I think that the note has a lot to do with the exhaust setup, how many cats, etc, etc. I ahve a borla hush on mine wiht no cats, and at WOT or shifting through the curvies, it sounds a lot like some of the old aston-martin (think old james bond movies). I had a friend in the car, and he told me it reminded him of the sound of some of the car chases in the old connery/moore bond flicks. But also, other exhaust are going to affect the note as well. I guess its somewhat affected by everyone's perceptions. and either way, the only thing that sounds better to me than the scoob is my friend's supra.
