A blown V8 like the Cobra's doesn't sound all that good IMO, because all you can hear is that stupid blower.

A buddy of mine had an all motor 5L stang that went bottom 11's (it was NA too), I've gone for a ride, and have even driven it myself. The sound is amazing, and it had so much power when u got on it, it'd almost pick the wheels and lift you out of u'r seat.

But really, it's all about preference.

mmmmmmm not quite.
Sure i5 and vr6 sound unique. Unique doesnt mean nice though.
I dunno about you, but i6 bimmer do not sound like other i6 to me.
Benz, jaguars, supras do not sound the same as BMW.
BMW i6 sounds OK, but nothing special either.

P.S. Twin Screw/Rotrex blowers sound much better than turbos, period. Best idle clearly belongs to the muscle cars.
So Blown muscle car = best sound.
P.P.S. Gotta admit, fast revving engines sound very nice too.

No not period... U'r not stating a fact, u'r stating your opinion.

I don't understand... do you mean highly modified muscle cars? with lumpy idles? or stock ones?

So in YOUR opinion a blown muscle car = best sound...

while I think they sound ok, I don't share u'r passion for them.

But to each their own

Dude I'm Russian. I've heard 'em all (except the wart one), they sound like that Audi. It's an annoying farty sound. Listen I know taste is subjective - people who have Audi 5s love how Audi 5s sound, people who have BMW 6s love how BMW 6s sound - but I don't know ANYONE in their right mind who can say they hate how a big V8 sounds.
