How can i make my V8 sound meaner?

Hi

I want the EFI V8 in my RR to sound meaner.

Im thinking of getting a K&N induction kit, and loosing a silencer for a
straight though bit of pipe.
Does anyone know of a supplier of such a bit of pipe?

Any other suggestions appriciated!

Mark.

Keep the silencer but ram a bar down it a few times to make sure that all
baffles are destroyed.

If you want a throaty note, you best work on the exhaust system via the muffler.
K & N will only make your intake easier to breathe.A straight pipe will make
more noise but it will be at the expense of the exhaust system.

Fit a stainless sports system. Messing with exhausts will leave it sounding
like a growling gowley thing but it'll pull like a frog on ice.

silencer!!!
