    The best sounding JNC engine...



    ... twin-cam Hakos are nice (plus they come with sexy tako), early rotaries OK, even 2000GTs rev out OK, but damn does an S800 sound wicked as it approaches 9500 rpm... Screaming around Yokohama in a roadster this weekend, I fell in love all over again.



    More where that came from too! Neko.

    Kinda jealous over here! While hardly as exotic, I'm a big fan of the 6 cyl L series engine sounds and the sound from the 7M. It's hard to beat the sound from an I6.

    Once I get to hear my 20V 4AG at full song, I may add that to the list, though.

    ...Even with a big exhaust, I always seem to think the noise from an inline six is too smooth, and quiet :lol: Especially when muffled by a turbo. Not that I'm overly concerned with sound; I like straight six smoothness, and it's definitely my favorite engine configuration.

    Pushrod, crossplane US V8 rumbles sound best to me though, Ford small blocks probably sound best on average from my experience. And yet I have no interest in those engines.
