i'm just wondering what everyone thought is the best sounding intake out there. Some sound a lot different than others. while some can sound kinda ricey. i'm looking for one that has a deep roar to it? -Thanks guys
Best intake sound I ever had was on my 1967 Mini Cooper S with twin split webers on a super sprint cam, the inlet trumpets were no more than a few inches behind the speedo cluster........boy did that sound good, and the spit back lit the cluster like no bulb ever could at night!
But now, I am an old fart......and I think the best sounding inlet is the quiestest......sorry
Oh well back to the ward......nurse time for my bed bath
I have the cosmos CAI.... and it sounds good. Not the best sounding intake outthere, and I think your gonna get alot of personal tastes here.
My friend has this monster cone filter on his jetta..... It sounds like my old 72 442 with dual Eldlebrooks when he gooses it. To some that may sound great, but hearing a 160HP Jetta trying to sound like a 400hp snarling monster....
To do list:
UUC System U TDM- 3/05
M50 manifold converstion 3/05
off to the tuning shop for custom software 4/05
Cams/lightened flywheel, throttlebody........ well lets see what happens
yeah there are some intakes out there that just don't sound right on their cars. i was just seeing which ones ya'll think best suit the inline 6 in sound and performance. i think a lot of people like the conforti intake and the ecis intake.
My 2 cents: ECIS intake. I met this guy at the track who had the intake. He gunned it with the hood open while I stood outside by the engine bay and me and my friend jumped back once he hit 5500 rpm it was soooo loud and throaty deep. I've since bought one and couldn't be happier. Sounds like stock with normal throttle, but floor it and get it up past 4500 and it roars like an aftermarket exhaust. Friggin awesome sound. You'll get as much horsepower out of it as any other, which is to say not much. Still worth it if you want a badass sound. The extra sound also really helps rev-match double clutches and heel and toes.
