Thats the same as saying " How can I get my Honda 4 to sound like a Harley???".

Two different engines, two different sounds.

The closest I got was my EF Gli when I put on Pacemakers and 2½' system. It only had the cat and one muffler the rest was pipe no hotdogs or anything. It also had an oval tip. It was an auto and when I rode the revs down it burbled like a V8. Also at idle it sounded tough as.
Now I've got an EL XR8 and it never sounded as good as my XR8.
It was once pulled over for excessive noise by the next owner. The cop thought it was a V8.

Good luck mate.. You cant get rid of that s**t inline 6 sound that we all know and love :lol: :lol: You can make it sound a little tougher with a nice exhaust


the inline 6 actually does sound pretty good, f**k load better than a v6.


Im not the biggest fan.. with a good exhaust they sound alright but the actual engine noise is pretty bad. I preffered my old EA sound becuase of the Pod filter intake. Ill get around to it on the BA. The Aurion V6's sounds alright with a nice exhaust on them.
