I think the S54 sounds terrible. So I just go for maximum eardrum damage so no one can tell the difference.

The S65 on the other hand sounds stunning.

I think the s54 engine noise is among the best I've heard. With the CSL airbox, better than most exotics.

But, the s54 exhaust note sounds like ass. So, I have a quieter muffler than stock (SS street).

Yeah, meant the exhaust note. The CSL noise is beautiful. What comes out the back end is like a wet fart.

That list is bogus. So many great engines left out and so many engines that shouldn't be in there.
