if i havent gotten a noise ticket in the honda i wont in the saab. the honda is almost over 90db at full tilt under vtec with a full exhaust...and most tracks have a 100db limit!

i stood out back of the car at idle tonight, and the the exhaust not eis like raspy/airy now dunno why, guess theres just more air in the system now.

Time for a real gauge :P

Lots of variables to consider but when mine was stock it would go right up against the next break in color(the black line). That means nothing as you can even change that with a Tech-2, so yeah a real boost gauge tells more of the story.

ViggenStory saabkid37 i got the same speakers as you but the blue box. and i installed it exactly like how u did, where you just break off the sides of the speaker holder. it fits perfectly and sounds great.

well i dont have a dp. the spool is the noise i hear thats why im unsure if theres a leak, the bpv is also quite loud now, but the backfires are out of the exhaust and not like popping out under the hood or anything like that.

Easy first gear wheelspin is something a Viggen should be use to bone stock.

You should be spinning them in 2nd gear at 40+mph in the dry now

I find there is a slight noise increase as the larger diameter pipe amplifies sound a bit. Its nothing like adding an intake to a stock car though which is NOT a power modification in comparison to the pipe which IS.

I noticed slightly quicker spool and better response overall.
