Question How do you get this awesome exhaust sound?

what do you think they are using?

go here http://www.xcceleration.com and go down to the link on the main page that says "Click Here for a GREAT SOUND!"

well, you goto pepboys, and ask for the fast and the furious or 2 fast 2 furious fart tip, and then when they hand you the 6" make sure to tell them you didnt ask for the small...

meh more like a civic Si w/ a fartcan....

see the fartcan just produces the sound w/o actually doing anything....civics can sound like harleys if they want to w/ a fartcan.....so can a wrx.....doesnt mean you should do it.

and oh god im amazed the engine isnt choking w/ those sized exhausts, if they went smaller, theyd probably get a hp gain that didnt come from chipping the car....it looks like they're trying to apply pv=nrt to an exhaust system....

"Deep, Extremely Loud Sound

3" piping, 5" Tip

This is the Bad Boy!!" ....5" tip....5"!!!......fart can.

Hey carkmouch, don't appologize to some prick because he can't deal with the fact that you like something.

i did a simple canister exhaust (4" outer diameter?), with a removeable (2 & 7/16" ?) silencer. I had an extra section welded in so the tip protrudes 1ľ" past the bumper. The extra section was about 10-13", and had two 15 to 20-degree crush-bends. Sounds like the engine was cammed to some people (experienced engine builder once said this to me), other people think it sounds like a lightly-boosted Harley Davidson. Full boost just sounds like semi-mid-range "whoooooosh" gushing air, no resonance at all. I've left all cats and resonators in. It was especially awesome with the silencer until someone ****ing stole it. Now I somewhat regret the open canister, but plan to replace the silencer by purchasing another unit ($110+tax) and parting out the canister, taking a loss probably. Anyone know where to get another silencer??!?...

God... if I could only get my two hands on the fool who did that....

The engine has probably 10 to 15 more ft-lbs of torque around 5500 rpm than it had before i did the exhaust and reset the ECU. Low-end is obviously suffering from stock, but I've trained myself to consistently launch it and use double-clutch rev-match downshifts without spilling an open cup of water in the cup holder, while driving my favorite curvy roads. This turned out to help me drive consistently fast in the rain, and improve my slalom times in the autocrosses. I could do this all before, but revs between gears are much quicker, and I don't even look at the tach anymore unless I'm getting near redline, since I can hear the pitch (at anything less than 1/2 boost) to within 150 rpms. Power band tops out around 6000-6200 depending on weather, but the car will pull to 7300 if I need/want it to. I'd rather be at 3900 rpm all the time, though. Full boost, and feel-it-in-your-nards torque :-). Redline in this motor is pointless... which I had the RA final-drive :-( Shorter (higher numerical) final drive would be the finishing touch on my "sleeper", if I still had the silencer.

On the annoyance factor, people don't hear me coming at all. They hear me leaving, but it's a mellow, nearly-muffled boxer sound that's very pleasing, until you get over 5400 rpms in light boost or vacuum. Above that RPM under light loads, that it gets a little "ricey" for my personal taste, but I still get tons of compliments at the tracks. Other than people who have the taste enough to watch for a silver WRX go by, I don't get stares or gawks from people on the sidewalks, even after I've passed them (I watch to see their reactions). The cops don't care about the exhaust, as it's not a melon-launcher, and sounds basically stock at idle, just about 3-4 db more rumbly. It doesn't backfire or make odd noises, leave that to the 3" and 4" turbo-backs. It stays clean, shaved a lot of weight from the rear-most part of the car (10 lbs? maybe..) and just overall seems to help the car get moving.

Best $120 (muffler) + $30 (install) = $150 I ever spent on any car. I would estimate flywheel power (butt dyno method) at 230-232 hp and 225-227 ft-lbs, with the powerband's initial slope shifted about 250-300 rpm from stock. This is after 10,000 miles of mixed driving/racing. If you like the low-end pull, this is NOT for you. If you like compliments, then this is for you :wink:

Sorry if you guys think this is ricey, but I like the car as-is. I just wanted the deep sound and a little top-end back-road umph. I like my street rally car just as it sits

As for the blow-off valves that people are doing on otherwise stock cars... I have one word. WEAK. Keeping your boost from bottoming out during shifting was what the stock system seems to be designed for. Why blow-off that ALL boost between shifts, unless you're shifting AT the redline EVERY time you shift (this would save your motor, I guess, in that instance)? I don't get it....

deep rumble - "scooba dubba rubba scooba rub duba scooooooba"

anemic smurf - "psssssssst"

My suggestion... get the rumble. Get the backfires. Get the anti-lag map dyno-tuned for your particular mods. Anything! But for god's sake, leave the stock valve alone.

Definately sounds like a Borla. I like my straight pipe axle back though. Just a little more rumble...

Go to World One Performance and watch their video with the TurboXS RFL-Ti (take a wild guess what the RFL stands for)

If you want to make noise, and be noticed, this is the exhaust system for you.

Quick note. Although a new muffler (axleback) system will enhance the exhaust sound, running a full custom turboback replacing all stock pipes including the downpipe will certainly increase the volume level further.

Thanks for the ScoobySport votes lads... When it comes to great sound, folks always chime in with the ScoobySport name, but mainly because of the deepness of the tone - and all the pitches and burbles.

We do have a LOUDER muffler out now, we're calling the standard muffler the ScoobySport classic - and the louder version the "Rallye". See the website for details at www.rallyperformance.com under the engine section. It is a no-compromise competition system.

Regards,
Ken
