Default Loudness

I started my baby yesterday for the first time and the sound this thing makes is incredible. Videos dont do it justice.

I dont know the car yet but just basic cold start and tapping the throttle gently to 1200 rpm produced a very very VERY loud noise. Is this the “quiet” mode or somehow the car starts in the aggressive mode? i cant imagine this being the quiet mode!

Before you say anything, I do come from shelby gt350 with a ford performance full exhaust that is 115db and wont pass many race tracks so its not like I dont know what loud is but my gt350 is quiet when flaps are closed in normal mode.

You should hear it after you add headers and an xpipe. It’s much more aggressive!

There is a stealth mode in engine management under setting on the big screen, that will make the least sound

So, I want to be sure I have this correct. After all of the bashing you did about what a joke the car is; it's too heavy, too slow, and us owners were just drinking GM's Kool-Aid,,,you bought a C7 ZR1? I'm sure I'm not the only one here given your previous posts, that is interested to see pics of your new ZR1 and understand what changed your mind. Post-up some pics and give us some details, so we can officially welcome you aboard. Which version did you go with? Where did you get it? Which number did you get? What are your impressions?

I believe what you are experiencing is that when you first start a "cold" car I believe the cam timing is retarded and as the car warms (less than a minute) the cam advances and the exhaust note changes (gets quieter).

lol

I will post a picture of my car next to my other car. Because even if I posted the picture of zr1, you guys would say its someone else’s car.

Listen, I usually have a very thick skin but these past few days have been very stressful and upsetting me so I have neither the patience nor energy to just play along with these comments. You dont have to believe I have a car. I have nothing the gain by convincing you and nothing to lose by not convincing you.

I m going to watch a movie and try to relax and not think about the car problems.
