The V6 isn't any closer to the cabin than the V8. It just looks that way since it doesn't extend as far forward toward the front bumper to fill the space up front because, you know, it's not as big...
Do these buttheads really think they're helping anything by making stuff up?
For what it's worth, I don't hear that same noise, so, no, it's not normal.
All I ever hear aside from the normal running engine sounds is the "chuff" sound of the compressor kicking in. In fact, the engine is so quiet, the whir of the serpentine belt makes more noise than the engine itself. I can only really distinctly hear the engine at the exhaust.
