Default Ark Grip Quiet After Short Break-in Period

Hello,

I've searched around but have been unable to come up with any substantial information.

Last week I had a brand new Ark Grip catback exhaust installed - I was already running Fast Intentions Resonated Test Pipes. The sound was as loud, deep, and perfect as I hoped it would be; unfortunately, 4 days later (having driven ~40 miles), I found my exhaust became substantially quiet overnight, and has remained this way for the past few days. Specifically, it has lost almost all of its roar in the 1-3K range, and the rasp of my TPs is much more pervasive. This is not a case of just getting used to it, as it's only been a few days and the difference is night and day.

What I'm looking for is any insight as to whether this quiet-after-break-in is normal, seeing as most sources state that the exhaust should get louder and deeper over time. Thank you for your help.

I can't speak for the ark grip exhaust, however, when I had fast intentions exhaust installed it was almost unbearably loud at first making me think I've made a huge mistake, but thankfully over the course of about a week of casual driving it significantly quieted down (and personally got too quiet).
