That's not so helpful as I don't know who or what that is.

The car is almost too quiet, but its much better than the excessive drone of my last car with a straight pipe instead of a cat, and a somewhat leaky exhaust manifold.

a proper exhaust makes a huge difference.

i tried to push an envelope once, then i had to drop the project.

shit happens, the car's fine, all's well that ends well.

also busiest this thread has been after 4:30 in... ever.

If I get on it I can hear the engine just fine, sounds rather nice, but on a highway cruise it is not overpowering like the old car was. Maybe its too quiet at a cruise, but I kind of like it that way. Most of the exhaust sound clips I've heard sound terrible, but that might just be the microphones.

The magnaflow catback exhaust sounds really ricey/ raspy on the 2.0 L GDI engine. You'd think they would know better, but I guess they think people like that crap.

12:1 compression is nice.
