First one at idle...cam was right behind the tips on the ground. I think the clip is decieving. Sounds much better from a few feet away, but it was just me and the 1 1/2 year old...I dare not give him the camera! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/?action=view&current=Idle.flv" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/th_Idle.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>Next 2 are driving...1st one with windows down and 2nd one with windows up...wish I had help to do some drive by clips for ya...<p><A HREF="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/?action=view&current=WindowsDown.flv" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/th_WindowsDown.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/?action=view&current=WindowsUp.flv" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/chrsmsn/Car/th_WindowsUp.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>

The first clip I can tell is dicieving because it sounds very different than the driving clips. The same thing happened when I recorded my exhaust positioning the camera right near the tips.

Far from the true sound I hear from the driver's seat.

Re: Muffler removed clips.... (SoCal_S60R)

Nice clips - but as people say - the first one sounds like a Ford F1350 Diesel....<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

The verdict is still out on it. I figure I'll give it a week or so. If it doesn't grow on me by then, I think I'll go back in and replace the resonator with a high flow muffler.
