I too have a Stebro on my 200.  Full system, including cats.  It is louder than
stock, but not oppressive.  On the highway, as long as I'm not on the gas, it's
no worse than stock.  I like it.  Nice rumble.

I have picks of the install here:

Still need to capture a sound bite.  Maybe this weekend.
