2001 Focus and Subaru

Recommended Posts

Great rendering and handling but is the Scooby engine sound a placeholder? Doesn't have the boxer 4 growl. And the Focus, the brake lights don't work if the headlights are switched on. The rear lights are too strong. Other than that, a great addition.

Subaru probably has equal length headers, so it wouldn't sound like a normal subaru.

"Header" is another term for the exhaust manifold. 

Group A cars, early JDM models and many export models (including the UK cars up until mid'00's) used unequal length headers. That is what gives those cars their distinct "burble". 

Equal length headers are better for performance, so the WRCars all utilised equal length headers.

From the WRC seasons i've seen on Youtube, the sound is accurate.

in the online multiplayer (custom championships), if you do not have the new season pass yet and someone selects the <2000cc class, you have access to the Focus but not the Impreza!

I just bought the season 3 and 4 pass on xbox.  Focus and subaru are available in time trial, but not in my garage or my team.  Anyone else with this problem?

I had a Forester STi for a while, it didn't make the standard sound, someone at the garage said the headers were straight/equal hence less rumble but better performance.

Forester STI was a JDM model, so twin-scroll turbo and equal length headers.

Thank you Codemasters for those DLC cars... Sorry, but i have to say i am not satisfied  with the results.

What engine/exhaust sounds comes with the Subaru Impreza???  That is NOT a sound of an Impreza STI


Also trouble with the Focus exhaust sound, which different a lot to a real car's exhaust sounds...
Did you finish already this job?

This parts in the headlights should be painted black instead of chrome

Also you have to check under engine bay the specular map, 'cause that part also shining like mirror

Are you basing your opinion on the sound of a road car or WRCar @mesa

Because i was lucky to drive them both - my opinion is based on real sounds.
