The only thing I ever liked about the Mustang was it's great exhaust sound

There's no way I will be able to afford a SS, will be going with a 2LT. After hearing how the SS sounds I don't know if I will be totally satisfied with the LT, so I'm hoping their pitch has changed...
Can anybody lend me some info?

No not a recent one that I know of. However, the exhaust tone of the RS Camaro driven by ED Welburn during the Web unveiling sounded very close to a V8 when it drove by both times. The video is out there somewhere.

I wish I had the kind of money to throw around to add internal engine components just for their effect on the exhaust tone!

sounds pretty good... not as good as I expected but it might be just the camera, or that I just was driving next to a ferarri on the freeway and now I am comparing lol

still probably gonna put on a corsa exhaust for that extra rumble

The SRT8 sounds so better seriously, is that the best GM could do with the stock exhaust, can't wait for aftermarket

Very cool... Thanks for the vids. I can't really hear the exhaust because the laptop's speakers are not that great but everyone should remember to not judge the sound until you hear it in person...

Wow that sounds mean as hell!!! I dont think it sounds as good as a Mustang or Challenger. They probably didnt finish tuning the exhaust. Does anyone know it they did?

lol....good to meet ya brother! Trust me I know the video doesn't do it justice...I've heard all the sound clips from the Indy start up and and the other youtube vids out there, but hearing it in person is really what will seal the deal for everyone. I was very impressed with the car through and through.

So I've always loved the old 5.0 mustang w/flowmasters sound but I can honestly say that the Camaro is by far a nicer note. Personally I haven't heard the Challenger srt8/rt running so I couldn't tell ya. I wasn't impressed with the Challenger because I really think they only took it half way- retro'd the outside and threw the interior of a late model charger in a 2 door.

As for the Camaro, I like the tone, nice low rumble and growl when you throttle it. Honestly- they did a great job.

I agree with everyone else that I can't wait to hear it when you put a load on it. I hope that another member catches up with Heather or another test car and gets this on video to post (something like the v6 post from earlier today would be awesome)

I hear more background noise then engine or exhaust sound. Thanks for the video, but, I don't think it does justice to what we are really going to get/hear.

Ok, now we need heatherR and her husband to take note of the new video of the V6. That is the type of audio and video file we want to see and hear from the SS cars.
