I don't think one is limited to when they can put cams in. He doesn't need to get an aggressive cut such as race cams, but he could get a little milder cut to achieve the loping sound he wants, and it would give him some noticeable power as well. Naturally! So whether you're stock or a 10 second car... I don't think it would really matter?

If your looking for the muscle car sound get the hooker axle backs. I have them and they were designed to give that sound. Now, they are not the loudest ive heard but they kind of holler like a nextel cup car when your on it hard. I am going to get rid of my cats and add a off road h pipe to make mine louder.

Limited? no. You can cam up your mom's Buick Estate Wagon if all you're looking for is a thumpy idle (of which I'm very fond). My point was that the stock cam in these cars, coupled with the variable valve timing can run into the 11's or quicker without needing to be replaced with a hotter grind. From stock, the last place I would look for power in these cars would be new camshafts. However, if I was looking for a lopey idle, that would be the first place I would look. Still depends on if his definition of "rumble" is the lope of the cams, or the depth of the exhaust tone.

That car in the video has higher duration and lift cams in it. You don't get that rumpty-rumpy sound from anything but cam. A Harley idles the way it does due to its agressive cam(s).

Now as for sound, the Borla stingers or similar FRPP part is hard to beat.

I don't know if Thrush is still in the business or not, but gutted, they are pretty awesome! Cherry bombs as someone mentioned are pretty good too!

BTW, I believe the GTs have an H-pipe from the factory...at least mine does!

To me the only thing that sounds like a 60's big block is a 60's big block. No cats, no x-pipe, nothing magic. Dont even need an h-pipe or a huge cam or glasspacks. A modest big block sounds that way because of its design.

I have two 21" long super turbo mufflers with 2.25" pipes under my 451ci mopar wit hno cross pipe. It is 2-3 times as loud as the stang (which is stock).

Mustang has a nice sound tone to it. Enjoy it or make it a bit louder.

Even if you cam it, it will sound different because it is an overhead cam engine. And only a 281ci motor.

Being built in the 60's has nothing to do with it unless of course you mean they came with cams designed to lope, high compression or no.
ALL V8's can sound like a 60's engine, big block or no they share the very same thing a cam and heads etc.... increase the lift, install long tube headers with decent flowing heads and a mild engine can sound good, increase the compression along with the cam and head work etc and all engines sound healthy and have a great lope to them.
