    8 year thread necro, nice.

    My favourite engine sound is the one I hear every morning when I fire up the flat 4 in my JDM classic Impreza :)

    I would like to add that maybe the best sounding engine for me is one that I can't hear.

    Of course you realize that they only sound that way due to an unequal length exhaust manifold system don't you ?

    Getting a good recording of engine and exhaust sound is quite difficult. You need more than a smartphone really.

    What I meant was that a Smartphone mic isn't really going to work.
    Get hold of a PZM microphone, also known as a boundary microphone and try that.

    OK. Download Audacity (Linux and Windows both supported). Re-sample and export as 128kbps MP3.

    I down loaded audacity for the apple mac which I have. Unable to convert and send. The software has improved the sound recording in my comp but it is still not uploading ? Will try again. Let me know if you have a solution. Tks

    Was overtaken by a Maserati Quattroporte today, it sounded absolutely awesome as the driver was really ragging it. I do like to hear a nice engine driven on the limit.

    I recently drove a friends Ferrari 355 with a Tubi exhaust upgrade. Wonderful sound at redline.

    The sounds that really sticks for me was pretty much any group B rally car. I was at Cirencester in 1986 and remember the MG 6R4 as the stand out noise. There is also something about an Audi Sport Quattro as well from that era.

    Always liked the sound of a TVR personally. If they weren't so unreliable and hadn't shut down i'd probably have bought one
