Default Post Your PT Cruiser Deceleration Gurgle!

Okay,

I saw a thread a while back where some folks were getting this little tune for their PT's that created decel gurgle. But wouldn't the real thing be better?

Here's my "real" gurgle with no special gurgle tune added, thanks to the properly setup NS1PT camshafts. Man, that baby sounds good!.

If your PT pops and gurgles at deceleration, for whatever the reason, post your video here!



PS: Good headphones or a subwoofer on your PC really helps pick that deep bass.

Yes it does. Of course it's an automatic. So this little engine has little or no load on it when I let off the gas while going down the road. Kind'a got that Harley sound when I hear it while moving. And not bad for a completely stock exhaust system.

When I was a kid, the popping and gurgling was what old beat-to-pieces billet hauling trucks with no exhaust pipe made when coming through town. The pipes were usually drug off at the manifolds. They often had the doors torn off of them too. But here in this strange little toy car tuner would of the future that will live in, I take it this is a good thing. So I'm fully on board.

So you were wearing socks and no pants when you made that video?



That's sounds really good. Is that with the gurgle tune or does it come naturally?

Aftermarket dual exhaust, and tuned for the burble.
Done by her previous owner.
That's the reason I drove the 2010 Couture Ed. to Colorado for "Cruiser The Rockies".
The noise in the Cowboy would have driven the wifie batty!
