I'm waiting for a company to come out with a set of plugs for the stock intake system that plugs all the resonance chambers.

And? What's the difference in sound? Is it significant? Do you hear the exhaust more, or is it just quieter all around?

Yes how did it impact cabin sound, hopefully quieter? Did you plug the line to the cabin to prevent vapour ingestion? I assume that you plugged the intake opening?

Yeah, I'm on this side of the fence as well. I'd like to make it louder. I rode in a pre-production car and could SWEAR it was significantly louder in the cabin. Does anybody know for a fact if anything was changed regarding noise levels for the production cars?

Our intake kit will come with a delete plug. That's what Mattles has on his car, in prototype form. It's pretty easy to remove the sound tube, but you need to plug the hole left in the intake tube and the hole in the firewall.

Well if anyone hears of a way to increase the noise level. Let us know.

I can tell you that last Friday at 9:00 pm it was cold outside(turbo weather) And the note seemed louder than normal.

So how much quieter is the cabin?

Hard to say, because we are running it with our intake. It has not been tested with the stock system.
