      His voice sounds like the stereotypical redneck. "I don't undeerstand dem der Porsche moters. So imma put a gotdamn Chevy V8 in har".

      Still pretty damn cool though.

      Best 911 ever. That is awesome, sounds fantastic. No chance I'm messing with a 911 that sounds like that if it pulls up next to me.

      There's a better solution.... make the "Turbo" badge meaningful.

      Meh.

      Not a big fan of other marque's engines in Porsches. I understand why they did it, just not a huge fan.

      If one has the technical skill to do that, one probably could have fixed the porsche motor.... anyhow, it's pretty cool.

      Also, now that the ass end is considerably heavier, how well does it go around curves?

      Having never really thought about an LSx in a Porsche, I'm amazed at how much room there actually is in the bay with the engine in.

      I'm a fan of the flat 6, but you can't beat the sound of a healthy v8.

      that is a horrible sound for a porsche.

      i dont have any issues with the v8 swap. but that idle noise just makes it sound like a broken tractor.

      Funny then, that the announcers during the 24 hours of Le Mans could not stop talking about how great the Corvettes sound

      Talking out of your ass or not aware the LS motors are very light? Would love to learn what the flat six weighed, it would have to be very light for the rear to now be "considerably" heavier.

      You're going to base your opinion on engine sounds off of what two announcers at Le Mans thought? Have you not heard those cars in person?
