Can someone with an st200 airbox post some sounds/impressions?

I decided the 2j is amazing but not for me, I spent way too much time at the perfect RPM that it drilled my brain; I'll cook up a post or a reply to one of my 2j posts about my noise/vibe mitigation experiments. I was also wondering, does the ST200 airbox actually sound substantively different? Any chance of some sound clips? I know the Cobb intake uses the stock box but still manages to sound intake-y, I'm hoping the ST200 airbox does as well. I also have an injen intake sitting around I can toss back on, but theres nothing quite like OEM style fitment.

The only video I really found of the st200 airbox sound was of some dude thrashing his car in the driveway revving, I'd like some actual driving sounds if anyone has any. I don't care about outside, I want a little noise from the driver's seat.

I have the mountune. Same thing. It's a little louder than stock, but not by much. From the outside, it's whoosh-ier, but inside, you only hear it louder when you're on the boost. An intake hose makes a little more noise, so much that I deleted the symposer. Now I hear the whoosh-pshh pretty well when I get on it, don't notice it when I'm just putting around.
If you like all the noises, it probably won't do it for you.

That was probably my video if it had exhaust clips in it. I didn't notice really any sound difference. I didn't notice a difference in my intake sound until I replaced the hot side charge pipe, and I only hear that sound at full boost.

Yeah I would say the hot side charge pipe has a little bit of a whistle noise. What's funny is the noise increased when I put a rear motor mount on it. I'm 29 but very mature for my age. Wife is 34.

I have the ST200 I put it in the at the same time I put in my Whoosh crossover pipe. I noticed I could hear the stock diverter valve letting off and some whoosh. I then put in Mountune intake hose and now I hear more whoosh and let off from the stock blow off. I have a Turbosmart em. Plumb back going in. I also have a Mountune charge pipe I am putting in.
I have thought about a venturi velocity stack to put on the end of the cold air tube as well that might enhance intake suction and noise

I own a ST200 air box......the main reason of purchase was to keep it stock looking and I liked the fact of having the air hose in the bottom. This giving me the ability to route it too outside ambient Temp air. Now that I have a set of Fog lights that can now let cold air in due to being hooked up to the hose is something else! Love it!

Barf - I'm so tired of CA. I've half a mind to move to another state; other than being taxed to death because I made good decisions years ago, I can't even have fun with my car :|

There's an unpunched fitting in the side of the airbox, I wonder if I could drill that out and run it into the symposer hose lol

No it def wasn't your video - I would say maybe you should break that out into several separate videos; it helps people find specific content and you'll get more clicks. On one of my YT accounts I do basic tutorials for cybersecurity stuff and it makes enough to pay my internet bill each month :p

Did you see the deal on the mountune intake on the Ford performance thread? The intake hose is pre-'16, but you could sell it and get the newer mountune hose.

Again, it might not make the noise you want, but it's a true CAI.

Mine is in transit so I should have it in the next day or too . [twothumb] [wrenchin]
Sweet!

One thing I noticed - previously I was using the Injen intake with a Turbosmart EM vr2 dual-port (loud) diverter valve. I switched to the plumb-back when I installed the 2j intake, then when I went back to the Injen the entire intake is a LOT quieter than it used to be with the dual-port, and much quieter than with the stock DV. The stock DV made it so the 2j or Injen intakes were constantly "breathing". It's weird but the turbosmart valves seem in every way.. "tighter", if that makes sense.
