Do you have the "crackle and pops" tune? Or is that with just a turbo back exhaust?I have a catless turboback setup, and it typically crackles on decel, and has loud pops on revmatched downshifts. Its definitely a head turner, but the interior does a good job in mitigating a lot of the noise so i really dont get to hear much of it when im driving.
Resonator delete and swap the muffler for magnaflow or something similar.. I just did this to mine last week and its perfect.. Only loud at wot otherwise its pretty quiet..Hi,
I just got my new focus st 2014, and my main goal is to improve the sound (hopefully somewhere around the sound of the new AMGs with the popping downshift noise).
I am new to car tuning so I don't know many technical terms...
We have a very ticky engine from the front, and a typical i4 noise from the back. We don't rev high enough or have enough compression to sound super impressive.Nothing really makes these cars sound good.
I did a resonator delete as well. I decided to unplug my sound symposer and enjoyed it a lot better after the resonator delete was done... IMO this is how it should've came from the factory.my resonator delete didnt really seem to increase any noise when wot, at least nothing noticeable in the cabin. I kept the symposer just to have some kind of noise. Im just not used to such a quiet car,lol.
Im also used to daily driving track cars where the passenger has to shout to carry on a conversation so maybe Im not the best person to compare loudness levels.
