Anyway I'll let you know how it stacks up to it. At the very least it has to sound better than it does now!
Your wife didn't think it was too loud? So it's wife approved?

Except for that horrible under-load drone at 3,100 RPM. That's the only reason I had to go back to stock. If I lived on flat land like back home in Texas I would have kept it that way.

I'm going to see what the airbox lid removed is like. Hopefully it gives me the same sound. That way I can take the lid off when I'm driving the car.

I didn't realize how tame these cars sound until I took the resonator off. It went from kitten to tiger

Now it's a kitten again. Hopefully the Magnaflow muffler swap will put some growl back into it again. Getting that done Friday.

EDIT: I just realized something. I really am just a big kid.

Have you removed the lid to compare the sound(s) yet?

Not yet. Just got in from work. 12 hours today. I'm an appliance and furniture delivery man. I'm freaking wore out, lol

Hopefully I'll play with that tomorrow. I'm also getting my dual out 18'' Magnaflow installed tomorrow morning. I'll let you all know what I think.

Your a kid eating a chalupa in a taco stand next to the autozone with the lego store inside it.

Hello Team Foci!

Got the exhaust put on. I'm not sure what it sounds like outside of the car yet. I need to have someone drive the car for me so I can hear it. It does have a little drone at idle through 1,500 RPM and around 3,100 RPM under load, which surprised me. I didn't think I would get any drone with doing just a muffler swap, especially using an 18'' Magnaflow.

I opened my driver side door and revved the engine and I really liked what I heard. It does sound a lot deeper.

I've yet to see what the wife thinks. She better like it because I don't want to go back to stock!
