You can try and mask it anyway you want but it still sounds like a V6.

fine for me... the idle on these engines sounds ok (not the high idle) but when you get into it it is kinda rice-ish

The exhaust manifolds aren't setup well for scavenging/sound. It'* much more involved than how many cylinders you have, Boxer Subbies just growl, and BMW Inline 6'* just HOWL..

Ya know, I never knew that hissing sound was normal. I always thought there was something wrong with Charlotte. People in high school would give me wierd looks when I would start her after school. Still don't know why they do that but at least ole girl was just fine :P

Because I'm leaving the Bullet with my wife for the next 6 weeks, I don't want it to ingest any rain.............not that she would ever drive it in the rain.
It will go on again when I return in June.

That much treasured ram air light was custom made by Peterg22000.
