    Default Exhaust sound

    Newbie here!! Does anyone know of a way to keep the exhaust noise in idle the same as when it starts up cold? Maybe it is just the temperature??

    Think that’s impossible as when you start from cold it will have choke on then as it warms up the choke will drop off so without speeding your revs up constantly then no you won’t be able to. Welcome to the vxr group tho

    Yeh most folk go for a bigger exhaust. When changing you’ll need to look into turbo back exhaust which is normally the exhaust people go for. Remus used to be very popular but I’m pretty sure they aren’t made anymore. Piper is the most used one for the (h) model. Turbo back gives it a definite beefier noise tho

    Why would you want to do that though?

    Agreed. This is not going to give you that deep growl sound. Just an irritating high pitched rev sound. It only makes the deep growl on start-up as the the air fuel ratio is richer to protect the internal components. It aids with lubrication and slower temperature fluctuations. Most modern performance cars do this.
