But VQ engines really do sound like ass clarinets.

Who's going to argue that? 

I remember a guy who cut the mufflers off his 350Z "doesn't is sound good?" no, it sounds broken.

I will expand to state that anything with a "muffler delete" is loud and stupid.

Unless it won't idle below 1600rpm and has a redline way higher than the one on the factory tach.

I don't hate this.  On the street it would suck though.

I usually describe them as My Little Pony farts.

I kind of like them. They do sound better if you leave the mufflers and cats on them though.

Best sounding VQ ever though is such a low bar. That's like the best fellatio from a fire breathing dragon, it's still going to burn and you're still going to soiled with regret afterwards.

I still don't get exactly why they sound so horrible. Almost v8 M3 horrible.

You shut your mouth. The E92 M3 is a glorious-sounding machine.

I'm just not sure why you would remove the worst sounding V6 to install the Worst sounding V8. 

The LS V8's are many things (Powerful, Light, Small, Great swap candidates) but good sounding is not one of them.

Yeah an ecoboost isnt exactly musical either, but at least they're muffled by some spooly bois.

It's completely OK that you are wrong.

Debating the best V6 sounds is like trying to figure out what type of turd tastes the best.... when there is a perfectly nice selection of eclairs in flat 6 land:  cheeky

The Delta in Tubey has a nice sound. The Lambda's sound pretty good. VQ's sound absolutely terrible. They make the renesis sound good.

V6 engines in general are horrible but everyone keeps making them.

I never really reached a point where I truly liked my G35. I had a ton of gripes about it, but the one thing I always liked was how it sounded.

I don't get the hate.
