I just wanted to say that I don't condone loud pipes on the street. I think it's rude, because it is, and roaring through town is a great example of "how to be a total jerk". So upon the installation of a really loud exhaust, we've decided to do something called:
1. When accelerating, don't exceed 3500rpm, that's when the rasp gets naughty.
2. Push in the clutch while braking to a stop or turn. Noone around you knows (or cares) what a proper heeltoe downshift sounds like.
3. Don't leave the car idling outside for extended periods of time, such as overnight, or while at work.
4. Don't substitute revving your engine for a car horn, when signaling to the motorist ahead of you that the light has indeed turned green.
Follow these few simple steps to cheaper, more efficient travel/meal preparation, and keep the neighbors from cutting your brake lines at the same time!
