How to make a v10 lamborghini sound with your mouth
Man, this is one heck of a video. You've probably seen - or heard - your
buddies, or maybe people on the internet making car noises with their mouth
Well this guy, Alexis from Argentina, takes it one step further. He
instructs step-by-step how to very accurately replicate the sound of a
Lamborghini V10 engine with your mouth, using just a can, some patience,
and maybe luck. If you don't want to watch the tutorial and just want to
hear the noise, skip to 5:25 to have your eyes, mind, and ears blown away,
oh and listen for that epic downshift at 6:15.
Enjoy, fellow car enthusiasts, and live out those childhood dreams.
How VTEC Sound Like
This is what VTEC should sound like. The crossover to the high cams should
be linear without any power loss. My car was tuned to make maximum power
across the RPM range. This was done in 4th gear.
I Dynoed 210whp &
154wtq on a Dynojet.
Car: 2008 Honda Civic Si FG2
Tune: Hondata FlashPro
VTEC kicks in at 4k RPM all the way to a redline of 8.6k RPM.
"VTEC (which stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control)
is an electronic and mechanical system in some Honda engines that allows
the engine to effectively have multiple camshafts. As the engine moves into
different rpm ranges, the engine's computer can activate alternate lobes on
the camshaft and change the cam's timing. In this way, the engine gets the
best features of low-speed and high-speed camshafts in the same engine."
Here is my Civic's record at the drag strip:
What is VTEC and How Does it Work? - EricTheCarGuy
VTEC or Valve Timing Electronic Control is a system that's been used by
Honda in passenger cars since 1991. I believe the 1991 NSX was the first
production vehicle to get this system. It has since been used in several
other Honda vehicles. Late model VTEC equipped vehicles use the iVTEC
system which also changes cam timing as well as lift and duration. The
system is designed to give you the 'best of both worlds'. You get to switch
between 2 cam profiles. One for fuel economy, one for performance. A lot of
people think that when VTEC kicks in you get an extra Boost of power. Not true in my experience. It
does however extend the torque curve to give you more performance after it
does switch over. There is no set RPM where VTEC switches. The computer
looks at several variables and calculates when to activate the VTEC
solenoid. It's a cool system and for the most part rarely has issues. The
most common issues I've seen with VTEC are the result of low, or incorrect
oil viscosity. So if you have a VTEC engine, keep the oil topped off and
make sure you use the viscosity listed on the oil cap. The animations are
