uh........ Yep. Can't get a V6 to sound like a V8, and definitely can't get a V8 to sound like a V12, no matter how hard you try. Funny, the guys with V6's always want to get that "V8" sound, and the guys with V8's always want to get that "V12" sound. Just no pleasing some folk.

Personally, I think a nice V8 Rumble is hard to beat. Only really good scene in Too Fast Too Furious is the race scene when that Hemi Cuda gets revved up!

Yeah. A stock 50 w/ factory exhaust will sound different froma built 5.0 with the same exhaust. It all play in.

Actually you can... or could....

About 15 to 20 years ago I saw a system in Europe being marketed that used under-car, all weather speakers, a processor attached to the engine and throttle, and a midi (or other sound processor). You could program in many, many different cars ranging from Ferrari's to Porsche to old muscle cars!!!

It was great. There you have a fiat sitting at a stop light sounding just like a big block Chevy. Blip the throttle and it rumbled just like a big honking V8!!! Turn a dial and take off from the light and you sound just like a Ferrari all the way up through the rpm’s. The processor was so precise it could even emulate the exhaust pop that Porsches have when you lift the throttle at high rpm.

Pretty neat system, but it never caught on. Hmmmmmm, maybe I should market something like that. The ricer crowd would be all over that!!!....

And the bends of the exhaust, length of the pipe, diameter of the pipe, etc., etc.

LOL Yea, I saw that system to. I think there was thread about it here on TCCoA a while ago. Perhaps I should have put in a disclaimer... Can't make the actual exhaust sound like whats its not.

A thought just occured to me though. With that speaker system, you'd have to make the actual cars exhuast very quiet, so it won't blend/overpower the fake exhuast sound!

The real key to the signature Ferrarri sound is the flat-plane crank. Do a search on Wikipedia or something if you don't know what it is. I looked into it for a small block Chevy I'm putting together, and about $3500 will get you a custom crank. Then you need a custom cam since the piston strokes are timed different. Then, it would all be a waste if you didn't top it off with 4 downdraft Webers. That would be a nice sounding combination. Unfortunately, I don't have an unlimited budget...

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

LOL If you're going to go to that much trouble, just get two Subaru 4-cylinder engines and run them front to back. Make a horizontally opposed 8 cylinder!

Thanks for all the replies. I guess nothing will really work unless I spend A LOT of money, which I can't right now. Hopefully I can pursue something like this in the future.
