Re: Diesel noise boost!
Amen to the Cummins 24V. Love the way my 01 sounds. I'll keep it forever just to remind me what a real diesel sounds like.
Noise is not the only reason new diesels are quieter. The multiple injection events controls combustion better than one squirt. This leads to lower cylinder pressure, less NO2, less hydrocarbon emissions and better efficiency. Low noise is a side effect. A pilot injection and a main infection gives a nice, not too loud, diesel sound. 5 or 7 injection events is very quiet.
