JBA Shorties and MBRP cat-back - w/Vids and pics
 
Here are some pictures of them. :-) The car sounds nice. I'll post some vids of it too.

As always use good Headphones or speakers to hear the lows.

I recorded another one from behind of revs. I don't have anyone to help me take one going down the street at the moment maybe later. It's still a bit deeper and bit throatier in real life.

Yo from what I heard that sounds great! From inside the cabin and outside. Would like to see some vids of you revving and driving by from the outside.

How much do you think the shorties are affecting the sound? You think it's mostly the MBRP cat back because I'm looking into shorties right now?

Shorties generally add quiet a bit of growl to the exhaust and may make the tone a tad deeper, but generally doesn't affect the overall tone too much. The biggest difference is the added growl which is almost always a very positive thing with shorty headers.

Excellent, man. Thanks for the info.

Thanks! I'll see if I can get another recording done of the revs and maybe a drive by. But to be honest, I care more about what it sounds like on the inside since that's where I'll be most of the time. :-) The headers make a slight change in sound from the front of the car to me. It's tough to describe but what I can hear are probably the exhaust pulses when revving/driving about 1500-2500RPM or so with the windows down and remote start. lol It also sounds kinda like a leak? but I doubt that because I would probably have a CEL light if that were the case.

Still waiting for those vids! Haha :thumbup:

I'm not too worried about how mine sounds from inside the cabin. I just want it to sound how I like it from the back, but it if it sounds good inside that can't hurt!! Ha!

I can't be sure but I would guess like you and say it's not a leak because there is no CEL.

markgws6 06-24-2012 01:41 PM

I posted the Video links above, check them out.

Well my car got a CEL now. So it's back to the shop again...
These are also not cheap to install (at least they were not for me.)

KMPrenger 06-24-2012 01:44 PM

Sounds good! I'm sure it does sound better in person, but the video gives a great idea of the sounds.

Thanks KM. Whoops I mistyped JBA in the thread title to say JDP. If any mods can fix this it would be appreciated. :-)
