|Noise from three Mustang V6 configurations|
Original recordings .MOV files from Panasonic LUMIX LX1
were pretty big (100+MB) so QuickTime reduced them, and transformed one to .AVI
The camera (and microphone) were in the exact same
location for all recordings: I neglected to zoom in for the
"OPEN" segment. If the visual bothers your hearing,
close your eyes ...
Fototime offer an option to translate and play in their video format, or to download status quo (16-20MB)
Three short videos stacked end-to-end, juSt a few seconds long.
The MP4 file (fourth in order) is manipulated so you can hear repeats without mousing.
ALL THREE FILES CONTAIN THE SAME MATERIAL
First is the standard V6 exhaust (sounds pretty good to me)
Second is the Ford Racing Products GT muffler (right side) (duh)
I was worried that it might be too loud, but it seems to me to be
about the same as the standard one, but with a lower tone and less of a "lisp",
although that may be an artifact of recording level compression;
a road test seemed to confirm my impression.
Third is open exhaust from the muffler connection; not a long clip,
since the loudness startled me. I think it sounds best of all ...
I'm delighted with the FRPP and believe it has the best single muffled V6 sound
I've heard (can you say "cognitive dissonance"? Not!)
I trimmed the fun part: at the beginning of the FRPP segment,
starting the engine blew a fistful of styrofoam packing "peanuts"
all over the driveway!
