The connection between your foot and the intake noise becomes slightly delayed with a turbo. The sound on a civic or M3 or 5.0 mustang are much deeper then a F10 M5 or skyline or any turbo car. Which sound more like a jet airplane or other turbine powered machines as they are turbos as well.

Hows the power and throttle response feel? Sound shouldn't be the only factor especially if its just cause its louder then stock as that is a part of more flow and less restriction

Hope it grows on you.... I know I love mine

Yep, I'm familiar. It just doesnt sound like I thought it would. the only other turbo car I've owned is a 997 Turbo... and this sounds nothing like those turbos. the porsche was more of a whistling... this just sounds like a rush of air.

I'll drive it more and see. I was just expecting more from an expensive intake like this.
