My uncles Mustang would do this from the factory, the radio was pretty much useless when the engine was running.

Good thing I have an aftermarket stereo system in mine then. Though, if I have a friend with me I can barely hear our conversation.

Also, matrix your ford focus is not as loud as what I consider obnoxious. Everyone has an opinion.

Dysturbed:
Stickers: +10hp
Vinyl: +20
CAI: +40
nawsss: +100
teh wing: +9,000

Anything real, meh you can't see it and it costs moneys so I don't want it... :dodgy:

forgot the wing that adds so much downforce when going at speeds in excess of 25mph.

Clearly none of you know what a good sound is. Especially if you were ever here:

I dunno, anti-lag systems are never melodious.

While I love the turbo flutter on the group b cars I cannot help but cringe at the damage that is doing. I just want them to throw a blow off on.

Glad I am not the only one that noticed that.

Moving_target, we were actually messing around with the timing a little bit yesterday. We adjusted it slightly after this video was shot.
No, young kids who cannot afford it, don't want to cut into a $25000 car. They are the first one to slap on performance stickers and speed inducing chrome from JC Whitney too.

Loud just to be loud isn't a performance mod. This is coming from a guy who owns a 1991 Diesel W250, that still sounds like like a garbage truck, just like when it was new.

And sorry when I hear the high pitched whine of the engine of some of these newer things, I can only feel sorry for the hamsters pushing it....they sound like RC cars on roids to me.

While they do have power, they simply don't sound like power. The throaty rumble of an old school V8 that is tuned to a low RPM state so as to not stall out is pure heaven to me. My dream is to get a 67 Cougar XR7 and restore it myself....but I think that is only a dream

As to the loud pipes on bikes...My Yamahog has some Vance and Hines on it that rumble loud. I like it not so that I can say "hey look at me I am cool" but I like them because to many drivers are idiots and don't look so I am saying "HEY LOOK YOU IDIOT....YOU MAY NOT SEE ME BUT YOU CAN HEAR ME SO LOOK AGAIN!!!!"
