I completly understand, most cameras, hell most pure video cameras have pretty crappy microphones. Also I'm a filmmaker with a direction towards the technical bit so I obsess over this kind of stuff, lol.

Scott, good to hear that the manual V8 will sound even meaner

No, it will not have the butterfly valves like the Z06 has.

My WS6 with a stock cam sounds like this during a cold start but I could be wrong about the Camaro, it might have an upgraded cam in this video.

Glad to hear that Fbodfather. I thought the exhaust note in the video sounded shitty; a bit on the tinny side. Homemade vids rarely do justice to the aural quality of a car.

This may have been covered before ,but can the AFM be tuned out? Also has there been any of GM motors V8s with AFM that has had spring and cam swap that takes kindly to other mods. I guess I'm wanting my cake and eating it to. I need to get the auto to meet the wife half way on my wants.

Gotcha, I saw the vid where Scott was talking about the exhaust and the AFM in the background. This one sounded better.

Did anyone think that maybe because this is the L99 (6A) that the AFM was what was causing the 'loping'?

In my experience, cylinder deactivation kicks in only when coasting, so I think whenever you punch it you'll hear the L99 growl. At least I hope so.

I didn't want to comment too much on this till Scott had his say, but yes I think so. It was pretty quiet in person, and it had a bit of a flutter to the idle. I'm curious tho after his comment about AFM how aftermarket exhaust will sound on the auto car. I also pretty much ignored the sound, since that isn't the production exhaust anyhow.

That's right! overheard mustang driver to his passenger, "That MAro sounds like crap let's kick his a$nevermind he's too far ahead.

Sounds just like it is - an LS3 without a tuned exhaust. Similar to a Vette, but with the ECM idle issues and unoptimized tuning. Just judging by what a tuned LS3 Vette sounds like now, this thing WILL sound much MEANER once tuned.

Stay frosty, people! You ain't heard NOTHIN yet!!!

(Corsa + cat-back + headers = )

One example - and this wasn't "ballz-out" -- but still sounds schweet:
