Hey Bernie, the old "Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday" adage doesn't work when you reverse the order.

Would a V6 running at a still pretty redtarded RPM with huge open dump external gates that probably come off some obscenely well designed collectors really sound bad? Defnitely not as good, but bad?

Typical Bernie.

As far as I've read everyone else who's heard them loves the sound. High-boost high-RPM V6s ought to sound great even if they won't rev as high as the outgoing V8s. The old turbo V6s from the '80s sounded good, didn't they?

Even if they did sound like garbage, artificial enhancement is NOT the way to go. It would sap the appeal for me completely. Part of why I and many others watch F1 is for the technical details that make the teams stand apart. Mandating a squawk box would make for some very depressing reading on Scarb's...

That's not very race car-like. I suspect that fans won't take kindly to anything that detracts from the realness of their experience.

The OPs link, a video with a bunch of 1000hp GTRs sped up double to sound like F1 turbo V6's will, honestly if they sound like that Ill be very happy

If I run no downpipe or starter I can have equal length headers. Hmmmmmmmm...my driveway is at a slight angle...

We all need more turbo v6s in our lives!
