Re: [DML] Re: Port and Polish



Second day-
the low end really isn't missing very much from original. It's just a little 
different.
I still have a blast taking off from the line, and running through the gears 
is much more fun.
It will in no way compare to '69 Charger, so don't even try that comparison.

I love the sound standing outside the car, especially behind it showing it 
off to my friends. With the windows down it is very pleasing too. But with 
the windows up it doesn't have the same bassy note and clarity, it's just 
loud.
So, I'll be keeping the windows down until I add some back cabin insulation.
:-)
I think I need to do that anyway, as I've always been plagued with engine 
smells.
I've siliconed some of the rubber wire-harness gromets like the antenna and 
o2 sensor wire.
