Default Bonneville=Tank

So i finally drove the bonneville to work after getting tags on it. I have a a/c problem which im going to get taken care of tomorrow. I take my boss out to let him here the noise as well as the oh so pretty supercharger whine. Now mind you right now the exhaust consists of a downpipe/stock cat and about 3 foot of exhaust/rice muffler. So the car is pretty loud.
I start up his reaction

"Jesus it sounds like a tank. "
So its official i now own a lightly armored tank.

That'* pretty funny really!!!

There are a few ways to get some really good tone, with the right components. To get rid of the rasp (if you want to), get a resonator. Then a Flowmaster 80 or equivalent makes for a nice tone. Of course, there are lots of other options.

Get a sound (.put) file posted.....
