I always wondered what a whipple-charged motor sounds like. I guess they do sound a little different than roots blowers...

I originally heard that clip with an Indy car in the background; you were supposed to look at the car while listening to the clip and see if you could keep from laughing.

Still cracks me up every time I listen to it (now how many of you out there make engine sounds when surfing Merc's website, eh?)

Mike, I'll bet once they get that thing running on all cylinders it will sound even better

You can't fool me! That's either a 1966 Mustang 289 or a Suzuki X-6 Hustler.

As a matter of fact, I do. The X-6 Hustler came out about the time I got my driver's license. But back then I was too busy looking at all the SS396 Chevelles, 428CJ Mustangs,383 Road Runners, and a host of other street muscle, that there wasn't any time for cycles. Let's not forget the reason we have big horsepower in boats today- it's because of the musclecar era of the late 70's and early 80's. And yes, I have a piece of that street muscle in my garage now. My wife and I own a very nice original 50K-mile 1970 1/2 Z-28, red/black stripes, unrestored (but repainted). Fun to drive but the cops don't have much of a sense of humor when they stop someone for dragracing these days.
