Pretty simple, post a vid of the best sounding V8 engines out there.

Since I'm in a 2-Stroke mod tonight I'll start off with the legendary Johnson V8 (might have to be a bit Crusty to appreciate it):

I always loved the sound of my built 2010 Camaro (or any cammed LS). Unfortunately all I have is an idle vid, I lost my WOT vids. It sounded straight nasty at WOT.

That's what I was going to look for. I drove one with a snail feeding the blower way back in the day.

Just about any 2 stroke Detroit sounds good imo. As does some of the big CAT's.

This thing brings tears to my eyes. Imagine velocity stacks on a GT350!!


And so does this one.

The VW 4.2L is one of the best sounding V8s out there. Ford's pushrod 302 is still the best, though.

There are many great sounding V8's. I think I love them all. I feel that its a tie between the pushrod 302 and Modular 2V 281. The exhaust notes are so clear, crisp, and deep...but im slightly biased lol.

I won't try to dispute that. I had a '99 GT w/ Flowmaster 40-series, and that thing sounded guh-lorious!

OMG! How did I forget about the Jaguar?! The 360 was Ferrari's last good sounding V8, even if it didn't really sound like a V8.

Also, how on earth did I forget about this bad boy??
