It has the displacement of a big block (445 cubic inches). I wonder if the center to center piston spacing is still small block, like the larger GM engines. It is pretty compact. I’m going to say it is quieter than my 2001 V10 class C, but it may just be that I like the sound.


FWIW, I prefer as many cylinders as possible at as high an RPM as possible, so I guess that my V10 powered motorhome slightly feeds that preference. My rumbling, growling, thumbing, offroad 4X4 V8 GMC pickup definitely sounds way different.

(I'lll never forget my ride in a friend's Ferrari - 12 cylinders probably at over 7000 RPM up through the gears - double wow!)

P.S. Many feel that the greatest engine sound ever is that of the legendary BRM V16 at 12,000 RPM. [emoticon]
