I have an SCT tuner and one of the cool things is that you can decide at what RPM should the limit be (launch control). I know about 2,500 RPM is about the sweet spot for a good shot off the line but at what RPMs do you think makes your ST sound good? I have a 3" Cobb downpipe and catback exhaust, the muffler and resonator were removed so I put in a glasspack to help with the drone. It has a very nice deep tone to it and 2,500 RPMs has a very low sound and it bounces off the limiter very slowly. I've heard some tuned cars that have a high rev limiter and it just sounds like a blast and I was wondering if anyone's done the same with an ST.

I've included a link for examples of what I'm talking about with a high rev limiter sound. So at what RPM produces a good sound in an ST? Thanks for reading.

A lightweight flywheel should make it bounce off the rev limiter much faster. Like this......

Were there any other parts you had to buy except for the flywheel? What brand did you decide on?

I actually don't know about that. The car in that video isn't mind. You could comment on the video and ask him.
