Can a highly cultured gentleman here share some examples of a good 4-cylinder exhaust sound? Growing up in a hick town in the South, I've been raised to think that anything with less than eight cylinders sounds inherently bad, like a weedeater or a "rice burner". Please help me refine my taste.

Forget any Honda, they're the worst sounding 4 cylinders hands down.

Inline 4 bike engines sound godlike.

Pretty much every other 4 cylinder needs a turbo to sound good, preferably with antilag. They're too raspy unless they have a restrictive ass exhaust.

I don't think there's really such a thing as a good sounding 4 cylinder exhaust sound. Even the great sounding 4 cylinder engines like the 4A-GE or B16 sound like ass as soon as you're behind the car.

This sounds quite similar to my AE86. You might like it. Maybe.

4 cylinders universally sound like shit. You can't tune the exhaust to sound anything more than a raspy weedeater. Some people like that shit, but it's garbage.

If it doesn't have eight cylinders, it probably won't ever sound good, as far as I'm concerned.

That doesn't sound horrible but it's not good either. I've heard lots in real life, they all have a boring fart like burble. Too ricey and not deep enough like the SRT-4's.

They can sound decent.

Granted that most inline fours are used in dailys and are designed to be as efficeint and quiet as possible. Anything sporty or with a vee ate mowturr will have an exhaust system designed to produce a better sound and/or performance.

"Hey mom, look at how much of a contrarian I'm being for saying the 4a sounds bad"
If you're being serious, get your ears checked. Not to mention, the 4a is a 35-year-old 1.6 that's being put against a 10-year-old 2.0 K series.

4A sounds like SHIT. It has a design parameter that no other 77mm stroke engine has- 122mm long rods and a shit 1.5:1 rod ratio. How do you manage to have such a short stroke and still chince on the rod length jesus. NO OTHER engine is that bad.

You think a Yamaha head is gonna solve a shit engine problem? No. For being so jerked off over and overdeveloped, for having a 20V head designed by Yamaha, the thing sounds like GARBAGE. Even ITBs dont help. Seriously, listen to a 4A and compare it to a B16 or F20C.................... someone might think the 4A sounds mean but only until they hear another engine with ITBs.

Somebody explain why he's got two gearboxes and a switch please. Not a diesel or a truck guy, so this intrigues the hell out of me. The second one definitely doesn't seem to be like the high/low boxes in military trucks (only diesels I've been around).

It's more like low-medium-high, it lets you get more gears without cramming tens of them into in one transmission. One has gears spaced closer together and the other further apart so you have 3x5 or 4x6.
I'm guessing the switch is a jake brake

It's hard to find NA I4's that actually sound nice. You'll find very tuned ones that sound good, and normally 4v or 3v per cylinder.

Turbo 4's sound the best, but I gotta admit a crossplane v8 has the rawest, sexiest exhaust.
