The ineterceptor car that mel gibson drives at the beginning of mad max (i'm sure all of you know the movie as i do, it's like porn for car nuts)

What exhaust/cam setup would you need, i wouldn't care if my car was the slowest thing on the road, just as long as it sounds as close to that as possible.

I hope this doesn't come across as harsh, but that is an impossible question to answer. The only way you could do that is to find ALL the original specs on that engine/exhaust system and build it EXACTLY the same way, and even then it probably wouldn't sound exactly the same way. It would just be close. There are too many variations and factors in an engine that determine exhaust note besides just cam profile and the exhaust on the car. Getting the exact cam profile and exhaust system used on the car would probably get you about 20% there, but even that is going to be very difficult to find. Build an engine for power, use a good free flowing system, and you'll have a great sounding car. Trying to replicate that exhaust note is most likely a futile effort. Sorry to burst your bubble.

i guess you didn't quite understand what i was trying to say....it dosen't need to be exact, as i know that would be hard to replicate. However i know that the stock cam in my car sounds like a honda engine when it is idleing....

I was searching for approximate setups, that may yeild a sound that is close to the same. (such as someone saying, well i have a 270 cam and 40 series flows and it sounds about the same)

It is impossible as well to find information on the movie car as it was apparently distroyed after the film was made. I do know that it had a 74 351C in it in a Ford Falcon XB sedan but that is about all there is to know about the car

and the sounds are of the real car

I do remember the supercharger on the car was fake. There was a carb and small air cleaner inside the empty supercharger case.

351Cs sound great in the first place. I'm partial, but I don't think there's an engine in the world that sounds better than a Boss 302/Boss 351/351C 4V with a lopey cam.

Amen Steve! The only bad part about my exhaust note is that it is so sweet, it makes my car sound faster than it is.

gear drive , that will make it whine get the loud one , as for the ex note I'll hazard a guess and say real turbo mufflers like corvair turbos had they were almost empty cause the turbo itself quieted it down ,but if you put it on a v8 yowzah ! thats where the term "turbo muffler" came from originally but the corvair turbos were the real mccoy ,and considering the age of the film which was pre flo ,dynomax , etc all they had then were straight glass packs , cherry bombs like that. so It had to be a real turbo or a cherry bomb or something like that.

Yeah, but you'd think Hollywood would have learned about fake blowers in the subsequent 20 years. Anyone who saw the now infamous Fast and the Furious knows otherwise.

Yup, and with a big roller on alky and 1 7/8 primary headers.....Yeeehaaaa!

One time at Cordova, I can't honestly remember why we were there, KV got up on the Rs in the water box and about 10 guys standing about 20 feet away from the rear quarter all moved away covering their ears in perfect unison. The high gear shift backed all of them up at once. It was hilarious.

The big roller cams make em go blah, blah, blah when they idle. Its like the cylinders get all mixed up and don't know when they are supposed to fire. Its very cool.

They sound like nothing else.

A thousand years ago, when I was but a pup, I owned an album that was recorded at some dragstrip. The entire album was of the announcer "introducing" the cars as they came to the burnout box, then you could hear them heat the tires, approach the line and then launch, then as their roar faded off, the announcer would relay their speed & time.....and he'd annouce the next pair up.

Don't ask how many times my mom told me to turn it down!!! Ryan
