No question, engine noise will not be as good. No matter what you do aftermarket, no one can make an I6 turbo sound like a high revving NA V8. It is a done deal.

At this point, I'm looking forward to better performance, updated technology, and new aesthetics. Hopefully that will outweigh what has been lost.
