    HA!! Dude you made me laugh so hard with that info......that must of been so funny watching the attendant jump!

    Yeah......I guess these days it's almost impossible to have a "distinct" exhaust sound on our cars......I just felt the rasp "kinda" get's old. It was enough for me to go High-Flow catting........thanks for the reply.

    Yes it's still a 346. Thank you, thank you thank you for not saying it's a 350. I hate it when people say that. The LS1 is such a different motor than the 350!

    It was. I would back in so I could see him in the side view mirror. Sometimes he would tell me that my car startled him. I was like, oh, sorry. LOL!

    I agree. Gives me ideas, only starring my own car, even tho it *only* makes 335 HP! It'd sure be nice if I had duals, they sound sexy.

    When I started it the four people in the garage including myself jump for the sky. It sounds great but it's really raspy under load it still needs to be tuned and that will happen after I put the first 500 on the clutch

    I got a little smiley carried away.




    Anyone have a bigger cubed motor? If so, how big, and are you trying to keep it quiet?
