...Why not just save some cash and only go with the one at the down pipe, but make it manually controlled?

And why the hell would you want to scare a beemer?

I think THIS V6 sounds very much like a V8! (Not your V8; but you modified it, right?).
No Camaro V6 buyer has to suffer from "V8-sound envy" any longer.
I guess sound is like styling. Sounded like a bumble bee to me. Far far away from any v8. Now, the original posters video really surprised me. I thought it sounded great for a 6er.

The original posters car ISN'T a 6er....he was posing clips of his 8 in order to try and persuade people to buy an 8 instead of a 6.

off topic: how much are turbo chargers? price?
how much hp do they add or power?

1.I'm 17 (plan on buying first 2010 at camaro 18 or 19Yo) a 420 hp v8 would rape me in insurance

2.the v6 gets great fuel mileage

They range anywhere from high 3k's on up to 7k, 5-7k would be twins.

Power addition, its hard to say really, too many variables, the amount of boost, size of the turbo, the way the engine handles boost, etc.

• Cheap
• Fast
• Reliable
• Pick 2

You could get a cheap turbo setup and have to spend more on your engine later, or you can spend the money on a good one. There is no way around spending the money eventually.

I think the best sounding 6cyl. is a Supra, yes I know it's not a V6, I6. Even the non turbos.

But yes the new Camaro's V6 sounds GREAT, for a V6.

I really like chevy's new 3.6 family (the LY7 and the LLT in particular) - don't know exactly why, but I just think they sound really nice.

I'm a V8 guy, but like i've said in other threads the v6 boys and girls are gonna be the majority of the camaro buyers and are a big part of the family. I think the thread title "v6 sound" might have been a little misleading. Neways your ls1 sounds great, but so do the sixers.

Yep, your right. I thought to myself that is the best sounding v6 I have ever heard. Sorry about that.

After seeing all the excitement about the video that was posted on here of the Austrailian SS reving, when actually is was a bad running scooter of some type, I'm not so sure some forum members will know the difference anyway.

Beemers do not have 4 wheels.

Bimmers do

This thread is full of suck. I'm a V8 guy through and through, but after seeing and hearing what the DI Camaro is capable of I'm seriously considering a V6 vert instead of an SS and save that large chunk of change.

It will all come down to the test drives though, if I'm not convinced by the DI (though I think I will be) then I'll step up to the LS3.

All that aside, the OP loses in this thread.

P.S. - drivingincamaro, take a look at this thread - its a discussion about turboing the V6.

Dyno Chart. Also, bear in mind that intake and exhaust was shown to have increase the torque by about 25 ft. lbs. and horsepower by 31.

Well, it's wrong.

Beemer is to BMW as Beezer is to BSA. Both refer to motorcycles.

Woah! Is it really that big of a deal? Remember - we all come from the same batch around here - no need to kill our family members, right?

Wrong to you but not to me. Ive been from california to nevada to texas to florida to Pennsalvania to NY. Ive never heard anyone say Bimmer so I stay with beemer.

BTW: Bimmer is a US exclusive word. NO where else calls them that. The unversial slang term for BMW is Beemer. It started that way so I'll keep it that way. Fin.
