vf34

I plan on buying a vf34, thats the one im getting, dont try to persuade me to get another one. I only want a little more power, not something crazy. Anyway, someone told me that when I put on the vf34, and run straight from the downpipe, it will sound like that green Talon on Fast and the Furious. I was wondering if it will actually do that?

I think that person was BSing. I don't even remember what the Eclipse sounded like, but I know it didn't have the lumpy boxer sound which is what you will have.

vf34 sound

Don't worry the sound you will get will be the nice deep throaty boxer noise. You'll love it.

Well you will be able to hear the turbo spooling, but it shouldn't be noticable over the exhaust note, unless inside the car.

You'll like the sound of the VF34 & DP. Add catback, headers & up-pipe & you'll love it. As far as duplicating the sountrack from a lame movie, not sure how you can get the sound of shifting gears 17 times per quarter mile and especially that elusive sound of burning rubber on dirt roads!

First off, the turbo spooling on the DSM was sound effects. The Eclipse in the movie was N/A. I ran open downpipe for about the last month while waiting for my new exhaust. The turbo really only spools loud at less than 20% throttle. As soon as you hit boost, there is no way you are goin to hear it spool over the exhaust. You will get sick of open downpipe anyways, trust me. Get a good sounding catback and inside the car you will definately hear your VF34 spool.

+1 to that. 5months of catless uppipe and open TXS downpipe was enough for me.

What if you get an UP and a CBE? And is there any DP with just one cat?

I second that opinion. That has to be one of the most movies every made.
