A effin men.
Too bad Jeep'* 4.0 straight 6 doesn't sound better
Hey, easy slugger!

But it'* true. I wish that my Jeep sounded more badass. If it were cammed it would sound a lot better. Pretty soon I'm gonna get a flowmaster exhaust for it. That should help make it sound a little beefier.

But anywho, to me, there'* nothing better than hearing an old big block roar to life with nothing but a couple of glasspacks.

OK, no comments about these, they're chosen solely on the merits of sound.

1) MGB roadster

2) Anything with a Chevy small-block

3) Ford SVT Contour(rorty, Ferrari-like note, and actually pretty fast)

4) 67 Harley pan-head, straight pipe, no baffles(Specifically, my Dad'* buddy'* 67 Police Special Lowrider [I think it was an Electra-Glide?]with the chain/chain drive. Sounds like a war in a 50-gallon barrel!)

5) My Dad'* 87 F-250 inline-6 (after the muffler fell off)

6) Cummins N-14 Jaking down from a 2500RPM over-rev. Sounds a hell of a lot like a 40mm cannon.



Best sounding engine, ever, anywhere: The radial engines on a B-29 at full throttle. Louder than a Top-Fuel car, you can feel the sound in your bones for an hour after the plane leaves. Saw FiFi(only flying Super Fortress left) a couple of times, it'* incredible!

My new favorite sounding vehicle:

My 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport with a Flowmaster 40 Series muffler and a turndown just before the axle. Mmmmmm, delicious.

Buick Grand National
LT1, LS1, LS6, LS2
lol, and beleive it or not i'd have to agree with the 3100, 3400 with the AC on as well. My cutlass sounded amazing with the AC on w/ the magnaflow exhaust.

I'd say my car too but its still to quiet
