I can't say what the exhaust sounds like to a pedestrians ears, but it sure doesn't sound "powerful" when driving the car. What can you expect from a 2.0 litre engine. A V-8 it will never be.

R/L has a quieter, deadlier sound to it. Not like the CAI on Serenity with the growl, but while Serenity sounds bad a** with her distinct growl, Mayhem has the quieter sound more like a base SKY without CAI, but she hold her own against a lot of foes, where Serenity can't.

It is funny, but that mirrors real life and people, doesn't? All of the folks I knew who were really competently lethal people (good cops, for example) didn't need tatoos, a holstered gun or a big mouth to proclaim their bad-assness. They could smile and never shift their weight when someone had to be made to get in a police car, and they would never raise their voices, or be ugly in the process. And when off duty, they looked and acted like sedate, calm, suburban-class folks. A car doesn't have to wake the dead to be fast. Just like those people who could really whip your booty don't necessarily stand out or go around doing it..I think muffler noise is overrated. If someone gauges the performance of Mayhem by her sound, Ernest can just grin. No need to get pulled over by troopers or make a scene, you just know it.:thumbs:

Not true actually. I have a 2.0 boxer engine in my WRX and I have a catback from Autospeed Performance. Sounds just as mean as a V8, but mine revs to 7200 so I also get that great european tuned sound as well. Sounds very mean, all from a 2.0 L. I think engine and exhaust sound doesn't have as much to do with displacement as it does the shape and design of the intake and exhaust.

Here's a vid to tell you what I mean:

Thanks jonnyfilmboy for the video........is that the same as flowmasters? Has anyone installed flowmaster on their SKY yet?

I love the clean sound of the stock but cant wait to install some flows.

Sounds pretty good, but the question was about the stock exhaust sound. The Sky RL doesn't rev to 7200 either. I believe it tops out at 6K.

U R correct about the question..the stock muffler...but the aftermarket Magnaflow is the best sounding....just like a high end foreign car...just ask us...we have the real thing...and don't ask how it sounds..that is so subjective...we all hear sounds differently...
