DHS Exhaust Sound Off I - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic + 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth + Lots of Beans - Videos

Beans. Long and green. Round and brown. Fresh, frozen, dried or straight of the can. Good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you F#%T.

“Drive…He Said”  is asking readers which of these two turbocharged 1.4L gas engined hatchbacks sounds like it ate more BEANS?:

– The  2013 FIAT 500 Abarth , with Essesse resonator:


– Or  the  2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT  with Borla stainless steel muffler

Which would you tolerate more as a next door neighbor?

It used to be that “phony” vociferous exhaust was the bluff of low-performance tuner imports. But with the current trend towards low cylinder count/ small displacement performance cars, “Fart Can” exhaust is making a comeback.

The remaining challenge to exhaust engineers: Complying with local ordinance 75 foot noise rules.
