The LT1 is making 460 HP and 465 Torque in the C7. So that's why the Z/28 sounds better cause the LS7.
I'm used to hearing V8's. In fact I was out at the speedway today driving in an HPDE event and heard everything from Hondas to Ferraris, Porsches, Lambos and everything in between. There's a throaty, tubular tonal frequency in the Z/28 exhaust that I don't hear elsewhere. It really sounds good. The Z06's and ZR1's at the track today didn't have that sound. Between the tri-y headers and piping, Stielow and team have done something with either the pipe size, crossover, mufflers or something to give it that great tone. Can't wait to actually hear one of these in person.
