Sorry mate but Firestorm = LOUD I'm afraid

Best thing to so is maybe wrap the centre section and the pipe leading up to the rear back box with exhaust wrap.

Other than that maybe sound proof the boot to try and limit the noise in the cabin ops:

Exhaust wrap has 2 benefits Mike

Firstly it can help to reduce some of the noise from the pipe itself - especially if you double wrap the pipe....and secondly it keeps the heat inside the exhaust hence the gasses flow quicker maintaining performance. A number of people wrap the down pipe but if you can I'd suggest double wrapping the centre section itself and the pipework that leads to the baffle box on the back box. I have a suspicion however that even with this you may well need to sound proof the boot and underneath the seats in the back.

The Firestorm is just a loud system I'm afraid
