So xe with induction kit.
Full S/S exhaust...(looks like sebring?? oval tail pipe)

Feck me it's loud..........

What kind of sound does everbody else get? I know it's down to zorst etc but just wondering...Have to check zorst never asked guy about silencers or that...I take it there will be no cat on it anyway...

Probably a daft question but.....Who cares..I don't

there will be more posts like this..

can't believe Joff fell for the viper trick

yet a turbo-zet is nonsense

is it the words that make people believe in some things & not others?

My old 2.1 16v corsa had a custom JP exhaust and that sounded awesome, even better when the throttle bodies were fitted and the limiter was raised to 8k! The sound when you hit the limiter in second was amazing!

Sounded as good as my P1 does!

I had a one-off made, for free.

No trick behind the Viper, just common sense.
  • More airflow
  • Air sourced from outside of the vehicle
  • IF hot air is the big problem everyone says it is then you won't get any of that with the Viper
  • quieter than a normal cone filter
  • Longer service intervals than most other performance filters


    And what's wrong with a turbo zet? I have two fitted in series And twelve vortex exhaust inserts.

    i have videos of andys and sounds amazing!!
    Yep that will be your alternator belt, mine does it all the time and when its wet and i pull away, i have tightened it up, fitted new belt and alternator, i think its a design flaw as they dont allign 100% correctly.

    i have guessed that!
    You can try tightening it up, but i guarantee it will squal again after a while, it shouldnt be that bad though, mine stops after a few seconds really.
