Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2

Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1. Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Audi R8 4.2l V8 ohne ESD / without exhaust
This Audi R8 4.2l V8 has no Exhaust and is really loud. We were working on this car and wanted to install a new sports Exhaust by Supersport.de when we decided to just let it run without the Exhaust. You like? Wir hatten gerade an dem Audi R8 gearbeitet, um in der Supersport-Werkstatt einen neuen Duplex-Endschalldämpfer einzubauen. Da kamen wir auch die Idee, die Flunder einfach mal ohne den Endschalldämpfer zu fahren. Hier ist das (laute) Ergebnis...
