OK we all know how wonderful they are. But did you know they sound better as they age? At first kind of quiet, a little bit euro. Now they are speaking up with a lower, mellow rumble at cruise. Just enough to tell. I think that it's even more perfect now.

I guess the carbon build up changes the note, or some clamps are loose and the whole damn thing is fixin' to hit the pavement.

Interesting. Just how old is the "age"?

I noticed with age they got louder, too - and by age, I think I put about 5K on them before I really noticed it. Very nice. Very unique... almost like a gurgle. Sure beat stock!!

I operate the lowly automatic. In D not OD if you let off at 45 or more it gurgles with muscle car authority. I don't play the radio much.

Just put my Corsas on 2 weeks ago. I love the sound but if it takes 5k to sound even better that may take me 10 years. I also don't turn the radio on much now, love the sweet sounds of the Corsa! Guy

If you get sick of that LT-4 can I have it?

What do you think of the way the way it pulls now? Around 2500 to 4000 rpms the second tip comes into the mix and sounds beautiful. Yes the other tip works. Put your hand over it.

My wifey had to drive it a few days ago , so I listened from the outside. She blipped the pedal as instructed in 1st and let it back down. I gots me a race car.

I'll never get tired of this thing. I put on an SLP Claw and Corsa at the same time. This thing pulls like a mutha!!Guy

The SLP Claw is fantastic. I dumped the carefully cut airbox lid and $70 K&N Bro for it. Wow it sounds like a Lear Jet up front and a screamin mutha out the back. The breathing portion of the program is handled.


Stay out of the red-line unless absolutely necessary- which is way too often!
