Positive effects after 458 recall

Interesting...after my recall, my 458 is louder and more sonorous - is this part of the yet to come scuderia version modifications?

Maybe the new heat shield is responsible? I can't see any mechanical upgrades being done for no charge.

A mechanic told me they basically remove all the insulation and then clip the shields back into place. Not sure how much weight this saves but this would account for the car sounding much louder.
