What is it about V8s that makes then inherently sound so much better than other engine configurations?
What you are describing is the sound of freedom.
Yes, the original Boss 302.
Just realized. Since that video. We took off the big old red sticker and replaced it with a label that just says OFF on one side for a little bit of sleeper appeal. It passes tech at the strip so why not. You can kinda see it in this pic if you zoom in
Crossplane v8 is one of the few uneven firing engines. The two power strokes of every revolution are offset by only 90 degrees from each other, leaving a 270 degree rest period, Giving it a bang-90-bang-270 order. Also, between the banks the order is LRLLRLRR. Making the firing order in the exhaust uneven as well.
>people think two L4 bolted together sounds good
not wanting 28 and 16 litre 4 cylinder engines
besides I live opposite an engine tuning shop so I hear rotors and v8s so often its boring
The general rule is more cylinders = better sound. That's why 4 cylinders sound okay, 6 cylinders sound good, 8 cylinders sound great, 10 cylinders sound amazing and 12 cylinders make you cum buckets.
Half the attraction of V8s doesn't stem from the sound itself, but from the autocultural connections they subconsciously make you draw to muscle cars and badassery. Take a minute to think about whether you'd still like V8s if all they were known for were tractors and garbage trucks.
I think not. Modular Ford's sound gorgeous when set up right...even when set up in super-squishy-comfy-econo packages they still sound alright. Very distinct with open exhaust too, impossible to miss the sound of one firing up in a crowded parking lot
Is this the rare footage of what finally pushed Elliot Rodger off the edge?
>smoothness sounds more powerful than a psycho killer that'll tear you to shreds at the slightest provocation
Thats funny, I thought there were no women on the internet but I mustve been wrong.
Producing sound takes energy, using that energy for motion instead of noise makes it more efficient and therefore powerful.
Wouldn't you know it, the BMW is 4L and 414hp while the Dodge is 6.2L and 290hp. That's pure power throwing you across the earths surface without any theatrical nonsense.
