Re: Zetec's Cat-back sound files
In that case I'll use it Chris!!
Tim, the 0-60 changes were all below about 4000rpm from memory.
Normally the car sees 1st redline at about 40, 2nd at 80, 3rd at about 130 and 4th I've never redlined but hey, something I'll have to try one day!!!!!!!
And Talldude, I get absolutely NOTHING at 100km/h, no drone WHATSOEVER. That's the amazing thing about it.... It burbles on idle, has gorgeous popping on throttle lift off, barks on changes, sounds great with the windows up (quiet enough to have low stereo) but loud enough when you get on it and at top revs, you hear the engine still... best thing is the highway is sensational, barely a whisper. I'm stoekd and would seriously recommend anyone serious about exhausts can have a listen to mine. Also a good (if VERY quiet) exhaust is the Herrod zorst. Heard Melbzetec's on Sunday and for low down torque it craps on my car, but absolutely dies in the arse at 5500rpm. Mine's a little slower off the mark but is still screaming hard to about 6000-65000 comparitively speaking. Depends what ur after I guess. It was also a little quiet for my liking, and mine cost $300 vs $900 for Herrods, but DAMN the low down torque was amazing, a serisouly decent exhaust. Herrod definitely knows what he's doin!!! In hindsight I's still go for mine, value and sound for money, it's unbeatable. Easily replicated at any decent local zorst shop too.
