I agree unless it's an SRT-4 neon as those sound like poop. One of the best sounding car in my opinion is a turbo Supra. The 2JZ online 6 sounds amazing.

The install was super easy, but it's best to have an extra set of hands for sure. From start to finish took a little under an hour (and this is for people who don't work on cars much).

It doesn't produce any "fartcan" sound whatsoever, and it definitely produces a deeper & louder growl than what I expected. Which is both good & bad, IMO. It is a nice sound for sure, but I can maybe see it as a little annoying sometimes as it can be heard even when the stereo is at medium volume. Of course it doesn't make a V8 sound, nor did I expect it to.

But be certain you want a pretty constant exhaust growl at low and high RPM's as I found at midrange RPM's it quiets down a bit. If that's what you want to hear, I can attest to the Corksport (and it does LOOK great from the back). And it sounds like you can't go wrong w/ the Racing Beat either. I would first hear it w/o a resonator delete as it might be loud enough for you w/o it.
Great feedback. I noticed with my old cars + aftermarket exhaust that sometimes I hear a "ricey grumbling" at certain RPM. Based on your experience with the Corksport, do you hear any of that? Is it consistently a nice growl or are there a hint of fart canning now and then? That's one thing I am afraid of.

A "cheap" trick aside from pulling your entire muffler off is to create an exhaust leak. Take some flat washers and put them between the flanges of the pipe/muffler on the mounting bolts. 2-3 per side usually makes a noticeable difference and costs ~$2 at a hardware store. (Of course this is an exhaust leak and if you're stuck in traffic you'll fill your cabin with exhaust fumes)

Here's my custom Magnaflows w/ resonator delete all said and done for $400. There is a high RPM rasp when there's no load.... but that's because of the resonator delete >:[

And how does being a turbo effect the sound of the exhaust?

Fart can. Not the worst fart can, but its there.

Turbos work by using exhaust gas to spin a turbine. Hence part of the exhaust has to go through the turbine giving it a different sound. This is why turbo and non turbo versions of the same vehicle sound different with exhausts. Not to mention if you have an external waste gate it's going to be significantly louder.

Sounds pretty good but alittle too loud for my taste. When I had my 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution I loved this sound, although the Mitsu sounded better. Now that I'm in my 30's I've lost the lust for noisy cars. I appreciate subtle tones in exhaust but nothing raspy. Either way these cars don't sound like "fart cans". To me a 1.6 l civic with non vtech or turbo sounds like a fart can.

I understand how turbos work. What i dont understand is you still have exhaust going through the exhaust system, weather it spins a turbo on its way out or not shouldn't have an effect on its exit sound, which is dictated by the muffler, cat, resonator, etc...

with that said, i have never stood and compared a turbo vs non turbo exhaust sound of the same car. I would speculate that they probably have different oem exhaust systems and that is what is causing the sound difference, not the fact that the air is used to spin a turbine on its way out the back door.

well, in fact they do have different exhaust systems, up front anyway.

I'm sorry but I can't reason with someone who claims opinion as fact because there is no reasoning with you.

Yeah, ok. I gave my opinion. Most would agree. You labeled it as a fact.

Theres nothing to reason here, just discussing why a turbo version sounds different than a non turbo version of same exact car. Your statement that the air flow being used to spin something is changing the exhaust note is probably not a fact. I think thats reason enough for everybody!
