PostSubject: I need a Noise!   15th August 2009, 09:33

As there a no Posts for the Engine & Tuning Thread I have decided to fill that gap.

As you prob know I have a R56 Cooper s.......lovely Turbo but NO Supercharger & NO Whine Crying or Very sad
So as part of my mod plan I intend to have Induction kit fitted to Alice so she at least makes some sort of whoosh or something Wink
Not sure when this will be yet...Credit Crunch n all that but I would def like to do it at some stage! Smile

Thanks for filling the void!!

I assume your familiar with Lohen?

Check out their site and see what induction kits they have, always heard good reports about them. Smile

I can lend you my missus to stick in your back seat! Don't know if she really sounds like a supercharger, but she can half whine! Shocked Laughing

1: stick an ITG panel filter in
2: get the JCW airbox
3: get the JCW rigid air intake pipe
4: get a resonance delete pipe

have fun with your turbo whistle and bov sounds.

Mmm - used to have a Jaguar S-Type R and it sure had a supercharger whine! I was never a huge fan of the noise to be honest. However 400bhp was rather nice ... bounce
