[QUOTE=348SStb;3480515]Not trying to flame you here or get personal... but it sounds like you haven't owned a V-8 Ferrari. The Ferrari V8 in the 458 Italia is an absolute beast, producing mega power and torque (for its size and its normal aspiration) at just about 2500 RPMs and then at 3500-4000 it's unbelievable. The most flexible engine you can construct under naturally aspirated conditions. Nothing comes close.

The engines in its two predecessors, the F430 (2005-2010) and the 360 (1999-2004) have the same characteristics - just less peak power output.

Mind you, I am just talking Ferrari V8s here. The V-12s are different kinds of monsters.[/]

Um no offense but you're wrong. I'm trying so hard to restrain myself here

2nd choice would be the ford powerstroke 6.0 litre ....ive got one that is strait piped in my black excursion and it sounds unbelievable -that turbo whistle is crazy
If you just want the high pitch sound of the turbo then you don't need the 6.0 just the 10 vane Turbo off of it.

But my vote would be for twin turbo'd Ilmors.
