    V8 Exhaust blip

    Ok i know we cant discuss competition of speed on here but does anyone notice the srt8 blip sound when your car shifts gears. I can put it in manual and time it just right and stay on the gas and the exhaust makes a nice deep blip going to second and going to third, but lately its been doing it in automatic mode.

    Re: V8 Exhaust blip

    you ever heared a srt8 300 or charger takeoff? the thunderclap happens right after the car shifts gears its like a mechanical sneeze and sounds good, the cathedral port tbss also make this nice sound. maybe its a fastburn head type of thing i have the slightest idea but its lovely. funny my exhaust has always been loud even my oem setup with just a intake i got asked is it a V. I'll make sure I get video today or sometime this week.

    Are you tuned Charles? Did gutting your cats throw any codes?.. most cars, especially v8's back fire and "crackle" alot when they go catless. Since the cats arent there with rich air fuel ratios the unburnt gas burns and pops on decel and gear shifts

    I did the spark plug non fouler trick. Took 2 plugnon foulers and opened one up a tad then a brass gas filter for an old school cutlass and no more ses light. And I'm not tuned. I think I'm gonna get tuned soon. I hope I don't loose my rumble sound I've been loving the looks on folks face as I pass by. and still yet to get video sorry guys

    Possible to get pics of your tips and mufflers? Video would be nice too but I know it's asking too much

    Sounds loud and in charge! Just like a V8 should

    I noticed in your pics that your rear bumper is all white...Did it come like that or did you have it painted? Mine has that ugly gray plastic on bottom piece that goes around the exhaust tips...It looks WAY better all white...

    just read up on google about the spark plug non fouler trick. potentially leaning out the a/f's scares the crap out of me

    The backs don't tell any a/f mixture they just tell the cats are working
