I agree. The Nissan VQs sound sweet.

I hate to admit it, but it might be from the Renault influence.

Remember the Eagle Premiere/Renault Premiere/Dodge Monaco? Horrible piece of crap but the engine sounded great....when it ran.

Another good V6 was Chrysler's 440 6-pack great sound

It depends on the exhaust setup...we have some 350z's around here that sound terrible..

Agreed... exhaust setup does make a huge difference. But, in a way, exhaust setup is a lot about personal preference.

Dude.

Don't confuse the Bow-tie boys.

The 440 Six Pack was a RB Chrysler Big Block with three two barrel Holley carburetors. It had 8 cylinders. Just six venturis

...and yes, it was awesomeness!

How about a v6 with cut outs? I think that would sound pretty mean as well.

...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.
