I wanted to see if there were any cold start differences w/ small revs with different intake set ups while stationary.
While driving there is for sure. But stationary, nah. Sounds better with headphones if you can pick it up with the bass. But nothing wild

My 2 cents for intake/exhaust sound.
Just installed my dinan CF intake from my OEM intake with BMC filter. With the BMC filter and stock neck, the car felt normal. No added “umpf” on top of the alpine tune/sucking air in noise. Driving with this set up for 8k miles at least.

What I feel now with the “larger” dinan neck and 40 mile work to home drive. No added audible air sucking in when I throttle. But it feels/sounds like each cylinder is more audible (pulsing), getting more air in, giving the exhaust sound additional volume. Sounds sick. Planning on having my go pro mic’d to catch this.
