Air Horn !

Hey all, I installed one of these air horns yesterday!

Holy cow it's loud, I think I lost a filling when I tested it.
I can't wait to try it out on the first SUV driving, cell phone yappin, tunnel visioned soccer mom that pulls in front of me or cuts me off.

I've already installed it. It sounds angry. I just haven't gotten out on the road with it yet.

Installation was easy, but I had to put in a relay since the stock horn wiring didn't have enough juice to push it.

I got to try it out this afternoon!! The guy I honked at (he deserved it), I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his head! LOL

It is the best $40 I've spent in a long time...

Actually that is pretty close to what it sounds like... But I'll try to get out today and get some video and sound clips.

It was raining today, I didn't even go outside today... Hopefully the weather will let up and I'll get out to take some video.
