    Sound Symposer Delete

    This is more out of curiosity than anything.

    I noticed that the Sound Symposer delete is a really popular modification. I got my ST and installed the Roush exhaust and it seemed to me that the exhaust is so loud that I can't hear the sound symposer.

    I noticed that other people have exhaust modifications and they still delete the sound symposer. In my mind, why bother. You can't hear it.

    Is there other reasons for the delete? Am I actually hearing it and not realizing it? Am I crazy to think that if you make your car loud enough with exhausts and open box air filters that it's not worth the time, money and effort to delete it?

    Well maybe I will consider deleting it.

    I could barely hear my symposer in the first place. I figured there is no way it can be heard over my exhaust.

    Even when my piss poor excuse for a stereo system (Sony) was a like level 8 for the volume I couldn't hear my symposer.

    I have the Roush exhaust as well. In my situation, the symposer seemed to cause a distortion to the frequency of the exhaust. Once I removed the symposer, it was a much cleaner sound, true sound of the engine at work.

    Many people remove the sound symposer to mount a OCC at that location. Others for access to a vacuum port. I deleted mine simply to clean up the engine bay a little. Besides, I like to hear my music through the speakers ad my exhaust from the exhaust, just like nature intended.

    I deleted mine before I put my exhaust on, I was installing a couple other things so it was convenient to do it while I had a lot of stuff already taken out of the engine bay . Plus just hated that hunk of plastic! But good choice with Roush! just wait till you install a DP

    I deleted mine because it was rubbing a hole in the fuel line. After that I could hear the stock exhaust.

    Well the more you know right lol

    I am glad I asked. Anyone have recommendations?

    I was looking at the steeda, I have no intentions on connecting a vacuum line or running an OCC.
