Gallardo

Is it possible to make a Z4M sound like a Lamborghini Gallardo?
:P i'm joking

last night one of those passed me by WOT and the sound was so hot i had an eargasm.

My car sounded like a measle next to the lambo.

yup...... throw around 8lbs of boost at that s54, Super sprint x pipe and RPI gt race cans, this is a euro car so had the catless CSL thinwall headers, this sound is a thing of shear beauty, you can also hear the BPV popping off at the straight in certain clips, i get some lovely flames as well :-)

Nope. I honestly prefer the tone of a catless V10 M5 engine over our Gallardo but the whirl of 2 turbos at low rpms isn't bad either.

it sounds really good and i'm on the way to getting there but it's not like a lamborghini.
The lambo sounds all engine and intake sound without a lot of exhaust I suppose.

This VT2 Z4M sounds all xpipe exhaust with a pinch of rasp.

I hope it's the cam sound quality and it does sound close to a Lambo.

I literally can't wait to supercharge my baby.

Unfortunately it won't happen before a couple of years or more.

by then it should be possible to do stage 3 or something like that.

I'm also worried that no one will be able to do it local, i don't know what i am going to do.

What's a low compression build cost (parts and labor)? And what CR would you go with for 10-12 psi?

Most go with 9:1 compression to run over 530rwhp

After the EURO headers and the RE diablos, my car sounds more exotic than a gallardo, this same guy passed me by the other day and this time around he was amazed by my car's sound :P

Next in line, straight S pipe and Xpipe, maybe with a couple of resonators to tone down the sound.
