Once while I was in Glamis with a few people a rail with a Subaru engine drove by. Is sounded like a normal 4 banger. This one guy said "Huh. It must be running a Porsche engine." Well he was wrong. It sounds that way because there is virtually no exhaust pipe since the engine is at the back of the rail.
Thanks, a WRX engine compartment is something I have not seen up close.
It's not so much getting the exact sound. No doubt a turbo will change the tone.
I guess the question now is how long are the pipes after the muffler.
I also speculate the intake is adding some to the tone also.
While the WRX in the truck is novel, we know it won't happen.
Mainly asking to get some ideas on how to build my exhaust.
