Can anyone clue me in as to what makes this sound?? I installed the crower stg 2's and AEM CAI at the same time a while back.

Its gotta be either the AEM or the cams, but at like 6500rpm my car sounds like its hittin Vtec.


BTW.... I know there is no such thing as Ztec. but thats what me and a few of my friends started calling it when it would make this sound.

Hey Carlos you have the magnaflow now right?

I am pretty sure thats what it is...my car had a huge resonance 6500+ with the Cool-Flo intake. The sound would be so loud and just coming from everywhere and what was with stock header/cat.

Yeah I got the Magnaflow now, but the sound comes from the engine area.

Mine did the same sound until I put the Ranger Maf. Is the sound of the engine leaning at the top.

i never knew ZeTec "kicked in"
isnt this a property unique to honda and their vtec?

please correct me if I am wrong... I never quite knew what "ZeTec" was... 2 years ago when i first bought the car, I THOUGHT it was fords version of vtec, but i was told shortly after buying the car it has nothing to do w/ the change-up like in vtec? What exactly is ZETEC?

any clarification will be more than welcome

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">These guys were just saying they could here a VTEC "like" phenomenon at a certain RPM... They weren't actually talking about a real Zetec "spot" or anything.

Zetec is just a name like Ecotec, Vortec, Power Tech, or Magnum. It isn't a mechanical cam changeover like VTEC or VVTLi

There is no such thing. Its just my play on the word "Vtec"

Zetec is just the name of the engine. Zetec doesnt kick in, but with what has been said, with the AEM CAI it "sounds" just like when Vtec kicks in on Honduhs

EDIT: damn, Omni beat me to the punch
