>most of it comes down to exhaust
But anon, it doesnt matter what you do to a GM 3800, it will always sound like shit. There is literally nothing that you can do to make it sound at least halfway decent above idle
I blame that retarded 1-6-5-4-3-2 firing order it uses.
I've noticed the best sounding V6's, to me, all have a firing order of 1-2-3-4-5-6 and a 60* V angle. EG: GM's 60* V6 and Nissan's VQ V6
Every BMW I6 except for the M88s. They always hollow, raspy and lazy like a 90's civic with a cheap ebay catback. God-tier engines but their sound to quality ratio is more lopsided than CNN.
Wankel's are strange because I've heard really great sounding ones as well as absolutely ear gouging abominations.
I think having a good intake and exhaust system along side a street or peripheral porting can really make the difference in balancing out that infamous buzzy box sound.
cant stand the VQ V6, I hate that japanese sportbike sound that they seem to like tuning into the exhaust
that deep rumble is all I ever want in engine noise.. I just love the grunt that usually comes along with it
No 4 cyl engine sounds as horrible as a fiat multiair.
Just absolute dog shit
I'm fine with some grunt/rumble but the way a V8 puts it out just doesn't jive with me much.
IMHO the Inline 5 has the perfect amount of both deep grunting rumble and high rev screaming.
I'm not really sure why but uneven cylinder engines sound so damn good to me.
>can't deal that it sounds like complete shit
I might as well shake some steel ball bearings in a tin can
Only crossplane V8 that sounds good has 180 degree headers or 8 to 1 manifold. They sound like a modern straight 8 would sound like
Holy fuck this should turn to godly sounds thread
6 cylinder Porsche engines
They don't sound like shit but they certainly don't match the 6 figure price tag of the car, sound wise. They sound like a old V6 truck motor with a bunch of rust holes in the exhaust.
This motherfucker right here. I swear the fucking japs that engineered this mobile headache designed it specifically to irritate everyone in earshot.
It pains me to say it since everything else about Snek is wonderful, but yeah. The sound isn't anything special.
This. No engine layout warrants this much of a circle jerk. Half the time they don't even sound good, just broken, and with aggressive cams the idling is like they're about to choke at any moment while they're grinding themselves to pieces.
>CHR CHR .... CHR CHR ... CHR CHR ... CHR CHR
That's just the pissing and moaning of rwdfags getting rekt by a civic
Holden Alloytec v6
They're always mounted to an Autobox and rev out to a whopping 4k, or at least thats what it sounds like.
I never understood the excitement some people have about old Detroit Diesels. The power, fuel mileage and longetivity is merely comparable to other medium duty diesel engines, and the two-stroke sound just makes them sound utterly broken.
Fucking this, 3800 a fucking shit. Gay shitty meme anyone that has had to drive series II/III will share this sentiment. I'm so tired of faggot wikipedia mechanics that sing the praises of this piece of shit to the high heavens
its funny owning a ls1 after a intec has made me hate the 3800 even more because every v6 gaycunt in their fully sick shitbox thinks their the next ken block
AND THEY SOUND LIKE FERMENTED SHIT
I rest my fucking case. God damn, my brother took the doghouse off for a week to monitor fuel pressure, and that awful noise...
straight sixes in general sound like farts:
Oh look, it doesn't depend on the engine format.
The best engine sound comes from the intake though, the exhaust sound just sugar it.
The prv with six barrel carbs sound beatiful.
This is now a god-tier sounding engines thread
Prepare your fucking anuses for some downshifts
The only good sounding diesels are in trucks (i.e. real trucks, not american pick-ups), and mostly because of dat spool.
Oh, and Scania makes a mean diesel V8.
>The best engine sound comes from the intake though, the exhaust sound just sugar it.
finally someone that gets it...
My V6 exhaust dumps under the bed. I didn't do the mod but I love the rumble it gives. It also makes girls wet and panties drop. Having a clean lift also gets their thighs stretched and prepped for an evening of having them spread to capacity.
