:confused: Your going to be hard pressed to get that V8 sound with half of the cylinders that make that sound missing........

If you want throty go big in the exhaust tubing, help's get that hollow, bigger displacement sound. V8 sound with a I4 is a pretty tall order though, I don;t think its possible.

I figure why make it sound like a V8? It's a 4 poper and will make those big V8's feel that much worse whrn you dust them off ;)

Do a Y pipe staight out of the Cat with about 3-3.5 inch pipes. Then sat up each pipe with its own cherry bomb and flowmaster muffler, with no tip. Thats the only plan I can think up. You can also take out the cat, but thats not to legal. Also, This set up should be loud as hell. I dont know if Id try it though. The best way to get that V8 sound is with a v8.

or drive your car hard for like 7000 miles straight , dont change oil then when compression gets bad it will have that v8 sound on idle :p

sike nah j/k but really its harder to replicate that sound unless u get a intake , throttlebody spacer, upgrade charger pulley, and port polish head.

U technically want no sound comng from exhaust or it loses that V8 status ;)
My brothers friends brother :D has a 04 cobra, he took it to johnny lightning in philly (mustang expert) got it to 500 whp and he did these things to his car and got that baby sounding like a freaking chaotic V8 whining like a crying robot (s/c'ger) sounds hot :cool:

use 3 inch after the cat into a 24 inch lonh 3 inch in/out muffler. From there 3 inch over the axel the y it off and do a dual 3 inch into 2 more resonator style mufflers into whatever damn tips you like. Mine got deep. Sounds pretty mean at the 2500 mark and its pissed at the 5500+ arena

i'm going to have to look into something like that, minus the dual outlets (extra weight is useless to me). have you posted a sound clip at all???

I'm going to try and get a Custom made exhaust here sometime in the next 3-6 months. My idea right now is a Cat-Back Mandarel Bent 3 Inch Tubing through a 14 inch Magnaflow and a Tip the size and shape of the stock one.

The sound of a Muscle car is great. If I get a Redline, that would be the first thing I would change.

I have an older Corvette with dual pipes and headers now, I bet you would like that sound! I still just start it to listen to it. Too bad it's not as fast as it sounds!

Yeah me and Barry are close too close if you ask me. of all the odds there are 5 redlines in 2 miles of eachother. The setup is all solid there are no clamps so a group sale would be impossible. As well come down here make an appointment with Rod's Exhaust and your done.
