Sound ??

Not sure I like it. Top RPM range is sounds good. Doesn't "suck" like a civic because its FI but it does have a little of the sound. The wastgate purge is cool. There is a semi wierd sounding flutter at mid rpms(3500-4500) if u roll into it. Sounds like a flutter sorta noise. Almost sounds like something is broken. Could be embarrasing sounding. Not sure i like that. Did you guys notice the same? Admittedly I only drove about 2mi. Still only have 700 on the car so time will tell.
I experienced the same noises with mine. I think it makes the car sound more JDM and less classy. Mine is most likely coming off soon.
