+61HP,+55TQ w/Roto-Fab CAI, Kooks LTH and Tune by R.P.M.

I'm extremely pleased with the gains from these additions.
1) Roto-Fab CAI
2) Kooks 6511-complete (1 7/8" LTH, catted x-pipe, mufflers)
3) Tune by R.P.M. Motorsports (Garner, NC)



My baseline dyno was done at ~1000 miles, the recent results ~2200 miles. The throttle response is tremendous, especially at low RPM. The sound is aural bliss! I was concerned it would be raspy, screaming, obnoxious but it's not. The best word to describe it is "aggressive". At idle and below 2000 RPM it's actually pretty quiet. When you hit it, it sounds just like a muscle car should

BIG thanks to Keith and Ryan at R.P.M. for their advice, great prices and quality work!

Here are the before and after clips for comparison. The first "rev" in each clip is to 3,000 RPM, the second rev is to 6,000.

I saw very similar gains with my intake, exhaust and tune. Very nice!

Ryan and crew do some sick work. Another great example.

If you feel froggy lets those crazy SOB's go inside your motor and then it's HOLY HELL results.....

Havn't seen a RPM dyno sheet in FAR TOO LONG! Great group Ryan has, Billyman and Martin are class acts and walk the walk. STAY WITH EM. They will make your car a dream!

Hey MEDISIN....

Is there any way you can get some in cabin and drive by videos of the KOOKS system?

I'm on the fence on either the TSP exhaust or KOOKS. There really isn't much video of either system out there.

I'm thinking the KOOKS is going to be a little more aggressive sounding (which I want) over the Magnaflow mufflers used on the TSP.

Any more feedback you can provide about the KOOKS exhaust? Anything you don't like about it? Is it fairly loud at low RPM or only loud when your getting on it?

How about the throttle response? I'm sure it's 10x better than it was.

Id really like it if you could get some videos that arent directly behind the car.

From what I have learned..... the blowing sound of exhaust wind give the video a deeper sound than what you hear in real life.

Probably just needs a little adjustment on the mufflers. I don't have that system but I'm sure they are all similar in the fact that the mufflers bolt on to the end of the exhaust. So, loosen up the muffler and do some tweaking to get it to fit in there a little different.

BTW: you can find that system much cheaper than $2,500.

Yes they do! I have no doubts after seeing some of their ongoing projects in the shop that they couldn't build an engine to scare me sh!tless! I'll have to wait until my abilities behind the wheel warrant increased performance so as not to be a liability on the road

I don't have any video from different angles. The sound quality from my little point-and-shoot camera isn't the best. Especially at picking up lower frequencies. If I think about it, I'll try it again from the side.

I had some drone (windows up) between 1300-1800 RPM, most notable when in a higher gear and having to push past 40 or 50% throttle. For example, cruising on the interstate in 6th, uphill, passing another car. I would say on a scale of 1-10 (10 being unbearable to the point of ripping out the exhaust) it was a 5. Most of the resonance was coming in through the trunk. I applied the trunk kit from FatMat ($50) and that eliminated 90% of the drone.
