Along with the increase in power the car also growls..almost sounds like a V8.

Thanks Mike.

After a day now of driving around, the tone has gotten a lot deeper. The overall sound is also a lot quieter. There isn't nearly as much drone. In fact, maintaining a constant speed almost sounds stock. Put your foot into it though and it roars.

The gains on this are pretty incredible. There's so much more go. My dad drove it home this morning and just laughed and remarked on the gains as well.

Dollar for fun factor, this is two thumbs way up.
