V8 Motor swap maybe, on and S/C too.

Regarding making the car sound a bit more mean, search the archives for exhaust , theres quite a variety and there are a variety of sound clips you should be able to scrounge up.

Thanks,
Adam

THe Borla exhaust system and AFE intake come to mind. Borla exhaust is very expensive, but it seems worth it to me. I personally like the deep burble of the borla over the high rev screem of other exhausts out there.

Do you mind posting some sound clips for us?


Perhaps some idling, with the video camera close to the exhaust tips, then you drive away from the camera? And a flyby if you're feeling frisky? ;)

I'd really appreciate it... I personally want an exhaust that has a very slight, but deep rumble at idle, and goes quiet above 4000rpm, so I can hear the engine/intake when I rev it out.

I know the car will never make the sound of SL55 but just thought it would give you guys an idea.

I dont want the exhaust to be anywhere loud like most Jap cars when modified. Something that just multiply's the stock sound of the car by 2. :bow:

I was thinking of getting the Dinan intake and exhaust..how's that sound?
Dont get Dinan...Dinan Exhaust is quiet, and is over priced...The Intake is good tho, but I rather get another brand, like Gruppe M, or BMP intake...

For Exhaust, if you want loud get a TSE3 exhaust from UUC Motorwerke...:thumbup:

It's not so much the number of cylinders that defines how the engine will sound.

It's the firing order of the cylinders.

TSE3.TSe3.......u want rumble then get a ucc tse3 exgaust...i have it on my 323cab. w/cams,dinan cai,dinan stg2,ucc pulley...and it roars!!!!!!!...and its all the exhaust as i put exhaust on day sfter other stuff, and it was quiet still. It also gave me very noticeable gain...its quicker in the city, a little sanppier, than the slug it was b4...i dont rercommend if u live in a very quiet neiborhood, and drive late night!!!!!! i let the gas off by city cops.it can be loud if you stomp on it, and very quiet on hwy ...pretty cool.

The Dinan is quiet for most people, but I think it would suit him quiet well. it multiplies the sound of a 330 2, maybe 3 fold. I took out both resonators and that sum ***** was loud. I suggest the Dinan if you just want a deep rumble, but not too loud.
