Here's a really crappy short camera phone video of my F250 with a two stroke accelerating then shifting gears:

YouTube - Detroit diesel Ford F250

That's too short to really do one justice, poke around youtube and you'll find plenty of them, like this old GMC with a 671 (the sound these make up close in the cab beats listening from the road side):

my fav are the engines in the boats i've worked on, they remind me of a time period. at the moment, we've got 2, 16v149 mains and 471 generators.

Love it. Emd 16 645 has got a good sound as well.

and yes I listen to it all day, and all night, I actually cant' sleep when they aren't running.

Any two-stroke Detroit gets my vote.

Dang, I was in the middle of replying to this post when my puter crashed. Now I am gonna sound like a copy cat. buttt.....671 (for as long as you can stand it) Thay are fun to drive too (for the first half of the day anyway)My boss was complaining about the lack of power in the ole 2 strokes and the mechanic told him that he should slam his finger in the door while gettin in the truck so he would be good and mad at it while drivin. (Cause the 2 strokes had to be kept at high rpms to move a load down the road.) Talk about drive it like you stole it.I drove a 6V92 every day for several months. People kinda wondered why I had a door pocket full of ear plugs. I can only imagine what a 12V92 sounds like.They sound the best to me right after start up and their loping or as I like to call it, pawing at the ground ready to go.The wife still has no idea why Im grinnin at her when ever I fire up the 6.9 NA though. Heck it might even help get me some points with her, ya reckon.

You set on a TS24 for 12 hrs 2 feet away from a buzzin dozen even with ear plugs it takes 2 days for your ears to quit ringing.

a QSK60 on a load bank sounds good too, now that is power or a 78.
a 2 stroke is loud not good sounding just my thoughts, to every one his own.

As far as pickup engines- gotta be the 12V cummins, they just sound cool.

I've heard some 24V's with straight pipes that sounded like crap, I don't know why (mostly newer ones).

I also like 6V and 8V detroits, they're cool too

I like them all.

Some are better than others, but diesel fuel smells better than gasoline.

As for the exhaust, I'll take a diesel any day.

It's strange how diesel exhaust can smell different from different types of engines. From a PSD to an IDI. IDI to a Cummins. Cat to Cummins. Even different engine families in the same company can be unique.

They haven't come up for a cure for you either.

This one was on the same page. I think it sounds better, but it doesn't have the jake at the end.

That things sounds amazing at about 1800 rpm with a good hard load behind such as a deep plow or tandem on black clay.

Isn't the 4440 ford a 3 cylinder perkins. I had one on a Ford 4400 TBL in the 80's.
