I just got my Arqray side exit exhaust and it's waaay too quiet for my taste. To me it sounds like the stock exhaust. :shrug:

I'm feeling a bit sick about it all.

Please tell me they get louder with age. At idle it barely sounds like anything.

I have to take it to 8 grand to get anything out of it, and still it sounds quiet to me, and frankly I'd like to hear something at a much lower RPM.

:sad:

Yep, single tip, side exit. Brand new.

I think I'm gonna need a decat.

And yep, I'll give it some time.

I also don't like the way it sounds at idle. Kind of raspy. But maybe I was just in a bad mood.

Nope, don't need a hearing aid

And yep Serebo it's hooked up to the car. lol, I'm just hardcore like that I guess. :shift:

Too quiet? Ask your neighbors at 4 in the morning when you're stealthily bringing home hotties from the club.

They'll tell you it is perfect.

Um, if I were stealthily bringing hotties home from the club my husband might get mad.

My neighbors are used to our loud cars. I drive them gingerly in the neighborhood.


Just to make sure I'm not going deaf I had someone else drive it, and they too felt it was a bit less than they expected.

I wanted to go Von Hep but there's an 8 week wait time and I'm not an eight week wait time kind of person. I do have a Von Hep rear panel eliminator.

I dunno, our elise have the Quicksilver and I love the way it sounds.

I'm thinking I need a decat. Plus, the Arqray burbles a lot, so if I get a decat, I look forward to shooting flames at night.
