Are you seriously trying to tell people that a turbo engine is inherently quiet?You can't get no 'sound' out of a turbo powered car.
Your engine spits it's exhaust straight into the turbocharger, which after the turbo, is just a constant wind.
You could even remove the exhaust can, and run a small pipe after turbo, for weight savings, and it'll still be whisper quiet.
in order to have sound, you'd have to rout 2 cylinders straight to one exhaust, and the other 2 to the other exhaust, and get rid of the turbo.
Which is like 50% HP loss.
Yup that'll do it.
I've got a youtube playlist of 800+ hp Evo 8s and 10s that would blow your ears off.Yup that'll do it.
And to the comment @EricSmit replied to: turbo cars always quiet? Really? That's a joke, right?
Yes - the turbo does provide some muffling ability, it does not make the engine silent.
Examples: Neon SRT4 - no mufflers, not silent, and probably the most well-known - the Abarth 500. That thing has an absolutely monstrous, gnarly sound, and it's only a 1.4L.
My friend's '88 Ranger with a 2.3L turbo had exactly the kind of exhaust you described: a "small pipe after turbo" - the downpipe right into a cherry bomb (so ****, it even had a glasspack) and then a turn down. It was loud as ****.
I had a Corvette, and it did not growl; it absolutely roared. You know exactly what I mean.American growl is a V8 or V12. A four cylinder is made for efficiency not a growl. You young grasshoppers make me laugh.
Drive a corvette or a viper or hellcat, then you will have a growl. A four cylinder to be made to sound tough is more like a meow than growl.
It doesn't apply to any of them. The turbo isn't an instant muffler. It doesn't make any engine silent. It's a preposterous statement.so does this turbo whine only apply to 4 cylinder engines cuz you can definitely hear more then whine with inline 6 v6 and v8 turboed engines or are they exempt from this. well come to think of it the new Yamaha sidewinder is a inline 3 turbo and it doesn't sound like a turbo. i'm just curious.
