      I searched and couldn't find one so I decided to start one. With this engine being able to produce so many unique sounds, I think we should have a place where some of us can post up what ours sound like. Also, this should be able to help others when they want to find out what setup they'd like to run.

      I'll go first.

      Mods to exhaust system:
      "Suitcase" (first muffler) and resonator delete. Cost:$75

      Not an actual exhaust vid but you can get the picture. Sounds better then this in person tho. My exhaust consists of a USP testpipe mated to a modified EJ catback system. PO cut out the muffler on the EJ and replaced it with a Dynomax muffler. He said it use to drone on the highway so he decided to put a different muffler in. I think it sounds pretty mean but I might eventually pick up a different exhaust.

      I haven't installed my magnaflow yet, but soon. I have installed my intake though.



      Prototype, the power steering reservoir really kills all room in there. I had to shape an S instead of a typical 45 degree or 90 degree. I'll clean it up later with some aluminum piping and heat wrap.

      I get on it around the 7 minute mark. This was pre-headers and test pipe. So it is strictly AWE Cat-back and BSH CAI.

      Just use the MK5 NEUSPEED P-FLO. The Power Steering reservoir can be ziptied off to the front bumper and won't interfere.

      I think if I had a power steering reservoir, I'd just take the time to tuck it away... It's simple to do, just gotta find the space for a clean delete.

      Great idea Dust Bunny.

      I'm looking into getting an APR Carbonio CAI and an AWE Touring Exhaust. Anybody got those that could post a vid?

      Sounds pretty nice man. From what Ive heard, I never really liked the way the Magnaflow sounded but maybe its your headers that change the tone some.

      I've always liked it just because I feel it gives the 5 cyl a slightly more VR throaty tone. but the headers absolutely changed the tone once the car gets to around 2800 rpm

      Most exhaust options for this engine make the car sound like a mid 90s Honda that was inspired by the Fast and the Furious.

      Somehow loud and obnoxious became the new black.

      Oh it don't matter. There are only a handfull of 2.5L owners that aren't broke and the majority will continue to read this hoping for a cheap upgrade or exhaust note that sounds like we're boss. If we had money we would have gotten an R.

      Welcome to the forums, please leave you purse at the door.

      Don't post something and expect everything you get in return to be positive. You subject yourself to criticism the moment you put something online, for all to see, whether good or bad. Get over it, its just the forums anyways. If you get bothered by someone stating an opinion, you should leave the tex forums and go to some other less serious forum.
