Too loud, too loud, Way too Loud

SS Headers + SS Race Cats + Eisenmann Exhausts is the perfect formula to make too much noise! I susepct it would also force any wife to make her man sleep on the couch!!!

I honestly think the noise level is, at the very least ... "double" that of the typical noise made with "just" the Eisenmann Race Exhaust installed!

The power and performance is fantastic! I just can't help but feel disappointed about the EXCESSIVE noise---don't start me on the cabin noise!

My eisenmann, on its own, did not get me kicked out of my neigborhood, but I fear this new combination will get me kicked out of Las Vegas!!!

I'll upload a video clip after I'm done upsetting all the SoCal locals over the 4th of July weekend, and when I'm back in Las Vegas!

I need to rethink my modifications-plan!

Del Mar would be 45 min to 1 hour south from Nwpt Bch (depending on traffic). You'll be with your college bud's so probably have MUCH to do.

But if you get bored, give me a holler and head this way (PM'd you my home phone #). That "THING" of yours would certainly wake up our little village. Besides, 'might let you drive my 600 hp P-car if you'll let me take that M5 around the block.

I don't know if I would describe the sound as "unpleasantly harsh?!?" (raucous) ... kind'a ... I would describe it more along the lines of "precisely-violent in-sound" and "way loud!"

You can check out my pics, but you'll have to give me a few days to hear the video!

I've also decided to start my own language:

When asked how long it's going to take me to drive from point A to point B, I now reply by saying: "about 115 dB!" When asked how fast I was traveling when the radar got me, I would reply by saying: "123 dB!"

lvegaskiwi is not kidding! He stopped by EvoSport yesterday while I was there to pick up my car from having the SuperSprint install completed on my car. I couldn't tell you which one of our cars is louder right now as we never really fired them up back to back, as the rear section alters the tone a bit.

Anyway, it was nice to meet you lvegaskiwi, sorry we couldn't chat some more and take the cars out to play a little (terrorize the neighborhood with two screaming V10's), but I had to get my Dad fed; diabetics get grouchy when they don't eat for too long.

Cheers.
