This is honestly the first time that I’ve ever heard somebody has ever admitted they don’t like the sound of a healthy v8.

maybe a bronco
As much as I appreciate an engine's capabilities, I actually want the opposite: quieter. I have no need to drive something that makes people notice by the sound of my proximity - I'm not an asshat riding a Harley and I'm certainly not needing to compensate for anything physically or emotionally that makes me want to go 'loud'.

Nah, f' that sh*t. I want it quieter. When I go out into the mountains, I want to get out there but I prefer to hear less 'car' and more of the world/environment I'm in.

Y'all with your big sounding motors are living in the past. Engine sound is not a direct correlation to capability - and the modern, small engines are not only producing better power AND torque at a higher rate of efficiency, they're also lighter. Hell - Koenigsegg developed a 2L twin turbo 3-cylinder engine that produces 600HP and 443 lb-ft torque without cams.

The future is smaller, more efficient engines - coupled with electric.

Then, after that, the future is ditching all that electric sh*t and going fuel cell which is even more efficient, better for the environment AND we already have an infrastructure in place to allow for rapid re-fueling.

Honestly it's nigh time some people stop holding on to older values and move forward, otherwise your flotsom of degraded ways will get swept up in the current.
Sure BUD, whatever you say.

Yes and no - the chance of a Turbo V6 in the bronco is extremely low.

as many have mentioned it’s being built on the ranger platform in the same plant - they want to have as little complexity as possible. The ranger isn’t getting a turbo V6, so the bronco won’t either

I think you meant "Former Lunch Engineer for Ford."
I'll take a pineapple pizza please.

I like the sound of a V8 but for me personally I love the sound of a turbo blow off valve even more.

I don't care what it sounds like either. Put me in the quiet camp.

My car is supercharged, and has headers and all sorts of other shit...I tried 4 different sets of mufflers before I got it back to stock levels of noise. I don't want the popo to hear me shittin and gettin from 3 miles away.

I've not posted much but have been enjoying the forum and the pizza for some time.

That being said; Where do these people come from?!

This is a VERY key question, quite possibly one of the top 3 most imporatnt you will ever face in your life time...... What kind of pizza do you enjoy while reading this forum?
