      i want these people to hear the turbo sound. and listen to the sri sucking in air through the rpm range.
      the spot where you can also see the shifter working was a cool POV

      That's awesome, and as far as vids go how about a video from inside the cabin and then another outside? I get intense drone in my 2.5l inside my cabin with just an intake and catback, would like to compare.

      lol, if we are to take all mods into account, then there can be no comparison, as no 2 cars are the same, and there isnt another 2.5 with my exact mods, including the deadening...

      i have the sound deaden, different tranny, light flywheel, painted/wrapped exhaust, customized exhaust, and the list goes on...

      but lets say this anyways: take all you see here with a grain of salt.
