      c3 2019 V90 w/ Borla "S" Type muffler

      I've had a few requests for a "sound clip" of the Exhaust mod don on my V90.

      Here goes nothing.... LOL Hope you guys like the video "be gentle it's been a while since I've done a YT video"

      Thanks!
      Yeah between the exhaust and the P* tune... I'm in heaven!

      The drive by didn't quite come out the way I was hoping, but I guess it shows that its not obnoxious, which is what most people (Volvo Owners) think when you say aftermarket exhaust. LOL

      Thanks for sharing and that is thinking out of the box. Only a car fanatic would delve deep and perform this mod.

      Noticed the car seat in video, lucky kid cruises in a cool long roof.

      Thanks for watching and commenting, Yeah the little one makes my wife a little "jelly" (jealous) because she always wants to ride in the "daddy's silver car",
      But the wife can't complain too much, she has a V6 Dodge Journey with an intake and muffler delete with 3" pipes, LOL

      I love the fact that you appreciate the video and "a real mod" although the sound is not your "cup of tea".
      Wish more guys on all forums could share their opinion without trashing the other guys difference of opinion / preference.

      Kudos!

      Actually like the sound as long as not too much ride vibration from the drone. Enjoy the silver long roof with the family.

      Thanks, I made sure we got some footage of the drone inside, which I think is the biggest deterrent for Exhaust mods for most people.

      What's the sputtering when it shifts? Does it cut the ignition for a second to offload the trans or something?

      Are you referring to this?


      Exhaust Burble on Deceleration

      "An exhaust burble, or throaty popping noise which could be likened to a babbling brook, it has a different cause if it only occurs when suddenly backing off on a vehicle's throttle. Essentially, the sudden easing off the throttle causes an immediate decrease in exhaust emissions to the degree that atmospheric pressure surrounding the exhaust pipe pushes cool air up into the exhaust system. This air collides with the warm exhaust gasses and creates a rumbling not unlike thunder. Normally this will only happen if the tailpipe has too wide a diameter to maintain equalized air pressure, or there is a seam in the exhaust pipes which is not air tight."

      You forgot to mention that it is a cool sound (not defective) and most sport cars make a similar "sputtering" sound when shifting and or decelerating.

      Haha noted,
      Obviously I totally love that sound, but since sound or whats cool is so subjective, and I'm obviously a 'black sheep' when it comes to volvo owners
      I just copied and pasted what was here:
      "Exhaust Burble Causes" https://itstillruns.com/exhaust-burb...s-5545351.html

      But yeah you're right, its not an indicator of a defect or something wrong. And yes to me it's totally cool, LOL.

      Thanks for the support!

      I generally like the sound as well. It seems like that burble is the new "in" thing with exhausts. Listen to any of the newer 3-series or AMGs and they all have some form of it going on. You didn't really hear it at all on stock exhausts more than like 5 years ago.
