Default HKS vs Amuse

I'm looking around for an exhaust but have some reservations. On my old 350 I had a true dual Injen exhaust with Titek test pipes that you could hear from 6 blocks away. I just listened to the Amuse R1000 on a thread here and fell in love. I never got pulled over for my exhaust but it did give me and my passengers headaches(literally had to keep excedrin in the car) and woke everyone up on my block when I got home from work at 1am or later. I still get home late, so I'm debating b/w the HKS Hi-Power with HFC or the Amuse R1000. Looking for best performance, weight(obviously goes to amuse....I think), and sound(something that will sound satisfying through tunnel runs) that I can live with on a daily basis. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

The title to the best choice you can live with on a daily driver has to go to the HKS easily. But, the R1000 can probably be tolerable as long as you keep the stock cats on the car so it is really a toss up at the R1000 is obviously quite a bit lighter as well.

I think I might go with the Amuse just for the sheer unique factor. If not then ill go with the HKS....Go big or go home!
