Engine and exhaust noise over speakers?
I've seen this posted several times, (maybe always by the same person?) The statement that FORD pipes exhaust notes and engine noise over the speaker system even when the radio is off, in order to enhance the "Feel" of the car. Can anyone confirm or deny this for sure? I know some of the models had a "SOUND TUBE" that transmitted intake noise to the compartment, but this was simply a hollow tube that lead from the engine to the passenger compartment right under the instrument cluster. The fact was the new chassis was so stiff that engine noise was not being transmitted to the driver, marketing thought it was a great idea! However, every aftermarket cold air kit, intercooler, turbo swap, blower kit deletes the tube first off!
So can someone cut and paste from a shop manual or owners manual or even a FORD print add somewhere that the sound comes over the speakers!
