Post stock exhaust note survey thingy :)

I was wondering about different Pt's engine sounds and exhaust notes. My PHCE has a rather low tone and is kindof loud under hard acceleration. I was wondering how others sounded. I would like as many answers as possible. Specify the engine type and describe the sound. I am doing this because I am thinking of swaping my engine out for another but I really like the noise mine makes. Thanks for your input!

Stock N/A PT's are quiet as heck. Not too much engine noise, even under hard acceleration. The big heavy muffler quiets the exhaust down to nothing.

If you like the sound your PT makes, it probably has a new air intake or the muffler has been replaced.

I have a Spectre short ram upgrade and a thrush turbo exhaust. It sounds pretty bad A if I do say so myself, even under low acceleration.

I'll have to get a video eventually...

I am thinking it might be something about the PHCE because the wind noise is a kindof bad at highway speed and I am thinking the cabin has less sound-proofing. Also I have noticed that it is more the noise coming from the engine and not the muffler.
