Re: Ever get tired of how loud your car is?

I have heard the same... but I've never had an apples to apples comparison as I changed a whole bunch of things at once. I mean I'm not a physicist or anything but if you look at a log manifold or some stock cast piece, all the exhaust pulses come nearly right off the head, crash into each other, and then get forced downstream. Whereas the LTs have each pulse coming down stream at nearly equal length, blend together in the merge, and exit out. Maybe because there's so much less turbulence it equates to less of a racket? Bueller?

All I know is I pulled my Stingers and put full bodied magnaflows in their place 2 weeks ago, and my goodness I love it...

Maybe it just smooths out the tone to give the impression of "quieter"? I would agree don't expect ORX and Loudmouth all of a sudden to turn into a church mouse with LTs.

Don't have LTs on my Mach (yet) but this was the same experience I had with two 3Vs and a Coyote.

Its a little counterintuitive at first thought, but they do. Turbulence, itself, must create sound and smoothing it out with LT's must reduce it.
