Re: wat does a vr6 with no resonators sound like??

it's only loud when you are on it, when you're just driving normally, there is a nice humming sounds to it. Although with the factory muffler, it sounds a little Hondaish to me. But it doesn't drown out the sweet vr6 sound at all(talkin bout the intake sound)

No cat? how do you pass inspections? what kind of tone does that give you? low and rumbly move like a v8 or like a 4 cylinder sound?

Re: Hi (vagvr6)

I was living in PA at the time, and all you really needed to pass inspeciton was tires and the ability to get to the inspection station. No emissions where I was obviously.
The car was mean sounding, not as "burbly" as most VR6's. Sounded like a BIG sport bike at WOT.

Re: Hi (JimGTIVR6)

I'm having a hard time trying to decide which system I want. TT, Autotech, or Eurosport. They all give just about the same amount of power, but I wanna get the best sounding one. I heard Chuck's Eurosport exhaust, sounds really nice. Just need to hear the other two exhausts. Kinda wanna go with Autotech cuz their exhaust only weighs like 25 lbs. but I dunno about their exhaust tip and it's kinda pricey. And TT exhaust is sweet, not a bad price, but dual dtm tips cost 130 more!! And eurosport is like 400 with the ceramic coating dual dtm.... Which would you guys pick out of those 3? and what exactly does the fip that comes with the TT SS Boral 2.5" exhaust look like?

Re: Hi (JimGTIVR6)

Jim, no offense, but my car was louder, and by a long shot! The 2.25 piping and that muffler are holding you back. Mine was 2.5" from the dp back, and the supersprint rear muffler didn't do half the muffling yours does. Hopefully you'll be able to compare in a few weeks

Re: Hi (Metallitubby)

How do you think this will sound, my new zorst.
No cat, one (tiny) silencer instead, then 2.25" straight through, exiting out the side in 2 flat oval tailpipes (no back box
). I might squeeze another silencer in there if it's a bit too loud (if there is such a thing?).
I'm gonna fit a harsh cut rev limiter too so it spits flames.
PAAAARRRP! CRACK!! PAAAAARRRP CRACK!
I just hope I don't torch a rear tyre!
