some pictures too, but i wanted to get the short AIFF sound file uploaded....but apparently can't do it. it is not a file type supported by the manage attachments. 'putfile' doesn't take it either. is anybody interested in having it in an email so they can convert into an acceptable file type...i'll dig a little more in the meantime

I can hear what one of the test drivers mention in his article. The intake sound is louder than the exhaust note at higher rpms. You may want to upgrade to the factory cat-back exhaust right away. My guess is that Pontiac needed a cheap way to get the extra 7 hp over over the Sky's 170 hp, and did so with a modified performance intake with less restriction. Just a guess though.

Actually the bump from 170 to 177 was their decision to use premium gasoline.

Kind of a nice, throaty, low-pitched rumble - I like it :cool:

I just don't understand that high-pitch, buzzy sound the kids are into these days :willy:

Actually I don't think we know that for sure or not. The car might have been using 91+ octane before too.

Unless that was supposed to be a joke :confused: you may want to invest in some better speakers ;)

Good sound! :yesnod: Sounds the same as from the Kendra victory commercial. Have pre-ordered cat-back(see sig.)

I like it. But I still may have to get a cat-back.

Where does one get the splash guards and the cat-back? And what would a cat-back actually do? The sound doesn't excite me. It seems a bit rattley (sp?) on the rev up - like some pieces of metal banging around somewhere. This is what the car should sound like:

Maybe I can use the Monsoon speakers to play the Porsche sound file when driving the Solstice! :lol:
