I just bought a touring, might be able to get it on this weekend. Based on the videos I saw, the touring is just a touch quieter and I plan to add headers later, so don't want it to sound like my old camaro. When I get it on I'll try to post a video. I think the sport was borderline for me, so I went more conservative.
The sound is throaty but not overbearingly loud. Some will say it's too loud, some might say it's not ear deafeningly loud... but it's quiet until 1/4 throttle then its kinda loud. It sounds good and i like that its kinda quiet down low. quality was great, the bolt holes were pretty tight on the base of the installation, i had to ream them out a little but snug fit is a good fit.
I think I'm going to go with one of the JL stealth boxes, I like that it doesn't use any space in the back. I might have to get one of those alpine restyles also to round it out. Decisions.... Decisions...
Fumoto, the appeal of magnetic never really held weight to me. Any shavings that get close enough to get stuck on that magnet are bound to rest down there anyway. Either way, the convenience of the fumoto is worth any exaggerated risk.
A totally non biased opinion, I don't know that one is better or worse than the other with respect to a relatively stock or bolt on vehicle. If the vehicle was heavily modified I wouldn't be doing an email tune anyway. So, go with what makes you more comfortable. I have heard mixed reviews about the warranty thing, but generally if you can set it back to stock before you take it in I haven't seen any widespread negative feedback. Just for thought.
After much internal debate about buying a Diablo tuner, I went with diablew. His customer service is awesome and for a daily it's a no brainier. We don't need to tuners and autocal on a daily like this. So the price point is more attractive. You?
I dont know about the 8 speed, but the 6 speed shift kinda crappy stock. It's always lugging the motor and anytime you get on it more than 1/16th of throttle it studders around looking for the best gear. After the tune though, its very pleasant to drive. The gears are almost un noticeable yet firm.
