I've got to disagree with you on the diesel thing though... I love the sound of a diesel, expecially an early Cummins (dodge) just rattling away.
Have you ever touched the throttle on a 1400 V-Twin? I seriously doubt it with that statement, non-revving? HA!

Anyone who relates any non-actually-related subject to penis size or sexual inclination as an intended insult needs to grow up.

Loud is only appropriate if it is a byproduct of significantly improved performance, IMHO. Pure race vehicles of all types fall into this category. 85 HP automatic 4 cylinder 4 door Altimas with a fart can scorching the plastic bumper cover out back do not. OTOH a different sound than stock is a matter of personal preference. My GTO sounds much better with Magnaflows and an X-pipe, but if it runs any better I can't really tell. In conjunction with the Vararam "ram air" it may have slightly snappier throttle response. But it's not loud until WOT.

And anyone who can't take a joke who feels compelled to about it needs to just grow some thicker skin.

Your post wasn't written as a joke, or if that was your intent you failed. I'm not , nor am I personally affected by anything you're said. But I bet some "homos" might take offense.

Than again, anyone who chooses to represent themselves on an international forum by using an early '90s teenage cliche isn't to be taken very seriously anyway. Maybe misplaced sexual humor is the limit for you?

That being said, are you here to talk about cars, or to toss out juvenile insults?

Well you obviously are . I'm here to talk cars, but some dudes think they need to throw in something about compensating for lack of male anatomy if they don't like or agree with the kind of car you're driving. That usually says said individual has one thing on his mind and it's not cars. If they'd only leave this stuff out of the posts. Cars are just a form of self expression, and not a compensation for anything. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Your absolutely correct. Never touched one and couldn't even tell you what bike they are in. My statement was more geared towards what I hear on the road, mostly some sort of Harley with straight pipes revving slow and sounding flat... never said I was right about everything or anything !

I'm guessing you're talking about a Sportster, both of my dads Harleys have never sounded flat, nor did they rev slow.

Based on the complete lack of proof when most people replace a portion of their exhaust with an aftermarket part and claim "the new flowmasters definitely give me more power."

And you have proof that they don't? Aftermarket exhausts are much less restrictive, apparently you have no idea.

Didn't you say exhaust system though?

I certainly know for a fact that Subaru Impreza Turbos benefit greatly from a turbo back system. A better DP certainly helps as well, but Turboback alone does wonders too.
