After 3 1/2 years, 3 years with the cam in it, I still find myself listening to the exhaust untill it warms up. When it is cold it idles higher and just sounds meaner than when it's at operating temp.

Both if on a longer drive. If just a short jaunt around town to raise some hell and make some noise, radio off. I love the sound of the exhaust.

I have my radio off more than I have it on. I just like to listen to the motor as I'm driving!

What is this thing you call A Radio? If I have one I don't know how to turn it on, the exhaust is all the music I need.

Radio at about 30 and windows down unless two things: It's raining, or my wife is in the car.

I have the radio on most of the time but the volume is always low. I do this in all my vehicles. I prefer to hear the exhaust and listen for any new noises from the car (squeaks, rattles, tire noise, knocks, etc.). I don't understand how people could listen to loud music constantly when driving. They are oblivious to things around them and stuff happening to their car.

I put the back seat down so I can hear the exhaust better.
