Awesome to hear, and its not disturbing inside? WK2 probably has some good sound proofing as well...

It's great to read this thread after having driven with the ATAK for about 1000 miles. I totally agree that all will be happy with the S or ATAK... They both are fantastic. Please be advised that there is a definite difference in sound at the shiftpoints once the computer adjusts to the new system. The shifts become extremely crisp with no "burping" noticeable. The entire system also becomes louder (in a good way). I don't have the same concerns as many have posted about the MDS going in and out. Inside the vehicle it is barely noticeable IMO.

Borla S sound

Rivetpro - Thanks for your excellent work. I listened to the sound clips on different days and different times and I knew I had heard that same sound before on a vehicle. Then, there it was - Porsche Cayenne. It has almost the same exhaust tone and note. Search for one and see if it isn't almost the same.

I am definitely in. By the way, I think I am also fixing to install the BWoody CAI kit on mine. I thought about the Hennesey CAI but the BWoody sure seems like it would work a lot better. What are you going to do for an intake??

I'm just going to reinstall my AEM drop in, dry filter. the CAI doesn't work unless you open up the exhaust.

Cai

Firetruck - After all the research that I did on this subject, the BWoody is worth the plunge to me. But, I understand, from the guys here, that the ECU can take up to a couple of thousand miles to completely learn the new driving patterns.

I would say its similar, but, I would think the atak would sound more like this cayenne video
.

The s-type borla sound less "flappy" and a lot smoother. The s-types borlas downshift is amazing. Now I use the paddles all the time. I basically drive around town in first gear because it sounds awesome.

I have done a lot of research and have no problem with the expense of the bwoody, but the hydro lock scares the hell out of me. That vent is so close to the ground and splashing puddles is the worry. Alot of people have success with the Bwoody, but, Remember, a splashing puddle is a bunch of randomly deposited water and it could be just luck. 9,000 for a new engine is just too risky. as for the design, I do believe bwoody takes the cake. Ram air is the way to go. Hennessy is pretty, but im not sold on it yet. No cold air, no heat shield, and a very hot engine doesn't make a good mix. I think henneseys results were done on a cold day at startup. I am thinking if making my own if someone doesn't design a better one soon. Or just going with an in filer in the existing box. That box pulls air from the vent under the rig. Look at the airfoil in front underneath the bumper. It routes cold air into the box. At least I think it takes in cold air better then the hennesey. Not about to spend 400 on hennesey that looks nice but doesn't show much improvement. If you're in the desert then bwoody is designed well. Hydro lock isnthenmain concern.
