who thinks there first gen sounds better than there buddies second gens? all my buddies with second gens say my first sounds amazing when i pass. they say the intake howl is worth a cigarette. i agree. i belive the carborators, along with smaller airboxes make for a throatier sound.

They have different cams as well - bigger on the 2nd gen. I did a cam swap on my 1st gen: 2nd gen intakes on intake, 1st gen intakes on exhaust. The sound changed significantly with that.

There's a lot too it. My 1st gen had more of a raspy growl and my 2nd gen has a silky smooth growl.

I'm rebuilding engine for 2000 with cam swap and some other goodies, so it'll sound different in a few weeks. :D. Depends mostly on what pipe is mounted. Full micron sys on 2000 and yosh slip on for 2006.
