There's not a MAJOR difference between the sound at 7500rpm and 8000rpm on this S54 on the dyno:



Yes, the pitch (frequency) is higher. But it's not like it's the sound of two different engines... IMHO

You would need to be an "expert" to be able to distinguish between the sound this V8 makes at 7500rpm and 8000rpm... (33Hz difference)
