I've yet to see a sound clip that can be reproduced properly.

Anyway, I used to run a 292 comp cam in a small block back in the 90's. They sound really good.
I know thats no help.
Sorry

Greetings,

I've tried to no avail to get the sound of my car in a decent audio clip. I'm running the Comp Cams 292H Magnum in mine and you can hear each cylinder fire...I love it. It idles between 600-700rpm in gear about 900rpm in park.

Jason

Had that cam in a 350 with 041 2.02 heads, Victor intake, Holley 650, cheap headers and only a 2.25 exhaust through some cheapie turbo mufflers. STILL sounded great. I even had the Rhodes lifters (variable duration). Sounded awesome still.

I know its not a sound clip, just my opinion. I thought it was fine. I had a tape of me doing a great burnout in it. If I can find that tape, I post it for you so you can hear it. Don't know how much that would help, but I can always try!!

Later

There's no way a clip can reproduce the sound a cam will make in YOUR engine-there are so many variables as to exhaust size, style, headers or manifolds, compression ratio, engine size........... I've listened to a few of those exhaust clips and none of them sounded like any car I've ever seen!

I have ran that cam in 3 BBC's. I just love it, very good responce, good vacuum, well good enough.. and sounds great on top of that!
As for the sound, to me all 3 were very close. One was a 396-one a 402 and this one a 468. The side pipe headers on this just make the sound deeper, as for the idle, they are all almost identical.
Bowtie... there are alot of things that change the sound, but as for this one, 3 different engines and they all sounded great.
Here is my Fathers roadster with this cam, If I can find the other sound clip I have of the 402, I'll post it, it was uncaped.
Right here

I used to run that cam in my 400's in my Firebirds. The point in that clip when the roadster is coming back and just as he's getting ready to turn into the drive way and he's off the gas, that's what my engines sounded like at idle. I'd idle around 850rpm's in gear and it sounded great. This was in a 10:1 engine.

Here is the other clip, 1992 in my Trans Am baby
This is a 396-375 motor, at least the block,crank and pistons. I put open chambered heads on it.
I did this uncapped, that damn gear drive, with the mufflers on it, couldn't hear anything. Quiet gear drive from there on out.
