engine sound

Sorry, noob here. What guide should I follow to make the engine sound "better" when I'm revving it to higher RPMs? I'm not really feeling it with the stock engine sound. Thanks!

CAI, Headers, Overpipe, Front Pipe, Exhaust, tune, etc... Just depends on what exactly you want your car to be.

Intake.

It will run you from $200-350

It really improves engine sound and is an easy install.

LSx swap. It's the only way to make it sound better.

Have you gotten past the break-in period? After 1000 miles you can get an oil change, the car always sounds better after an oil change.

Copious amounts of Unobtainium added to your fuel, exhaust system and fuse box.

you could also block the sound tube, check for a DIY, it's a really simple change.

I heard sugar in the tank makes the sound that much sweeter. Haven't tried it yet though. There is a DIY on the net somewhere for how to do it correctly. Just search google how to put sugar in the gas tank. It should pop right up.

Two real options.

1) You can drill a hole, through the block, in each piston sleeve.

2) Lots and lots of coke. You won't even have to waste any on the car.


Seriouslt though, you can't change the sound of an engine.

As much as I LOLed at your reply, there are waaaay too many gullible people out there.

My old roommate in college asked on the web about squeaky braking noises, and followed someone's reply to put WD40 on his brake pads/discs to stop the squeaking sound.
