I am sick of all the Exhaust videos on youtube where the camera is placed on the ground, about a foot from the Exhaust. When was the last time you laid flat on the ground to listen to someone's Exhaust? Not only the ridiculousness of that, but also that the sound overwhelms the stock microphone, leading to audio that is more or less just really loud hissing.
This isn't the best audio clip on the web, as it was taken with the stock microphone in a canon 7D, but it should give a pretty good idea of what the car sounds like stock versus pulling the fuse (a la Mild 2 Wild).

Pull the Fuse on your C6 Corvette's Dual Mode Exhaust
Since the introduction of the dual mode Exhaust on Corvettes back in 2006, owners have
been doing this very simple mod to keep the NPP's butterfly valves open so
they can enjoy that deep Exhaust
rumble all the time. Since it's such a popular and easy mod to do, we
though we would make a quick video about the fuse and then give you a
couple of before and after sounds so you hear the difference.

Corvette C6 Dual-Mode Performance Exhaust Demonstration - Chicago Motor Cars with Chris Moran

Find out how the optional Dual-Mode Exhaust works on the LS3-equipped C6 Corvette.
It's some cool technology...and then check out the 2012 Corvette Grand
Sport on our website...www.ChicagoMotorCars.com
Here's what Edmunds says about the C6 Corvette:
We have driven many, many Corvettes over the years, from bone-stock
automatics to the absurdly endowed ZR1 to Ron Fellows' C5-R GT1 racecar,
and it occurs to us that rarely have we ever pined for more power in
Chevrolet's plastic fantastic.
All this occurred to us as we were driving the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport
Coupe on GM's road course at its Milford proving grounds in southeastern
Michigan. And, you know, despite the endless flood of headlines about the
hairy-beast Z06 and the stupid-fast ZR1, the standard Vette's 436-horsepower LS3 V8 still gets
the job done.
This is because 436 hp is still a big mess o' horsepower (or 430 hp
without the trick, two-mode Exhaust
flaps that are optional), and also because the Corvette remains trim in an
increasingly obese world, since the Grand Sport coupe weighs in at 3,311
With a little help from its fatter-than-standard tires (275/35R18s up front
and 325/30R19s out back), a Grand Sport will scamper to 60 mph about a
tenth of a second or so quicker than the last standard Corvette we tested
— a coupe which got to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds (4.0 seconds with 1 foot of
rollout like on a drag strip). And we reckon the tires will also help us
pick up a little in max lateral grip compared to the last '09 we tested
with its standard 245/40R18 front and 285/35R19 rear items — figure
around 0.98g. We'd also expect the fat tires to chop at least a few feet
off of that car's 60-0 braking distance of 110 feet.
And you could live with this performance, couldn't you?
We've yet to meet the human who can feel the difference between 3.9 seconds
and 4.0 seconds to 60 mph. It's an academic exercise, really. But the 2010
Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, which goes on sale this fall alongside the
rest of the 2010 Corvettes, represents more than just a miniscule
improvement in acceleration. After all, even the nuttiest Corvette nut
might have a hard time swallowing the $5,840 premium the Grand Sport coupe
commands over the standard coupe for a tenth-of-a-second here and a
The Grand Sport represents a bridge between the $49,880 standard Corvette
and the Corvette Z06, which starts at $75,235. The Grand Sport coupe's
price, which starts at $55,720, is nearer that of the standard car since it
is constructed with steel frame rails instead of the Z06's pricier aluminum
and also makes do with conventional fiberglass body panels instead of the
carbon-fiber front fenders of the Z06. And let's not forget that the Z06's
505-hp 7.0-liter V8 is a very pricey hand-built thing.
In years past, the only bridge vehicle between the standard Vette and the
serious nut-ball performance version has been the Z51-code car, which the
Grand Sport replaces. And the current C6 version of the Z51 came with not
just a stiffer suspension as in years past but also slightly larger brakes
with drilled rotors, as well as shorter gearing for the first three slots
of the six-speed manual transmission. But, let's face it; the Z51 still
looked the same to all but the most Corvette-obsessed eyes.
With its Z06-style, wide-body fender flares and Z06-style front fascia and
rear brake cooling ducts and the little mail-slot air inlet just forward of
the hood, the Grand Sport is easily identified as something else. You might
mistake it for a Z06, or a standard Corvette owned by a guy who added some
Z06-style parts to the bodywork, but you won't mistake it for the
run-of-the-mill coupe. Corvette people have been trained to identify models
and model years by the trim on the front fender gills, and so the Grand
Sport adds a new gill style for their inventory: two vertical body-color
pieces connected at the top by a horizontal chrome strip with "Grand Sport"
script molded in.
Let's deal with the name right now. Grand Sport is simply one of those
monikers that sits around in the Corvette history books. But the now-three
vehicles that have carried the name have so little in common, the name is
almost meaningless. The original Grand Sport was Zora Arkus-Duntov's
factory-engineered 1963 Corvette Sting Ray racer. It might have been just
about the meanest and therefore coolest-looking road racer of the day, but
ultimately the program never really took off as planned. The second Grand
Sport was a special-edition 1996 Vette C4 with an LT4 motor, big wheels and
tires and two silly red hash marks on the front fender.
2011 Corvette Z06 Enhancements
The big news coming out of the Corvette Museum's C5/C6 Bash is the
enhancements made to the 2011 Z06. The 2011 Corvette Z06 features new
tires from Goodyear, an aggressive dual mode Exhaust tune, as well as the aforementioned Z07
performance package featuring the Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and the CFZ
Carbon Fiber appearance package. Corvette Chief Engineer takes us through
the enhancements at the 2010 Corvette Museum's C5/C6 Bash.

A nice review and drive in a C5 Corvette with the LS1 engine. Lots of power
