Talking superloud horns?

My stock horns are shot. One tone never worked, and the other sounds like a dying duck now. I was going to just order the stock replacements from Pelican for $16 (each tone), but then I started thinking about louder horns. There are some interesting options out there. Griots sells, for $40, an all-in-one superloud 130dB airhorn. Sounds nice. Would this require special installation? Is this just stupid?

I just want the ability to pierce ears and cause people to involuntarily pee.

Yeah- sorry about that. I was away for awhile, forgot to logout, let alone turn off the computer.

BTW- I passed inspection, even with my sad ass little horn. I think the young guy that did the inspection dug the car and gave me a break.

I also heard a high dB horn gives me 3-4 HP

Yes, it's true, each dB over 110dB will give you 1HP..

If you add a series of chrome mirrors to the wing it will increase the effects of the turbo

And a set of furry dice will improve the handling

It won't increase your horsepower but if you mount them backwards, the air pressure will add to your mph speed.

Get the lower tone ones that make people involuntarily move their bowels, too. For balance, ya' know.
