After seeing yet another bad ass car since I sold my DSM, the Evo that took off from campus had one of the best sounding exhaust notes I have ever heard (For a 4cyl). It had a BR bullet exhaust, and sounded just super bad ass. How come quite a few Evo's have that deep tractor sound to it and I can't recall a DSM sounding that good?

For example...

vs Fonz's car...

Is there a reason? Or is it just the twin scroll setup and the fact that the design, although still a 4g63, is different?

Bsmart, how does the car sound at wide open throttle/part throttle cruising? That is the only thing. I ran an open downpipe for a little while and it did sound very low, but didn't sound good while actually driving. MAybe it is just me, but everytime I see an Evo, they sound amazing. Only a handful of DSM's sound decent.

Do you have an example video of a good sounding EVO at WOT?
I am looking for one. The one I am thinking of I can't find anymore.

Edit: Found one. It isn't all that loud, but it sounds great. Couple that with the low rumble that they tend to have at idle and you have an awesome combo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_Qp4vUWbms&feature=player_profilepage

Bsmart. I am sure this is a dumb question, but where do you mount the muffler under the car? How long of a piece of pipe do you have after the muffler?

Are you thinking of the 37R EVO vs the 500rwhp Cobra video?

I can't find that one anywhere and it was by far my favorite street racing video...

Thanks for the info. When I build my 1g it looks like that will be the setup I will go with.

Riley, I have been looking on youtube for the Video you are talking about but I don't know which one is the right one. If you want to watch a good Evo video though....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKmFIUYr0Rg

Sounds pretty darn good to me.

Maybe you're used to hearing cammed dsms vs. stock cam evos. Honestly, I'm not a fan of lope, so I doubt I'll ever have a set on a street car. Won't ever need to go that fast on the street anyway.

Also it could be the fact that generally, if the vid is of a DSM, they either don't have the money for a cam with a quality mic, or they spent the money they would have used, on something DSM related :p

That car sounds like every other DSM out there. It must be the fact that you don't like lope. I think the lope is what makes the idle. But yeah, I have thought about the fact that the camera is most likely better. I just like how you put it into perspective that DSMer's are broke! :D

I have to agree with the OP. Recordings aside, in person I can tell an EVO from a DSM regardless of exhaust and/or cams. Its a subtle difference similar to a GenI small block Chevy and a LT1/4. The Gen3 and 4 SBCs are easy to to pick out by sound because the firing order id different from previous generations. Odd enough the OHV small block Ford V8s and OHC mod motors sound the same despite head design differences. Although the firing order is the same.

My only wild guess for the Mitsu sound difference is the fact the EVO's 4Gs are opposite of the DSM's. From a standpoint of exhaust pulses based of firing order the #1 cylinder on the EVO is on the pass side and the DSM on the driver's. Therefore the order in which the exhaust pulses enter the manifold is different almost as if the firing order was different.

My car sounds really good. I have a custom 3" TBE which is catless and no resonators to a Magnaflow muffler. It's always sounded mean since I put it on. I don't have a nice video camera to post a vid :(
