This just struck me the other day while driving my daughter to soccer practice. We live an area with a lot of NW rednecks and as such there are a lot of pick-ups and bro-dozers. My observation has been that most of the truck owners install an aftermarket exhaust making them fairly loud. No big deal, I like loud cars--daily'd a stripped caged Evo.
Anyway, what's the difference in a V8 truck motor vs a sedan/coupe/sports car V8? Really dumb, been a car guy for decades but I never even thought about it.
They sound completely different, especially noticeable with aftermarket exhausts.
