Supercharger Whine

Sorry if this has been asked before but I cant find a straight answer anywhere... Im just wondering how I can make the supercharger whine louder, without putting in a k&n or any other type of aftermarket filter?

yea you wont be able to do that. you can just take out your filter and it will whine but i dont recommend that at all.

Try the Injen CAI instead. I ordered that one because they are supposed to have tuned them so it doesn't run lean. I'll let you know if it ever comes in.

LOL WTF? who told you that? More air never causes you to loose power.

Try removing the hood blanket. You can try this, no gaurantee that it will work, but it did work on my 03 cobra. Plus you can put it back if you don't like it. As far as I can tell, people have given 3 purposes to having the hood blanket on:
1) making the car quieter
2) on my cobra there is a very small interference with the AM radio under acceleration (I guess the spark plugs or ignition sends off some AM frequencys)
3) not allowing the hood to heat up thus preserving the life of the paint. People seem to debate this one, because for the few people who had negative results, it took 3 or more years to happen. This 4 cylinder probably doesn't get as hot as the 03 cobra engine, and it's been fine for me for 2 years.

If you try this, let us know. I would want to do this, but its freakin cold out right now, so I'm not doing it unless I know you can hear the difference.

actually.. the hood blanket is kind of important.. an added safety feature that most people dont realize.. the plastic pieces that are holding the blanket on will melt incase of an engive fire.. dropping the "blanket" on to the engive, smothering the fire.. smart idea, but not nessassarly needed.. but to my knolege.. that is the reason for the hood blanket.

PaulSS is right, that is also another reason the hood blanket is installed, but the other reasons previously stated are also important,
but i find it very unlikely that my engine will ever catch fire.
but i too would like the whine to be loader and would be very interested to see what would happen!
