    I couldn't care less about the sound of an engine. I prefer to not hear any when I'm in my car. That's why I prefer a luxury vehicle like a Rolls Royce or a lincoln. a smooth and quiet ride is what I want.
    EDIT: but I still loved this video.

    I love old engines that barely idle. They sound like they're just about to die, gurgling and growling. Like the idling ones in this video,

    VW's VR6 engine is one of the best exhaust notes to grace the earth.

    Nobodys gonna mention stroke and bore? 100% effects exhaust note.

    • notectrl

      let me guess, larger bore + shorter stroke leads to louder (bigger bang in the chamber) sound of slightly higher pitch ? ( shorter travel, more repetitions aka frequency to achieve same rpm at the crank )

    I LOVE American V8 sound. I personally like it more than European Cross Plane V8 and when I 100% agree that Ferrari V8's sound is great, my heart goes to American Big Block V8's like the 440, which is weird considering I'm European.

    3 rotor wankel is good but nothing beats 3.0 straight six turbodiesel with 3.5 bars of boost at 7000rpm.

    The best engines are made in multiples of six. Straight six, V12. Those sound the best.

    Asking question here. Isn't the amount of explosion from 1000rpm of 1 cylinder 4-STROKE should be the ½ of it (500)? Because, its 4-stroke, and the explosion is happened during the 4th stroke (THE 2ND ROTATION) only, no?
