    Challenge Race X-pipe sound clip + OE Tuning dyno

    I got this challenge race x-pipe on, so if you wonder what it sounds with the stock mufflers, here it is:



    I personally like it, sounds good, definitely better than stock x-pipes. An aftermarket muffler will make it sound even better (throatier), but it's absolutely not obnoxiously loud or ricey.

    I also got it dyno tuned by Jeremy @ OE tuning. BTW I highly recommend OE Tuning, they provide excellent customer service, great product, and their tune gives nice gains, + I got my car dynoed.

    Baseline (no tune, x-pipes on) was HP 327.1 TQ 243.8 on a dyno dynamics, which reads so much lower than DJ dynos, but the point is that with just the tune we gained an additional 15-19 HP and 12-14 TQ and peaked 346.2/257.2.

    I'm satisfied with these numbers and gains, I think they're pretty solid for just a single bolt-on + tune.

    Unfortunately I didn't dyno the car bone stock, which could have been another good comparison baseline.

    It's resonated, and there is no drone.

    Here's a sound clip. It's pretty quiet inside.

    It was just an audio clip, so I added a pic and converted it to a video, so it could be uploaded to youtube.
