Engine Sounds Like a Harley

My 1.5 L civic engine sounds like its a harley. Aside from the exhaust being separated from the catcon, i believe it is due to timing. Anyone know anything about timing and tuning?

you need a very tuned ear to hear when the timing is off.

It sounds like a harley because of what andrew said... no exhaust.
