    Default BRE 240Z on YouTube - bad ass

    I saw a video on YouTube that I think is Ron Carter's BRE-Z replica? If so, what is under the hood that made it sound like that?

    If you guys are a fan of "Victory By Design", you are familiar with the awesome roar from the historic cars Alain de Cadenet wrings around. I swear, if I closed my eyes, that BRE-Z sounded exactly the same.

    My stock Z sounds like crap in comparison - my E-Type sounds so much cooler, but pales next the BRE-Z!

    This thread is useless without information that makes your car sound like that!

    Default I guess I should chime in here

    So to make your Z sound like that you need the following:

    triple Mikuni 44's with a 2.4 liter motor with an 11lb fly wheel, with 12.5:1 compression, Z-196 cam and a heavily modified Slover race head...

    Feed that into a custom fabricated BRE race header and 2.5" dual exhaust to two custom built bright yellow megaphones and....

    You too will have a Z that is so loud that it will wake the dead

    PS the second video shown is not my BRE Z, it is Phil Mendelovitz's 240Z.

    Ron,

    I previously owned 4 Harleys, all with drag pipes, so I have no issue with raising the dead!!! Thanks for the info!

    Oh, and this is my favorite Alain de Cadenet narration:

    Be aware that Alain, and others use some colorful language at the end of this video clip.
