Did you have a mic or another camera that synced the audio with interior video? Just wondering how far away the mic is from the exhaust, cause my car sounds nothing like yours from the inside heh. Side note: I let my friend do a drive by in my car under 3/4 load. Being a bystander to it was the bees knees, it almost sounds different from what I expected - but in a good way. I can't recommend a better way to hear it in full. So how about it OP, can we get a drive by? I'd happily myself if I had a decent camera.

I used a Go Pro Hero 2 and an external mic (audio technica PM24CM) located near the exhaust via a extension audio cable.

re a drive by, will have to wait as im a little flat out at work atm.

No need to, I can tell you what it sounds like. Have you ever heard an M3 CSL run through it's gears under full load? Remember the first time you heard a Ferrari V12? Maybe it was a V8, maybe it wasn't even a Ferrari. Let's back up a bit here in time. What about that time, when you were still young, you saw a late 60's muscle car blur by with a sound so immense it immediately triggered a synaptic response so great you're forever immortalized as a car guy. It's like that, combined with the joy of Christmas, only much much much much better. That is what the PE sounds like on cold start.

Best sales pitch for an exhaust I've ever heard!! I don't want one now...I need one now!
