    I think a lot of it comes down to firing order.

    There has been a lot of exciting car talk this week on Beyond.. Bit of surprise.

    And most of it has been for GM products..

    I think it's pretty awesome all in all. But not "watch a 26 minute video" awesome.

    I have no idea why Devin Booker was in the video and I'm curious as to how many people (here) actually know who that is

    I have been thinking the same thing... but unfortunately I think this engine is going to be VERY expensive. Every piece of the internals from the 8 forged titanium connecting rods to the hollow camshafts looks like $$$$.

    100% agree, also the intake looks massive to fit in a front engine vehicle.. i'm sure someone will make a lowpro, but still it will all be big money lol.

    Back on topic - One thing I find interesting is how the Mustang GT350 sounds like a bit of a refined regular V8, but this engine sounds way more like an exotic. Is it all exhaust tuning for the difference in sounds I wonder?
    The headers on the 350 and exhaust were tuned to make it more “American”.

    Firing order and lastly the single intake manifold and single throttle body finished the hybrid sound.

    The corvette’s pure sound comes from twin intakes, throttle, and the very traditional firing order.

    It's all up n the air, 2jz, RB, LS/LT.. still deciding. Chester suggested a NA 2JZ with a turbo kit.. seems way cheaper than a GTE, RB26's are insane price.. LS would be the most budget friendly i think? Told the wife i'd keep this within a budget unlike the camaro.. haha

    anyways, this car sounds awesome. hate the wing. apparently the LT7 motor is going to be a twin turbo'd LT6? for the ZR1, that sounds neat, look forward to hearing more about that.

    Great article on some of the engine tech. This LT6 is super whiz-bang!

    They talk about in a video how they designed the exhaust tips to point back towards the driver because it was too quiet when driving.

    5 cams. I feel you don't want to be the guy caught with the repair bill on this. Probably could have gone camless for cheaper.

    Also their cooling methods, and complicated. Almost like the engineers didn't even look at how the other mid or rear engine cars manage it.

    I wasnt talking about decibels, i meant the sound it makes. GT350 is a classic v8 howl with an exotic touch. This is pure exotic. Like it was mentioned above, mostly due to firing order i believe
