    Default More noise from my KB please!!!

    Just wondering if there was any good way to get more sound from my 2.6L on my 2007 GT? Short of spinning it faster... I'll be doing that anyway. I figured that opening up the inlet side with a single blade throttle body or something would probably help. It doesnt matter whether it relates to the superchager it self. Or the drive setup.
    I know the KB is a well build unit and was designed to be efficient and quiet. But I know there are a few of us hardcore blower guys out there that would like a little more of that cool KB blower whine.
    Thanks in advance for any incite anyone may have.

    My got slightly louder a WOT when I put the mono blade on (stage 2). I picked up about 1.5 psi but ran no faster at the track.

    I would have liked more whine too, but I haven't heard of anyone turning up the whine except for a few who said increased boost resulted in increased whine.

    single blade throttle body. The shorter the intake, the louder it will be. If you get one of the filter mounted to the end of the MAF under the hood dealies, you will get the loudest setup. Also, the lighter the material between the MAF and the intake, the louder it will be.

    I have have to agree. I always thought the same thing. I mean look at the Saleen blower with shaker setup. Its quite a bit louder. But dont let KB know your messing with thier intake setup because it will let in too much underhood heat.
    What I've been wanting to do is an "old school setup". A "shaker type" intake setup with a polished highborne style scoop that will stick through hood. A container of some sort to sit between the scoop and blower that would contain the maf, filter and maybe TB. Either feeding into the inlet of the KB or a custom inlet feeding directly into the rear of compressor from the top.
    I've grown up around the old hotrods and they are still cool today. If this was put together right it should look just as cool. The only thing I havent quite figured out is a way to temporarily keep out water if stuck out in rain. Maybe make the scoop and lower solid but removable and have a pan to seal in the opening in the hood. If anyone has wanted to produce something similar to this or is good at fabing parts let me know.

    What type of air inlet system do you have on yours? It's hard to tell from your signature.

    This is one of my first pulls after install. Most of the noise is from the dynojet. You can hear the KB in the upper RPM's though.

    You mean fail as in why are they not loud enough? I think they come off louder in the video. My full exhaust is loud enough to cover it up.
