Greddy Type-S Recirculated

https://www.miataturbo.net/forums/sh...1&postcount=48

Although I played a little with the tension yesterday and I got it to sound more like a whoooosh. Similar to "Whoosh on the Track" on the FM TV page. http://www.flyinmiata.com/video/index.php?no=2

yeah I got five comments that day that I have a ghost car....you saw it haul *** but you couldn't hear it one bit. I had a 2.5" DP, 2.5" high flow cat, to a 2.25" Borla Dual exhaust. It has a good note, it's just not loud.

I was thinking about a 2.5 inch down pipe leading into 2.5 inch exhuast into a dynomax turbo muffler, kinda like a factory look , then have a 2.5 pipe leading out the back.

I have the type-s on my turbo with both lines hooked up. It gives an insanely loud whistle when it lifts. Put it like this, you don't hear my exhaust when I am blocks away - you hear my BOV. Definitely the loudest at any auto-x that I have heard. I pulled the 2nd hose off it once and it lost all the volume. I only ran like that for a few minutes before I hooked it back up because I missed the sound.

hmmm I gotta try it with the 2nd port plugged in...I only ran it that way when it was VTA, it held it closed pretty good that way.

Sounds about right! I've been driving around more today and noticed that I tightened it too much, so back to chirping I go.
