So Bob/GiRaff3 has had a trying day. His exhaust work didn't quite happen as planned. He pulled into my driveway just a few hours ago with...well take a listen here...<p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr7L0fTAdjM" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr7L0fTAdjM</A><p>Enjoy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

That was a fun little ride along <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> ... More people should do that when they mod there car... I plan on doing that when I finish mine and a little special when I install the IPD hybrid intake using both intakes... If the design works as well as I have thought it out in my head it is going to be sick! Good luck with getting that exhaust on there... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I like the last line: "Thanks for the ride Bob", "roger that". But the way Bob says it you can tell he has had absolutely enough of the sound.<p>I love the sound a 5 cylinder turbo makes wide open, pure music!

I laugh like an idiot at any loud noise, so it shouldn't be too hard to replicate that condition this weekend. The dialog was pretty snarky, that's pretty usual with Bob around, he's snarkilicious.

Oh boy oh boy...<p>.....<p>Thanks everyone for the comments - that was completely just random. I was expecting to do a little exhaust video, and bob was like "jump in, we're going for a ride". He had a lot of junk in the car that I was stepping on, but I don't feel sorry just because. The laughter was in complete response to being thrust into a situation which was completely unexpected 30 seconds beforehand. And the fact that Bob is a lunatic makes things even better.<p>We were looking at the back of his car today...awesome factory body kit with an exhaust cutout - yet no exhaust exists there and it was just making tons of noise. Funniest thing I've seen in a while. It was fun having a ton of Volvos in my driveway today.......3 04 S60R's, 05 S40 T5, 98 V70XC, 08 C30 T5. And a Ford Explorer carrying a set of Pegs. It was kind of like that song from Sesame Street "Which one of these is not like the others..."

Re: (Edogg218)

What a crazy evening I had...<p>My R is currently at a shop, waiting to get the Svenske exhaust modified to fit. For some reason, between the muffler, resonator, and tip added to the setup, it became customized to that V70R, and just didn't line up. I should have been able to remove the 4" extention and call it a day, but it just didn't happen.<p>Word of advice to everyone: Your R will love not having an exhaust at the end of the downpipe, performance wise, but your brain will take time to recover. I cannot drive the car over 3k rpms while getting around because it is just TOO loud. I was parking the car for the night, last night, and I was rolling through a regular neighborhood at a little under 2k rpms. I st off a car alarm well before I even passed that car...

Re: (GiRaff3)

That's good shizzle tho. Nothing like a little comraderie and "we really shouldn't be doing this" caught on film. It sounds pretty cool on video, but I'm sure the noise from just under your seats would get unbearable.<p>I took my '88 Mustang GT for an open header run after I put the new clutch and tranny in. Thankfully the car was back up on ramps and I was under it when the cop showed up. Stupid neighbor...
