For what its worth I got EQT's "gurgle" tune which I expected to sound... gurgly? Instead it was 6 gunshot-loud bangs every time I let off the gas. Definitely not what it was marketed as, but almost everyone disagrees with me.

No muffler + crackle tune = making friends wherever you go.

When these gurgle/pops bangs tunes came out for our platform i was one of the minority who requested them to be removed off my tunes immediately. It was funny once, then immediately became annoying. I might just be too old now though so who knows.

Yeah I think crackle tunes are definitely for the youngins. I loved it on my Srt4 but now I can see how much I must of pissed off the world as I get older. It also depends on your area of living. I suppose if you live in a more rural area, it's not as bad because the sound is spaced out (aside from probably 1 unlucky house you drive by every time and do it).

The problem is when you live in highly dense areas. You're literally pissing off everyone in every house as you let off going through the neighborhood but in your mind, you probably think everyone loves it. You would be entirely wrong to assume that. No, rather, put in your head, you are literally getting people in their houses to say, there goes that ****** ***** again, collectively.

If this is you everyone hates you and you're a douchecannon.

I agree there's a proper time and place for everything... but (*puts hat on backwards*) I'd rather be a douche having fun with buddies than be an angry old man screaming at kids passing by.
