comment 1991 ford explorer 4x4 metal screeching
More likely something with the brakes, not sure if the are disk or drum on that, but could be a rock in there or no pad material left...

I'd also like to hear how Horsepower and Torque are measured as separate figures, during one run.

comment Ferrari 3.0L V8 - muffler positioning, and x-flow for specific sound
What i was thinking was the amount of pipe AFTER the silencer could affect the sound as it becomes a resonance stack. Thats true there is no measurement for noise during an MOT, my mini was FAR to loud (for me) on its last mot but passed.

Its OK Allan no offence intended or received :-) just not a term ive heard before. its not so much louder that i am after, its more to sould like a later model which has the same engine - harsher, rather than louder.

Yes the engine's good :-) I have yes - I had the top off the box to have a look inside and its certainly nothing special - minimally restrictive, but not a piece of art! I'll post some photos soon.

Well Allan you have only been a member for 11 days, don't just assume everyone has no clue (however i have no idea what you mean by 'Bomb out', some semi-insulting Americanism?). The first part of your answer is completely irrelevant. I get the impression you are just here trying to build rep. Do you actually have any in-depth knowledge of exhaust design?

errm, well thanks for your time, but you have in no way answered my question... indeed the first part (well most) of your answer is completely irrelevant.
