It was a pleasure to meet both Hummer and crazytrain today for a little STi KC get together. We had 3 STis there, my blue/gold, Hummer's silver/silver and crazytrain's black/silver.
It was great to finally get to really talk (not just type) about the STi with others. It's amazing how much more you can talk about in person vs. having to type it all out!
As promised, here are a few vid clips of Hummer's car to give a better idea of the sound of the TXS turbo-back exhaust. These are rather large files (~5mb each), so please right click and DL them to view.
The first one is from inside the car. At first, the passenger side door is open to let you hear it well, and then the door is closed to give an idea of what you'll hear day in, day out.
Second one....this is from behind the car. You get to hear idle as well as unloaded WOT rev up. If you listen close, you can actually hear the turbo 'whining down' as it slows from the WOT burst. Pretty cool!
I hope these don't get hit too hard and kill my bandwidth allowance. I might try to move them over to my RR account...but enjoy for now.
