However, if you have to cut any pipes, get the proper tooling. Do not try to cut those steel pipes with a hand saw. I learned the hard way over 8 hours.
If you're just looking for sound, I still say, save your money from the intake. The biggest sound difference you'll get is from the muffler.
On the matter of loudness... that is sooo subjective. I think my Supersprint on the Z3 is quiet and only loud when I want it to be (>4000RPM)... but my wife thinks it's loud even at idle. To me, it's just a deeper at idle. She's not so excited to ride in the Z3 these days... but she won't let me carry a female passenger in it. hispanic women...
Yeah I know what you mean. I had a 2006 RSX before my Z4, and I had full cat back headers and intake
, she hated it, I loved it. Hey thanks so much for the info, I think I'm gonna do it this week or weekend. So it wont sound like those trucks with magnaflow.
I really appreciate everything, well ill see when there is a next meeting, so I can go out there and meet the GURU's...
Well thanks again.
