Ghl noise

All shot a very short video from a cold start. Very little revving as the car is not warm but sounds great I think! Thoughts, comments, suggestions, emotional outbursts?

I think it sounds good. How bad is it in the car at 65?

At 65 it isn't an issue. Anything above 3000 rpm isn't a problem. Still noisy in the car but not a big deal. 20 to 45 is really noisy in the cabin top up or down. 2500rpm to 3000rpm is noisy. But it is easy to feather the throttle and shift out of it. I couldn't drive cross country but I wouldn't anyway. It will be great for car shows and weekend cruises though.

The exhaust sounds great. Enough with the ********************ing about drone ! The box now sounds like it has a "set" ! Drive it and enjoy it !

I also agree with J.D. My Charlie Chan muffler sounds the same and I LOVE it! Also that little burble when you back of the throttle and enjoy the downshift. Yes, it is loud but then so is a Ferrari and a Corvette. Sometimes cannot hear wife's comments but then that is not always a bad thing...!!1 Drive it and enjoy the increased performance.
