SR20VE low lobes sound
I was positively surprised when I for the first time took my SR20VE for a spin. Before I did the VE swap, I built a 2.5" freeflowing exhaust, with only a tiny straight thru muffler. It was LOUD with the DE, and I didn't like the drone when cruising.

After getting the VE in, I expected even more noise, because VVL you know...

I got: Silence!

I had no idea that it was so pleasant sounding at low lobes. I had even started planning for adding a more restrictive muffler. No need at all, much quieter than a DE!

But when the VVL hits... It's proper loud

When i had the DE in my car it sounded a certain way, but when i put the VVL in my car it sounded quieter and much nicer. I really think it was the higher compression that made the noise difference. It also accelerated faster. (note i hadn't hooked up VVL at the time.)

Are you SURE it's activating? My entire car vibrates and EVERYTHING makes more noise once I cross that plateau....
