    Was it a deposit or a withdrawal?

    Nice sound, but now I have a crick in my neck.

    When you coasted towards that cross street I thought for a second third gear had gone missing

    Sounds an awful lot like my 93... so I guess that's good.

    Anyway, one question: At 3:43, on deceleration, you get that 'rattle'/'popping' on deceleration. I do too. Why? What causes this sound?
    The first few times mine did it, I was concerned about it(something loose in the valve train?) but it seems to be more normal, especially with a straight-pipe exhaust.

    I've also heard it on a few hot rod gas motors, probably for the same reason?

    Any ideas on why a motor does this?


    Secondly, I'm going to have to do this to mine and see if I'm smoking the same way you are on acceleration. I know that I /can/ make mine smoke off idle with too much throttle, but I've got a 'smoke puff limiter' to reduce that and (hopefully) prevent much of any smoke in normal driving.
    Looking out my mirrors, I don't see any, except in very specific circumstances(namely flooring it up a hill till I get boost), but I'm not sure if it would be more visible with a gopro.

    3:43, im down shifting into 2nd.
    in my experience, its the "drone" of the exhaust.
    any internal combustion engine will do this,
    in the custom world we call it wrap.
    cruising down a grade, with a old school 235, 2" exhaust, decelling...
    brtttttttttttttttttt.
    sounds quite amazing when you have a 6 or 7 strong convoy,
    all doing this through the Caldecott tunnel!

    im sure its not the best for your cylinder walls and pistons, but I beat mine like a red headed stepchild anyway.
    it just the sound you make with no muffler and decelerating in gear.

    I only really smoke when im not under boost, the 093 cleans it up pretty well

    Looks like a mile to the side mirror from that angle.
