They sound mean because you have your shroud off. But the shroud is there for a purpose. It collects and directs ("rams") outside air to the filters. But with the shroud on, there is very little, if any, sound change over stock.

He's likely a sales guy for AMS Performance. He can't stop talking about these intakes, like it's the 2nd coming of (insert your favorite deity).smh.

Nothing sounded better than my intake on a 2013 legacy 3.6R.

Sounded like a porsche.

check out my youtube channel and scroll down. I have an entire session for the 3.6r. turn up that volume...that intake was vicious.

You never flipped the air cleaner cover over on a stock airbox on a small block Chevy w/4-bbl carb.

When you floor it, and the secondaries open, even a 301/305/307 sounds mean! LOL

The aftermarket air cleaner I put on my 68 Camaro was already open so I didn't have to flip the cover. I replaced the engine with a 400 small block, added a 600 cfm 4-bbl Holley, Edelbrock Torker manifold, Cyclone headers and dual exhausts. It sounded like Death Incarnate. God, I wish I had kept that car.

That's my experience. Sitting in the cabin - even with the window open - shroud installed, hood closed. No perceptible increase in sound. They do sound bad @$$ with the shroud off.

I too noticed no real difference in sound, at least with shroud on never taken it off while driving.

Wrote that yourself did you - wow. 馃ぁ
Did I offend you? It wasn't my intention. I struggle a little bit with fanboi videos and people who know just enough to be dangerous and suddenly they're experts. I apologize if you took exception to my post.
