I don't know, I just like the sound. Never really heard it described as a fire engine siren...more of a banshee being violated in the worst way.

I only have a roots style, but even that sound is addictive. I'd probably spend a lot less of fuel every month if I could break the habit of stepping on the gas just to hear the supercharger wail.

I agree with your statement here but i actually recognize two like this....definitely infinity has the beautiful almost computerized sounding exhaust that i love but i never mistake the low rumble and backfire of a Dodge SRT-4....if i had to choose an all time favorite it would be the low rpm backfire of a SRT-4....love it...(No im not comparing to all the super cars your all talking about)

IME nothing beats the sound of a high-revving V-12, a Ferrari or Aston Martin, for instance. Second to that, the balanced burble of any properly designed V-8 motor is mighty sweet.

I've lived in places where on the handful of perfect summer days the rich people would take out their exotics, and I could enjoy. I also remember being passed by a "New Edge" ('99-'03) SVT Mustang that must have had an aftermarket exhaust on its 4-valve V-8, because it was sounding as good as any Ferrari V-12 that I've heard.

I do NOT like the noise from mild I-4 motors with a Helmholtz resonator trying (and failing) to add the bass notes that only a larger motor can give. I do like flat fours, though. Something in the balance of boxer motors that makes them more agreeable to the ear.


I had a customer who built racing cars using the Ford 2.3l SOHC motor. With a tri-Y exhaust and a hot cam, they sounded pretty nice...for an I-4 that is.

The novelty factor alone makes this a real winner

When we were kids and would put balloons or a piece of cardboard in the spokes. We ride around the neighborhood sounding like we had Harleys. Now that was the best sounding bikes around!

i agree about the inifiniti's for the stock sound of a decent consumer car....the FX's sound great

the v series cadillacs are might nice too
I have a family member with a 2000 Lincoln ls with a stainless magnaflow cat-back and the muffler tip fell off wo when you're at about 4000 rpm the exhaust resonates in the bumper and sounds great! haha but soo loud
