It actually doesn't sound that loud though I kinda think it just sounds like the borla still. It must just be me though I haven't driven my car in a while. So is it that much louder, maybe it just sounds the same but louder and you can't tell from the video.
I did both the Borla and headers at once, so I'm not real sure.
The sound clip is quite good, except in person, there is more bass. It is noticeably louder in person (thanks dinky computer speakers!) I'm not sure how it is with just the Borla, but when stock, you rarely "hear" the engine unless your accelerating. With this new set-up up, you hear it %100 of the time. I'm not sure if it's that way with the Borla or not.
Definitely NOT. I had the Borla for almost a year before the headers. The only time the Borla spoke up is when you gave it the gas (i.e. when it's supposed to). Cruising was just as quiet as stock, idling gave more presence (lower rumble).
Now, I hear the engine almost all the time- Cruising, it's barely noticeable, but when you jump on it, it howls. Engine's rev happy as hell, now, too, 'cause of the scavenging effect and increased breathability.
Hey, I have the yodude exhaust and kkm intake. I'm about to put my MSDS headers on, NOw i know there's a huge restriction on the stock headers, because i didn't have the exhaust on yet and had a straight through and out the catalytic converter sound coming out which wasn't very loud at all, on my RX-7 you could hear it miles away,and my Cougar wasn't loud enough to hear down the street so i know it's gonna do alot.
My question is what will the MSDS do to my exhaust sound? Louder or deeper tone? I'm hoping just a little deeper and a little louder. Does it get rid of that ricer noise you get at about 3000rpm where it sounds like the air is catching in the muffler? You know then it goes away at about 3500rpms.
