Revving in Neutral

10156 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  ChrisNTN
I just put a cold air intake onto my car, and it sounds great when I'm driving and I floor it. Has a really good sound to it. Usually around 5000-6000rpm. However, when people say "Let me hear what it sounds like", and I go to rev the engine, I can never get that sound.

Is it because the car is capping at 4000rpm? or is there another reason? I would love to be able to give people a preview of the sound without have to be driving at 60mph.

With the drive-by-wire throttle systems on these cars you'll never get anywhere close to full throttle opening when revving in neutral. No throttle opening means no air in, means no loud noise. Not really any way around it.
