Camaro Exhaust Note Tuning Process

Posted by: admin In: Main ()

By all accounts we’ve heard so far of the 2010 Camaro’s exhaust, it sounds terrific! Ever wonder how the exhaust note is fine tuned and decided upon? Here is some interesting info on the process from Andrew Holmes, the Camaro program’s engineering manager.

“The process, like all of those that we do with GM Engineering, is reasonably simple but very complex. First, we identify a number of vehicles (some are usually competitors’ vehicles and some of our own product) that we think sound good. We measure them with a tool affectionately known here in Melbourne as "Helmut." It is a very sensitive set of microphones attached in a facsimile of a human head that is carefully calibrated to accurately simulate the human hearing spectrum.”
