If not... ill be getting one. I have a 2.5L and I would love it to sound a little bit beefier, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW ITS NOT, but it would sound great. Im also looking for someone to sound non-ricey. If you can';t host it from those, let me know, I can host it fo ryah.

I had a Dynomax cat-back on my old 2.3L 4-cylinder. Didn't sound ricey at all, just a little louder and a lot deeper. Didn't notice much in the power increase department, but along with a K&N drop-in and an air box mod, it pulled all the way to redline. Before the mods, I would feel the power drop off around 4500 RPM.

Nope, I have head Zach's truck before and it does not sound like a four cylinder.

I know that this topic was over a week ago, but I was wondering if you could host the sound clip that you have. So that I can listen to it.
