I guess it’s fine just by itself.
This was a thing that was hyped a while back, but their webpage for it hasn’t been updated in a while. I can’t find any documentation of the sound on YouTube either. Was anyone else excited about fancier exhaust-sound tuning?
Look at my glorious tips OPPO
You may remember my post a few weeks back about my rusty exhaust shearing in TWAIN on the highway. That was fun. Well, since that was the last OE exhaust for the Supercharged MR2's back when I bought it, and no aftermarket options exist for anything resembling a reasonable price, I had to go the DIY route.
I overlooked that the S2000 I bought already had a cheap intake on it... so may as well stick on another bolt on!
As with any exhaust video, a parked revving car doesn’t the way it does under load. You can hear the general characteristics though which are rumbly on idle, silent through 2500rpm, then a nice exotic wail 2500-3500rpm. I absolutely love this setup because at any cruising speed its in the silent sub 2500 zone and…
Just deleted the mid muffler on the TL and it sounds fantastic, but is very very mild still. The tone is exponentially better, and under full throttle it sings. Around the city I can barely tell the difference, and I haven’t experienced any drone yet.
A buddy of mine suggested I straight pipe the Crown Vic instead of wasting money on better mufflers and high-flow cats and such. After a little research, I read a few things saying that straight pipes can actually cause you to loose power because it releases all of the back-pressure. Is there any actual truth to the…
Good news: Best. Birthday present. Ever. Getting them on, along with 3 inch aluminized pipes (with X-pipe- would prefer not to have one, but Dad wants to, and it’s supposed to help flow) dumping in front of the rear tires. It will absolutely shriek.
Still trying to find the time to pick up my Shure DSLR microphone from my friend, so in the meantime, and iPhone video of my Invidia R400.
With some extra hands courtesy of some friends, I was able to install my Invidia R400 very easily on Friday.
A friend of mine has a ‘95 NA Miata. It simply needs the exhaust system re-attached and it’ll be roadworthy again. We’re calling on Oppo for some advice on how to go about it.
Those headers and that exhaust on a R129 V12 would basically create the perfect car. Every M120 should sound like that.
3 weeks of running no mufflers on my cammed LS2 has been fun, but I am going for a smog and needed them back on. Plus I was getting a little tired of the noise. Now they are on and it seems so quiet... I am disappointed.
Haven’t posted in ages, especially about my 500, but today I finally rid myself of the stock intake setup, and changed my plugs, since apparently the recommended service interval is 60k miles or so, and I was at 81k. One of the techs at work was kind enough to lend me his bay and his tools after we were done for the…
The Holy Grail of automotive tuning solutions is custom fabrication. This mode of tuning is generally hard to reach for ordinary car owners, but there are a handful of notable exceptions. At the top of that list is a custom-fabricated exhaust system.
Some cars have such excellent off-the-shelf exhaust kits available…
