Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

Resurrecting this thread. This was mainly a 4k test as I had an old 1080p video of this, but thought I might a well stick it in here.

Ignore the flashing TPMS light, tyres are fine, I just have some winter wheels on and the sensors aren't coded in.

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

I'll put one of my car up soon. My radiator was completely junked by a nasty leak. I'm only about 2 hours worth of work away from having it running at normal temp, after 2 weeks of it going nuclear hot while I waited on parts...
More to the point, it's a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES. It has Mitsubishi's 6G72 3.0L V6. Mine has single overhead cams and 24 valves (and a mighty 195 horsepower!). It might still be a bit rough, since I'm also saving up for a new o2 sensor, crankshaft position sensor, and camshaft position sensor.

Unsure if correct. (Audio was recorded low to avoid peaking, just turn up your end!)

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

That's a funky way to place the exhausts... I wonder why ford chose to put them pointing down.

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

Exhaust is not factory, but is intended to look factory, factory is 1.5" dual with GIANT baffled mufflers + resonators.

What I have equipped is 2.25" with Magnaflow insulated straight through mufflers. The car is not loud, but has presence, when it was stock, it was near silent.

What supprised me is when I installed the new Catalytic converters, it got louder.

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

The modular 4.6 is one of the best sounding engines there is in my opinion. But I hate it when you have such a glorious rumble that's pent up by restrictive exhausts.

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

Did the P73 come standard with dual exhausts, or was it just the P71?

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

P73 could be optioned with dual exhaust. P72 and P71 came with dual.
P73/72 Have 2.73:1 final ratios
P71 Have 3.23-3.55:1 final ratios as ordered.

Re: The Engine Startup and Revving topic

Ok, got to weigh in on this one!
Although its not my vid, it is the engine going in my capri. Sounds pretty good bearing in mind its only revving to around 4.5k :D :D :D
