are you talking about turbo? its lot of work.. but anyway,
if you just want sound, cut your resonator on your muffler, put a straight pipe in it.. and change your secondary muffler with your choice of muffler..
your check engine light will come on though..

Whack a pod filter on it.
I did that to my '04 Rio... Actually sounded fantastic. *facepalm*

:)


EDIT: And the fantastic thing is... The sound only comes out when you put your foot down! So nice and stealthy for coming down the driveway at 1am. :D

True, if you want the sound, switch to a cone filter, though I dont think anyone makes a kit for it yet. You may have to DIY.

nope, i searched all my favourite brands, and even off-brands and nothing

there are some Generic kits but that defeats the purpose.

does it work if we just slap on an high flow Cone?

maybe we should design one ourselves and put it up for sale :D
