and i was right. I like the way those cars sound taking off. Not speeding or anything, just normally pushing down on the accelorator and hearing that lovely pearl town coming from the pipes. SSE'* from 96-99 have a softer sound.

I can tell that too. I can tell a n SSEi from an SSE (don't ask) a GT an GTP sound alike though until you mash on that gas. I can tell a series I from a series II as well

My exhaust is different from all stock setups, but i know EXACTLY what the engine itself sounds like on startup. I was pumping gas this week, heard an L27 fire, turned around, and saw a buick sitting there going.
