    Factory clutch hissing sound

    Just curious if anyone else has experienced a "Hissing" noise on the factory clutch when you begin to release? I'm pretty new to the GT500's, the car drives and shifts perfect, but the hiss only happens as you release the clutch.

    Anyone really understand why this hiss exist?

    I had a C5 which sounded like a marble in a paint can when you would shut it down. LOL. Turns out it was very normal

    I had an 07 CTS-V that had the sound but it was far less noticable.

    Not I have a hissing Cobra, just curious why it occurs.

    I am also curious as to why this happens
