[doc] Re: #2727 Twin Turbo Progress

Hello Martin,

Really nice job...
Does this engine runs with this exhausts setup ?
Is it not too noisy without silencer ? I know that turbos reduce it
but it must be very loud...

Could you record a little video with a stock car and this one side by
side to compare engine sound differences ?

Best regards,
