Both of them need a good muffler. The 268H cam has a pretty distinctive note- - - -I've installed a bunch of them.

You should hear a 16v-71 Detroit run.
It was one of our emergency backup generators that we did maintenance on.
Do a u-tube search.

Last week, one of my former students told me he was planning to surprise me with the gift of a 702 GMC V-12, but the owner of the engine sold it for scrap iron the day before he went by to purchase it!

Don -- I've heard one of those run. Not impressed. With that many cylinders, it sounds like noise. You have to be able to hear the individual notes to enjoy the true melodic magic of a symphony. So maybe I will change my vote to a 6-71. I like listening to Grigg's 4-53T run, too.

My other choice would be a Pratt and Whitney R-985. Had one fly over the house nice and slow earlier -- pure rapturous music! (The DHC-2 Beaver from Test Pilots' School)

6 cylinder gas engines are ok, but nothing to write home about in my book. Although ... I do like following Chris Sweet's Green Machine -- the 261 on twin mufflers sounds as good as it gets (for a gas engine). But I like the sound of a 4 cylinder aircooled Boxer with tweeter pipes better ...

Jay, the second one.

I like the sound of the old John Deere 2 cylinder corn poppers, seeing as everyone is off topic.

Subaru boxer 4 cyl, turbo charged? Or, one of those underpowered Volkswagens?
