I'm getting that for my wife's VW Eos. That thing sounds like an electric car it's so quiet.

That is so cool! Sounds tons better than the crappy mufflers kids put on their cars to make them sound like weed whackers LOL

I used to take offense to that. My Civic never sounded like a weed wacker. Then again it took me 4 mufflers before I found one that didn't sound like a weed wacker.

Back on topic, I wonder what this would sound like in a car with a decent system.

sorry I'm going to have to say that that is completely lame. Also my 4cylinder sounds way better then either of those clips. (of course that might have something to do with the 3inch exhaust fed by the giant turbo but thats being picky)

You do realize that a vehicle does need a certain amount of back pressure or you will start to lose torque.

yep and I lose low end torque right up to about 3200rpm when the turbo spools. Its a very fair trade off for the top end power. When your pushing lots of power back pressure eventually works against you and you need to increase exhaust size. I know people running 4" exhausts on 2.0L 4cyl and they certainly need it to produce the 800hp they're putting down.
