    I may go ahead on that mount. I got my symposer delete done just now. Silicone cap on charge piping.

    I did that exact silicone one too, now you HAVE to do something with the exhaust it is SO quiet that you find yourself driving too fast with out that feedback! LOL

    I like the quiet. Wife complained about that loud noise inside the car and she couldn’t sleep when we take trips! If the car is quiet, she’s quiet. Make sense? I’ve been down the mid wormhole before and recently remodeled because I was gonna sell. Taking a different approach this time. More interested in the subtle stuff. RMM, AP3, FMIC, e30, Turbosmart Plumb back.

    "Happy wife, happy life" for sure but can't agree on zero exhaust mods. Car becomes EERILY quiet for that much speed and lack of feedback, you're not even tuned now, just wait until you go e30. It is FAR from subtle I'm telling you will end up with speeding tickets and/or dangerous situations, there is a reason Ford provided some feedback even though it's the cheesy Symposer... Personally I was cheap and just did a muffler to glasspack swap but I'd very much at least do a SLIGHTLY louder main rear muffler just to hear what is going on. You can get ones that are very refined and mature sounding if you spend a good $125 or whatever, I kept all the rest of the exhaust stock so no rumble or drone in the mid-section either...

    But OK, fine, just a res delete adds a TINY bit of sound but actual zero drone, it's the muffler delete guys who get all the drone... You may have got the wrong car if you wanted THAT level of subtle ;)

    For whatever reason that plumb back makes a fair bit of ruckus too. Made my turbo sound like a hair dryer. When I took it off, car got quieter under accel.

    Interesting, someone had said it was even quieter than stock but some added sound is OK, will probably be hidden by glasspack that booms under accel now anyway, LOL... But wait, where did you hear me considering that BOV? Are you on the FB groups too and haven't noticed you?

    I actually did a review for it and we discussed I think! I sold mine with many regrets.
