V8 burble… how does it work? | Overclockers UK Forums

Found this thread on a forum – not having a V8 before you could be mistaken that one of the cylinders isn’t working correctly …… this put my concerns to rest.

Could somebody please watch this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8qGSwS3SCA) and explain how the V8 gets that awesome, slightly off-beat gravelly burble which seems absent from German V8s?

It seems typical of big American V8s – Shelby Cobra (427ci) makes the same noise, etc.

Is it literally displacement or a combination of carbs, cubes, and exhaust?

And yes, pretty much any excuse to post a video of a 60s Mustang.
