    of course if you see all the "cool kids" now are routing out the front right out of the turbo. maybe I should get a yugo exhaust and pipe it up to the front :)

    The exhaust "trend" I love (sarcasm) is where they emulate the sound of a Subaru (offset pipe lengths on boxster engine causes that 'flatulent' sound) by making a header with intentional unequal length tubes for other vehicles. They actually add one or two big loops into some of the cylinder's tubes to throw off the pulses, just so it makes the odd sound like the Subi's do. It is a weird 'burble' like something is wrong with the engine, akin to the uneven idle of a Harley (Japanese bike makers put offset cams in their Harley clones for the same effect). Here is an example what it looks like:

    Stock Subi exhaust...

    Aftermarket Honda exhaust header with "UEL" tubes...

    Another example...

    But I guess I'm not in a position to make fun of them; I do lots of stupid mods to my cars just for the 'look'.

    Or through the hood:

    But if you are going to do that, then might as well poke the turbo through also...

    And for greater effect, connect a flamethrower to it...

    Ya, that was Carl's joke - the TR7 being front engine vs the X1/9 mid-engine. ;)

    Or add a "turbo sound" to your NA exhaust with one of these added to the tailpipe tip:

    Don't have a NA car to add that to?
    Well you're in luck.
    You can add a turbo sound to your bicycle as well. Remember using clothes pins to put playing cards in the spokes? That has gone high tech:

    Now I remember why the BMW 2002 forum is so great. They have a sense of humor but keep it intelligent, nothing like fourth grade level of humor here.
    But then I recall I'm the one who started the 4th grade humor on this thread.

    I know you had to make it to at least 4th grade, because you are a doctor.

    So you are saying 4 comes after 3?
