is it possible...

To have louder sound at idle? Anything specific I could do? I currently have bore stingers axlebacks and happy with them when moving but at idle its a little quiet.

Thanks,

crank up your idle RPMs. not exactly the best thing for the car but thats the only way i know of. other than junkin that cats and maybe some new headers.

Put the idle rpm up isn't bad for the car. If you bring it up to 850 it will be louder and have a steadier idle.

Not sure what changing the idle rpm is but does it have something to do with a tune?

Yes. For example, say it currently idles at 700rpm. The tune would bump that up to 750 or 800rpm. The slightly higher rpm would would be a bit louder.

Yes it's in the tune. If you have a custom tune from any company like MPT or BAMA or Steeda it can easily be done

Yep, it's all "drive by wire now"...no more "gas pedal" with a throttle adjustment.

Install a sound tube from a GT on your car that will pump some sound inside for you..

i turned my idle up to 850 just now. i think its slightly louder but not by much. i talked to BAMA and they said that Idle Neutral and Idle Drive had to be the same. when you go to upload your tune and it gives you the option to change the parameters go to Idle Dri and Idle Neu and select your desired idle speed.then upload the tune.

Yup that's correct. It has a bit better response too since it's at 850 rpm instead of 600.

Thanks,
These guys have all pointed you in the right direction. You can bump your idle up a bit within the tune and it will absolutely be louder at idle and will probably be smoother. I wouldn't go higher than 850 though!

Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! You'll love a Bama custom tune, feel free to hit me up or give the Bama team a call with any questions you may have. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

I'm glad to hear you're enjoying your tune more with your idle set to 850! Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it.

Let me know if you ever have any questions or need some further assistance!

mines the same thing. when it ask you to adjust parameters or some jazz right after you select the tune, hit yes or whatever and scroll down to idle neu and idle drive.

its just more stress on your engine cause its working harder while not doing jack.so going higher is just hurting it.
