I heard a Mustang yesterday and was very impressed witht the powerful sound of it.

Is it possible to get that deep rumble sound out of a stock 4 cyclinder motor or will it always end up sounding like a honda ricer bumble bee going down the road?

I'm not looking for loud, Just a deep sound instead of the tin sound it now makes.

AMG exhausts rumble but they are not noisy like the Mustang.

Keep us posted on the special sports filter for the 280 and 350. I am interested in the sports filter also.

Can a 4 cylinder stock motor be made to sound more like a v-8 with just a muffler change?

Or can anyone suggest a muffler that they have put on thier car to achieve this result.

Thanks,

I agree...this is R170 country...lol......But.....I gutted my primary cats and it deepened the tone tremendously.

I have yet to get my license switched over to Texas yet so I don't know for sure to be honest.

Kleemann assured me that it WILL pass inspection as they knew that I was moving to Texas and eventually need to get my license and plates switched over.

I'll let you know for sure when I actually get the inspection done.

I'm guessing if your check engine light is not on, then the state inspection machine will not be able to tell about the mod.

Some cars they put a bar up your tail pipe to measure exaust but again, I do not see why, cat or no cat, that would make a difference.

I do not think I will go that route just because cats are so expensive to replace in case I got caught.

Strange how this thread moved into R171 55's, 350s, and 380's ??

I have a Supersprint on the end of my 1998 R170 230. It is reasonable deep and gets quite loud as you stick into it.
A 4 cyl will NEVER sound like a V8.

Thanks Bazzle!

Sounds like SuperSprint is the way to go.

I'll try and find a good price on one.
