    I had a z6 in my auto civ coupe. I couldnt even hear it engage and i had a full intake exhaust- stock header- and msd. How will it do when i drop one into my hatch? 5 speed dc header full exhaust. Is there anyway i can make it louder like with an aem v2 or somethin? just wonderin cause im a vtec nut

    Short ram intake, get a VTEC controller and set your VTEC crossover to 6500rpm or something. It'll really scream then, and you'll be really really slow.

    Swap in a B16 if you want to hear vtec scream.

    Single-cam VTEC doesn't scream, sorry. It exists more for fuel economy than it does for performance.

    :withstupid:

    i'm tired of hearing people say their vtec isn't loud enough- christ it's not a noise maker it's a method of increasing power

    it you want funny noises coming from your car have a friend sit in the passenger seat and make blow off valve noises between shifts

    my stock gsr rarely had a scream, but it sure does haul ass though. then it really screamed after i put in my cams and an upgraded ecu. and it hauls more ass now. it's all about power, not sound.

    B16 with a built head, with PYR race spec cams, and an open header is the loudest vtec you can get, I know, Im now part deaf........
