Why do the Rexy's flat 4 cylinder have such an awesome exhaust sound?
They have a really nice deep low kinda tone.

I’d think it’s all in the exhaust header, pipework and muffler design of the system...

I like the exhaust sound of the Tesla 3 as it passes the Rex as shown here :p

I thought they sounded like water cooled V Dubs...

One of the best sounds of all time, I still miss my V6 STi.

That said, LS3 all day every day for pure sound baby.

The flat 6 in my boys Subaru doesn't sound half bad, especially with a decent exhaust on it but I still can't go past a nice 304.

Nahh, it's a Legacy, STI with H6 and 6 speed manual, has a stainless X force cat back system on it. Nice revy little motor. Totally loving driving a manual again.....
