Two FSWERKS Race Exhaust and Steeda CAI clips

For anyone wondering what the set-up sounds like (there aren't too many clips of the Race out there), well, now you know. Both were done on a windy day, so forgive any wind noise. Also the fly-by was only partial throttle. People on here have said that this combo sounds like an old WRX boxer, and I'm inclined to agree. Doing these also required that I really turn down the camera's sound sensitivity; it's pretty loud.

Watch both in HD for best audio.

I haven't done any in-car ones, and it's pretty loud in there when you step on it, but it sounds good to my ears. I didn't do any stock comparison; you guys all know how the Mk.III sounds stock.

Suss6052's right. ;D

SkyPilot, It's not too bad. If you keep it to around 65mph, on a highway without a grade, you're spared the worst of it. Accelerating from 65mph to 75mph from 5th gear and you'll get a good dose of drone. I don't like to pass or speed up with 5th gear at all, just cruise, so it doesn't bother me too often. With this, it's keep your right foot light, or set the cruise to 65 and forget it. 3200-3300rpm seem to be where it's at the absolute worst.
