It's weird, but if I have the hood open and rev it it sounds quite throaty and nice. But when the hood is closed and I'm driving it sounds just like a riced out Honda Civic in the cabin. And that's at both light throttle (2000rpm or so) and WOT. There is definitely more power so I'm going to give it a little more time to get used to it. I've done nothing with my exhaust btw.

This. I really don't notice much noise when I'm just cruising. When I floor it then it sounds mean. But like you said, not ricer, just mean.

I'm hoping to get my exhaust components ordered up this week so we can start that project soon. Then we'll see which is louder ;) LOL

Gah. I'm jealous. Been meaning to get an exhaust for a while. I haven't done anything to the car in a month or so...gotta get on that.

What's the setup?

Custom, one off... Not telling all the details. It'll have a Magnaflow 12616 and prob a Vibrant 1792. We may use a Camaro tip. Beyond that, you'll just have to wait ;)

Hello Everyone,

Unfortunately I have no new news to report, it has been handed over to the engineers. As soon as I know something I will post here first thing, as I stated before this can take a while. I thank all of you for your continued patience, and as always if you have an issue please call so we can help.


Troy.
