I totaly don't think that this is worth it. Who cares about the awesome sound when you will never be able to hear it? All you are going to hear is car alarms going off for a 6 mile radius wherever you drive!

Awesome sound, completely unprepared for that!

We were just anxious to fire up the motor. So it was on open headers. The completed vehicle will have a full exhaust system and it will sound very nice but not too loud.

Brand spankin new Corsa exhaust and the VERY FIRST time I jumped on it to check out the new sound... BUSTED...
It could have been much worse you would have lost your license for 90 days in PA if he wrote you up for 95 in a 70!! Even worse you could have been driving a FORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

That ****er is too damn loud. The ZR-1 does not even sound that loud. The power should be decent though.

It sounded absolutely amazing. It must be a blast to drive such a car.

Wasn't there a story on the front page a while back saying how some GM engineer put an LSA (I think it was the LSA) into a Camaro, too? What is the performance difference between the two?

And, a six-figure bottom line.

I ask you, although the LS9 in a Camaro is WICKED, are you ready to ponder the 10K-12K price point difference between this car and a legit ZR1 Corvette?

Can you spend $105,000 on a Camaro? That is one TOUGH call, my friends.

For real. And a legit buzz kill. :(

Sigh.

Hopefully I wont join the "Banned Camp" for this realization. For the price-point, I'd rather have a stock ZR1.

The "real" Camaro Z should have an LS7 with N/A horsepower. Some tuners have raised the bar with about 700-800 NA HP.

THAT is the "real" Z28 in my book. And,it would cost about $30K-$40K less than an LS9. And, it would have about 100 HP more at the crank. AND better 1/4 mile times due to the insane amount of torque.

With all that said, that LS9 sounds.... SICK!! Great job, Hennessy!!! <cheers!!>
