I would guess you would be WAY behind, to far to hear a C7 under full acceleration with anything you own. Yes, it does not sound like a big block because it's not a big block, it sounds more like it's singing after about 4,000 RPM and just keeps on going. Not sure I have the hair on my balls to let this thing out like the older Corvettes I've had, was very comfortable in the C5 and even the C6 but not there yet with this C7. Not scary like the '61 but it gets there so much faster and without the road feel of the older Corvettes.

The main reason Corvettes sound so anemic is because of cabin resonanace.
Testing in a C5 showed peaks at 1100 and 2200 RPM, right in the heart of the
cruising range. Later versions are probably about the same.

If these frequencies are not filtered out, the cabin becomes a giant
low-frequency echo chamber. After filtering, the result is the tinny, non
big-block, non-muscle car tone you hear.

My 69 BB with tripower and sidepipes was scary. At part throttle it was
wimpy. Likely why I sold it and kept my 327 '64.

Never had that problem the C5s I had with Corsa exhausts and if you were at 2,200 RPM very much you couldn't afford the tickets.
