    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.

    It hasn't attacked you yet has it? From what I understand it's coiled and ready to strike.

    But yes, normal.

    My '10 makes the same sound; low rpm from a dead stop. Normal so far.

    You're ok as long as it doesn't go "blap, blap, blap"

    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.

    Glad to hear this is normal. Bought mine a few weeks ago to replace my 08 GT and its boggled me ever since.

    I am also curious as to why this happens
