Default V92 Swap

Any direction is appreciated.

I own a '99 V92c which had started showing the ill temper that is common for this bike, so I have purchased a '03 Freedom. I have watched Rylan Voss' tutorial on this procedure and am finalizing purchases to move forward. Before I (attempt) to contact PMRT about the chip, I am trying to answer a few questions:

What is the potential fit for S&S intakes across model years? Also, I am a fabricator by trade, so the plan is to convert my stock exhaust to a 2:1 using Megs components. With my early morning schedule and a contentious relationship with my landlord, I need my neighbors on my side, so I cannot get much louder than stock. The bulk of discussion on exhaust seems geared toward looks (which I, of course, cannot ignore) and "exhaust note"; where I need help is in real performance vs noise. Any word from those with hard exhaust experience would be most enjoyed.

I fear that I have started to over-think this and could use some opinions.

I switched from the heavy stock exhaust to RPW Slash pipes a few years ago.It was way too loud but power was good. I then found an RPW 2-1 exhaust on ebay for about a 1/3 the price of new. This pipe(the one in my avatar) gives great performance and is not near as loud as the Slash pipe I had on it. I know some guys like 'em real loud, I
just can't take that obnoxious drone for hours on end. The 2-1 I have now has a nice rumble to it that isn't over the top.

Thanks for the word, Tarzan. Would you happen to know the baffle diameter on that system? I wasn't able to find too many real specs. It looks like I will be building my own, which is the curse of wanting something that is just outside the popular choices.
