    Engine Requirement for that close Lambo Murci sound..

    Hello,
    Is there a certain engine out there that can be modified (Maybe a powerful v6, b/c i know a v8 cannot make the sound.) to make that life like lambo murci sound?
    Engine should be able to go 0-60 around 3.5 seconds or close to that range, 300hp+ .. But most importantly it needs to make that sound.. Nothing kills a replica then a sound of a guzzling v8 that just tells the world "Hey Im a phony!!" I heard stories about a 180degree crank shaft but they dont work with v8's.. What are your Thoughts on that new bmw 335i engine? Please share your knowledge of what you know.. Also recommend me to engines that would be best for fast acceleration and that beautiful sound!
    ThankS!!

    I been searching for months now and nothing comes close. The only engine I found that sounds the same is a sport bike engine.

    With the right exhaust you just might come close... ;D

    hmm looks pretty cool.. Question, can I apply the right exhaust method to any v6 engine and come close? I know i cant get the EXACT sound but im workin towards the "Close enough you might fool some people" thing..

    Wouldn't a bmw v12 with the right kind of exhaust work?

    How about throwing in a turbo to up the power output?

    My friend Rico (Staggardlook) ran a true dual exhaust without the catalytic converter, and the thing sounds great! On low RPM's it has a smooth sound that pretty quite, but when you get on it, the thing screems! It sounds best from about 1600 RPM's up to 3500 RPM. I forget what kind of mufflers he used, but I'll find out.
    Without talent experience is worthless
