As far as I know,
The cold air intake brings a larger volume of cooler (more oxygen) airflow into the engine,
the cat-back helps to free the hot exhausts from the engine by being less restrictive.
The cooler the air you can get into the engine, and the more hot exhaust you can get
out (with out loosing to much back pressure = more HP hopefully. As for the dirt bike sound it usually depends on the quality
Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken.

You could see if they have a silencer for that style of exaust .... its a metal piece that fits in the exaust tip. IMO it makes is sound extremely bad, but is quieter. Unfortunatly the problem you have run into is that pretty much with any aftermarket exaust you are going to change the tone of the exaust. You might be able to get a different style that may sound "different" .... but I think you are going to be hard pressed to get something that wil be much quieter :(

Good Luck

a cat back and intake will give you some noise and good looks, if your looking for more power there is nothing too helpful for the soul yet, you wont notice much difference if any in power with these two modifications, now if you removed the cats and do a full exhaust with id say 2'' piping with the intake you may feel a little difference, im taking my cats out more than likely, doing that should give it a little more pep in the mid range, which i have noticed is a little week, off the line i can keep up with my buddys 2008 SI, but after 30 or so mph i loose a lot of power but get it back around 50mph
