[V8] Exhaust note

To tell the truth, I usually don't want to hear the exhaust noise on  
any car that I have to drive for more than 30 seconds. Induction  
noise on the other hand - there is nothing like the wild scream these  
engines make with an un-muffled intake.  I am sure you could suck  
squirrels right out of the trees at 6K RPM.  Even better than taking  
the air cleaner off Dads 1968 GMC pickup when I was a kid.  Boy -  
that brings back memories. Like commonly going through 10 gallons of  
gas in one night. I have to admit, a 327 with a Rochester "quadrapig"  
carb and "three on the tree" transmission was almost all you needed  
for some big fun!! (just add beer and girl, or just beer)

Last summer when I rebuilt my motor, I did take it out for a short  
drive with just the headers and no air cleaner.  The neighbors  
weren't that impressed but I sure had fun :-)
