You can't beat the sound of a V8 regardless of what car it's in!!, still prefer the Mustang Cobra!

I hope the new 24 valve and the 32 valve 5.4L sound good. From what I heard of the 4.6L 32 Valve they should..

Wonder how high they will rev? 6000? 6500? 7000?

I distinctly hear the LS1 vacuum cleaner sound at the 29 second mark as the car goes past. Now, if you want real sound go and try the Tickford 220s for a start!

The Gen 3 V8s sound like a vacuum cleaner. Makes you wonder weather they come with Hoover Headers or Electrolux Extractors. The Tickford enhanced 302s sound pretty fair for a factory V8.

They sound even better when you go to 347 and open up the heads a bit. I did a Marcos Ambrose with the seatbelt this morning when I gave the beastie a bit of a stir through the esses at Sylvania here in Sydney - what a sound!

Man that didn't impress me at all, I can tell you now after hearing a new Cobra the 4.6 eats the LS1 for a pure V8 sound.
You have to say that Ford V8's have always sounded great.:D
