just deleted my lunchbox, im disappointed

lol, no sound change at all, well a little, very very little. Its not noticeable unless you know what your looking for in my brothers zx3, the lunch box delete gave it very noticeable sound, almost like a whole exhaust system.

but for $30 i cant complain. ORP should be on its way soon, maybe thatll change the tone a bit

i think the svt with a orp and a lunchbox delete sound like garbage go with a flex back system if you are planing on going with a orp

you should have left it alone until you herd the stock with the orp. IMO it sounds very good with the stock system. but for a $30 I guess I cant complain lol

looks familiar, and...

I had a muffler bender stitch me up a straight pipe (cat back, no resonator, no muffler) on an old EA81 Turbo Subaru RX (Google THAT- 1500 made worldwide in '85 for pro rally homologation, another low-production, special package car, like this SVT).

THAT sounded ballsy! Turbos make great mufflers.

At this point, I'm not messing with the stock exhaust. "If it ain't broke", all that.

And...

I WANT A CRIB WITH A LIFT!!!

I have a stock '02; no cat, off road pipe, and no lunchbox....
Wish I had a lunchbox to put on it. It's way too LOUD ! ! !
At 1700RPM, and again around 2700, it gets so LOUD I can't stand it.
At 65-70MPH the radio can't drowned out the noise. I cruise at 60 so I can tolerate it !!!

If you want noise, taking the cat off without the lunchbox is going to give you plenty,
maybe (like me) more than you want.

Hey, zx3ss, if your old lunchbox needs a home, I can offer it a nice place in Florida...... :)
