I am not sure about the whistle you mention I have tried to listen for it. I was thinking it was just the CAI but maybe I am wrong.Renny,
It sounds awesome, thanks for posting up such nice video! This is exactly the sound I'm looking for too. When you pulled up next to the camera, I hear that you have the same whistle that I do. I've done some research and I think it's the fuel pump or something but drives me crazy either way. I'm glad it's probably driving someone else crazy too (misery loves company).
1.I noticed this also and I researched around to find out possible causes. There possibly could be a leak in the welds which I checked and listened too over and over so I am sure this is not the case.I read after a new install the sound possibly goes away in a few days. I also read that having no resonator in some systems helps produces this in some cases. Ill have to wait and see I am hoping it just goes away.I have two questions:
1. Starting around :23 into the video when the engine comes down from a rev. What causes that fluttering sound and can that be eliminated? It would be nice if the sound decayed smoothly.
2. Tell me more about the horn mod at 1:56 in the video.
The mufflers were $89 each which I purchased from Wicked Nicky's Exhaust and then $100 for installation, piping and taking out resonator.renny how much did all that cost u? I want the same exact shit
That's too bad. It would be a sweet horn on our cars. I used to have air horns on my previous car, but the compressor went out after a few years. Luckily I had both the regular horns and air horns hooked up, so it just fell back to the regular horn.2. As for the horn it was just some random truck that was driving by on the main road lol. I edited alot out in the videos, and I liked that too so I left it in there.
Nice, So u just took those out and replaced with straight pipe? I bet just doing that you can feel it open up more too...This what I did two days ago, I think it sounds good both in the cabin and outside.. Not to loud but loud enough to get some attention..
I would recommend a regular glass-pack, they would do the job and be a lot cheaper.Nice, So u just took those out and replaced with straight pipe? I bet just doing that you can feel it open up more too...
I took a couple more videos today ill be editing into one to put up soon in this thread....
Also for the setup I have I love the sound from the outside but.......the cabin noise is overbearing though and just too loud for my tastes. I feel have to drive like a grandma to not wake the neighborhood lol. I am going to get an aftermarket resonator to put in place of where the stock was. I am debating on which one still. These are the ones I am considering either a Vibrant 18" bullet resonator or a Hushpower II resonator. After hearing clips and reading around the net I am leaning towards the hushpower. What do you guys think any experience with resonators anyone?
I would just use a glass pack but I have read and been told they just don't last and that the fiberglass ends up getting blown out and they need to be replaced every 1-2 years. Therefore I was looking to spend a little more on something that will last longer.. thanks for the suggestion oz.I would recommend a regular glass-pack, they would do the job and be a lot cheaper.
I took an exact measurement of the stock muffler earlier today and its exactly 22" end to end for just the muffler itself. I am pretty sure the 24" one could be made to fit.It's a 7 inch difference and I was wondering whether the 24" would fit...can anyone find out the stock muffler length? (I would get my measuring tape out but my car is at the dealership for some warranty work...) It'd be much appreciated!
You would definitely need to chop off the old haggards and weld the new ones on..... anything for our exhaust is going to be custom.If I'm just doing the 2 mufflers, is it all bolt-on or do I need to weld something lol
The shop I took my car too said nothing over 2 1/4. But if you can find a shop that will make custom headers for you then I would do 2 1/2. I like the little more rumble I get from the removal of the resonators, and most importantly my wife doesn't mind it either. The power will come from the least amount of bends and least amount of resistant material in it's way.Ya I found that trailer hitch video a while back when SPD Performance started talking about making an exhaust system for our car.
How annoying is having no resonator? I know someone who took his off of his speed3 and it really isnt annoying or any louder just more of a rumble to it.
I want to do a custom exhaust like they did with the 2.5" piping all the way through with no resonators but I want 2 Borla mufflers instead any input what size piping will be better the stock or increasing it to 2.5" and would they also be able to make a custom downpipe since thats where the power really comes from and the rest is more noise related?
