Okay, so i have this idea of all you people recording a video to get an idea of exhaust notes, for people considering what exhausts to buy.


unfortunately i have no video of mine at the moment, but if you think its a good idea then post up a link to your video and list what your exhaust is...


if you don't think its a good idea, then... well.... never mind.

Yeh sounds like an alright idea

problem is that the sound quality on most video recording equipment is rubbish!

Not a bad idea.

You would have to specify more than just the exhaust though.

Air filters, carb type and engine size alsoplay a massive part in the sound.

But a good idea.

Lil tip on the sound quality: place the camera 3-5 meters away from the car, still preferably behind it. The sound may be slightly quieter, but the quality should be allot better than most of these vids with people who put them right underneath the exaust.

It would be a novel resource for creative peeps too. You'd probably get the best results recording directly on to a laptop.

Maybe this helps a bit. It's in german, but engine specs should be understandable (K&N is the same in german :o)

Most exhausts sound different under load, thought :D
