Borla Exhaust Question

I have an 04 V6 6sp Coupe. I love the car and how quiet it is on the highway, but am disappointed at how quiet the engine/exhaust are. I am considering buying the Borla exhaust and AEM intake for the car. I of course would like any hp gains but I really want a deeper and slightly louder sound.

I have a few questions:
1) Does it drone on the higway? I really don't want it to be too much louder at cruising speeds.

2) Is it obnoxious at idle or normal acceleration?

3) Is it true that you lose torque? (sounds ridiculous)

4) Any other issues or concerns out there?

Thanks so much.

No droning AT ALL. Its like 30% louder, very deep good sound! I love it.

Not obnoxious at idle nor acceleration.

Lose torque, Id say no but I dont have dyno proof, only butt dyno and I felt a slight increase for sure.

No other issues.
