Question Attn: Drivers w/ AT and exhuast

I changed my exhaust a few months ago and when I'm at WOT and the car shifts gears, it doesn't sound like an auto anymore. Anybody else have the same experience? Just wondering if this is just my car (maybe there's something wrong) or is it just how the 4EAT reacts to an exhaust. If I can find somehow to get a recording of my car at WOT on the net, I'll post it for you guys to hear. Also, if you've got an AT w/ exhaust and have a sound clip, I'd like to hear it i comparison w/ mine. Thanks!

Do you mean when shifting, it sounds like a manual trans. lifting of the throttle?

Do you mean it sounds like a growl when you shift? Yeah mine does that all the time, sounds great...and by the way, here are various sound clips of my scoobies many sound stages....
http://members.aol.com/specopsrb6/nomufflerscoob.wav http://members.aol.com/specopsrb6/127dbscooby.wav http://members.aol.com/specopsrb6/scoobyblitz.wav http://members.aol.com/specopsrb6/borlablitz.wav http://members.aol.com/specopsrb6/noheadersscooby.wav

Those are in the following order: no muffler, 2.25" straight pipe (hit 127.4db from 20" away), Blitz NurSpec with 2.25 midpipe (same as Keiho), the borla headers plus the blitz, and finally NO HEADERS!

Hope ya like em even though they are poor quality and the real deal sounds 10x better.

Exactly the word I was looking for! As it shifts, it sounds like it's growling or something. I love it! It really turns heads which I kinda like (as long as it isn't a cop ).

You should hear it with stock midpipe and muffler off. That was the best growl it ever made. I wish I could have heard it with the borla headers...That woulda been awesome.
