Excuse me if this has been covered before but I seem to think that my Evo6 seems quite loud at anything over 3-3500K rpm. If I accelerate the car has the normal sort of sound upto about 3k rpm and then the engine/exhaust gets noticeably louder from here upwards ? Seems like its a lot more boomier (for want of a better word) and I can feel it through the seat??

The car has just had the major service consisting of a Cambelt etc and is fitted with the standard E6 GSR Exhaust. I have had 2 Scoobs before and am not sure whether this is standard engine noise or something else ?? Its just that I have read something about a correct procedure being followed when changing a cambelt ??

Any advice most welcome :blush:

It's more than likely your exhaust, the turbo starts spooling up about then that's why it gets noisier from then on, what exhaust have you got on it :confused:

Sorry didn't read it right :rolleyes: have you got a standard filter :confused:

Many thanks for your reply

I currently have the standard E6 GSR exhaust fitted but a new Blitz goes on the car on Friday :)

I have only had Scoobs before and the engine note on the Evo does take some getting used to. As I say its just a lot of sort of engine noise when accelerating and it seems to almost roar at about 3-3.5K rpm.

I have uprated the standard panel to a PiperX but the noise is the same with both ?

Roar is a good word, it won't be as noticeable with the blitz, it is different delivery than the scoobs I've been in and scoobs have a unique sound being a boxer engine :coolsm: I think my evo is more akin to a jap in line four bike :D

Hello...
If you change the Cambelt... take a look to the balancer shaft, normally is back 180 degrees.
It happens to me last week.
Make a search with "vibration".
Hope it helps.
