I can still hear the turbo whine on my 240D - it's me doing the whining though.

Anyone know if you can get a Force Motors turbo 240D engine into the US?

I made a straight thru s.s. exhaust and that really gave me a very pronounced turbo whine on both acceleration and decceleration. No hood blanket but the sound comes from the exhaust pipe. I like it!!

Does your exhaust system help economy or power? How loud is it?

Some say there's no way it can give you more power, but I feel there was a definite increase. Noise was fun at first but at 70 my eyes started to vibrate. The pipe is 2.5 inches to the rear axle then 3 inches with a downturn at the end. I had to make a resonator to calm it down. Took the same 2.5" pipe and drilled 3/8" holes in it, then covered with 4" pipe fully welded. The pipe is industrial sanitary pipe from the scrap yard, real thin and easy to tig weld. Cheap because it's light. Also 304 S.S.!! Anyway, I installed the resonator where the first stock one would be and much better. Still a little drone but bearable. A very distinctive sound though at 75mph, almost like a giant cicada! Cool. I'll try to post some pics from my phone. Stock exhaust-400-500.$$; scrapyard SS pipe, $35.00.
