V6 start-up signature sound, replicate?

Since I first test drove a 2012 V6, the noticed the factory tuned the computer to make the start-up very sexy. I have heard of Virtual Cams on other cars, ways to make cars Lope at idle on demand. I was wondering if anyone with real engine tuning computer experience knows what Ford does to make the start-up idle so sexy?

It would be great if certain inputs could produce a different Idle sound at the flip of a switch.

You're modifying the cam timing. When you alter when the cam opens and closes valves, you can make all kinds of different sounds.

Actually, if you made a box that could intercept and alter cam inputs in real time, you could do it at the flip of a switch. Just, it has little practical value and would take a decent amount of work to keep from damaging things, let alone keeping the stock ECM from flipping out when things aren't happening as it expects.
