Thanks for the share, I really look forward to seeing this car.

I do hope they made equal length headers on this one, and from the only three short revs in the video, I could not tell, although I doubt they did this.
Honestly I've grown more away from the traditional burble from 180 degree crank V8s that is even retained in high revving Japanese motors.
Most of us have heard the ISF with equal length headers on youtube, but I recently found a gentleman overseas who did EL on a 1UZFE. He has numerous clips with one even comparing the same motor with and without the headers. I'll place the link below.
Yes the ISF, RCF, and GSF motors sound good, but there are some harmonics that just aren't there for me.

I always wondered why I fell in love with the Aston Martin and Maserati V8 sounds. The Aston was a modified Jaguar motor called the AJ37, and the Maserati is a Ferrari-Constructed engine called the F136, but both were cross planes that sounded almost 3/4 flat plane. Although both rev to around 7500 like the ISF and others do, guess what I found out the difference was? Equal length headers. Not perfectly equal on purpose, but much closer than the highly asymetrical ones found on most V8s. For example, like on the previous M5's V10, all four tubes are the same pitch, with the fifth being just slightly longer for a tad of character. The LFA's V10 has 10 individual throttle bodies, as well as EL headers. The previous V8 M3 had EL as well.
