?

If you are purely looking for a sound improvement then get a slip on of your choice along with a new midpipe.

After searching around I found some slip-ons to cost up to $500 and some a little more while full exhaust systems start at $750+ so... what is a good slip on and what is a good full exhaust because of the price difference is not that much I will get thefull exhaust to get all the benefits...

It really comes down to personal preference. Most people get a yoshi slip on and call it a day. A good full exhaust system usually ends up costing a little less than double that of a good slip on of the same brand. Companies that I personally like are yoshi, leo vince, and gytr; but there's plenty of others too.

It's like AwsmGy said, it's all in the midpipe. That will make the most diff. Yoshi's R&D is funded by Suzuki. Don't get me wrong, it's a good brand but better for a GSXR than an R6. Akrapovik tends to be used the most because of it's sound, performance and looks. You can get a custom r6 t-tuner (midpipe) for about $150. I know u said that it didn't matter but you will gain up to 20hp from the t-tuner and a huge diff in sound too.

Most of Jamez's information is correct, however I thought I should point out that you will not get anywhere near 20hp from upgrading your exhaust. Even with a high end full exhaust, PCIII, and upgraded air filter you would be lucky to get 15hp. To get a major difference in sound you are going to need to go with a full system or at least a different mid pipe. On a stock 06+ R6 the part of the exhaust that a slip on replaces does not do much to the sound.

Can someone show me where I can purchase a T-Tuner Midpipe? I searched google but all I get are videos and various forum posts of people saying they installed it. Cannot find a place to buy one.

Will this midpipe cause any problems with passing emissions/inspections? Based on various posts I have read I will go with a T-tuner midpipe (if i ever find one) and a slip-on exhaust and call it a day.

Its one or the other, you cant get the MJS Header and a midpipe, you get the MJS header with the mid pipe welded on or you weld a t tuner to your stock header, and trust me that is ALOT or work to do. Get the MJS header I have it along with about 1000 other people on here.
