Pretty sure there was a car with a cam and headers idling out of the picture at the end of the video of the black/white camo ZL1.

Nice none the less.

Well, i kind of get it! I too am not fully satisfied with the sound of the exhaust in those videos. I would like a deeper rumble rather than the high pitched raspy barking! Also the misfires just dont sound quite right... maybe it's just because the engine is cold, who knows!

I like this recording a lot better thats how it hopefully will sound! (would be great if someone could embed the video)

It's hollow and raspy and sounds weak to me.

I would not judge it off of the recordings.... cameras can do goofy things to sound. Im sure this is one area GM would not over look.

Hopefully, but honestly who keeps stock exhaust anyways? A car like that begs for a sweet aftermarket set up!

I'll be keeping it until the aftermarket makes a dual mode system. I don't want to lose that functionality. BB exhaust makes a dual mode system for the Z06, so I'm hoping they and other companies do the same for the ZL1.

Is the exhaust popping due to a lean condition?

No, when the throttle is closed there is no fuel spraying in to the cyls and that's just the left over burning off on over rev. No big deal.

I wouldn't expect the production version to sound quite that good though. I doubt it'll pass EPA noise abatement testing with that setup.

The ZL1 looks like it's gonna be a great package. I wish they could do something to clean up those hoses coming out the front of the engine cover. That looks terrible.

It's my opinion the crackles are from the engine being cold and not up to operating temperatures. I know my '02 would pop and fart through the LTs and CB when cold, and bet all that goes away after evering thing's warmed up.

Thats one of the first things I will change is to clean up the engine bay.
The current way it looks , so thats gotta change, unless they
clean it up before final production.

The engine sounds awesome in person, my wife and I really enjoyed hearing it.

A couple of those are intercooler hoses, so I'm sure finding some alternative wouldn't be hard to do. I agree that something should be done to clean those up.

IF we do a resonator delete on the ZL1, would it effect the dual-mode exhaust function?

Sounds like crap when there is no load on the engine.

Exhaust sounds from ZL1 track videos are so much sweeter to my ears.
