The Engine Startup and Revving topic


#1

Hey everyone!

I saw the video of Jakgoe starting up and revving his V12 mercedes and I wondered, what if we all put our videos here of us starting up and revving up our car?
This way we can get a nice collection of a lot of different types of cars doing this! :smiley:

I will record my own soon! Please post yours here!

Here’s my car. Sorry for the crappy audio/video and my horrible scratchy voice. :slight_smile:

No videos of the green car revving yet (will post them when able). The silver car had glasspacks to the factory tips, all else stock.

@07cobaltgirl = I love the burble on the overrun. That will be mandatory on all my future cars. :slight_smile:

haha it gets even better later. I’ve done so much to it since this video. :wink:

Only car I’ve ever owned worthy of this thread sadly I don’t have any more. I do have an idle exhaust clip and a clip of me driving down a dike road late at night, though.

This was my '73 AMC Hornet, factory 304 warmed up with a mild Edelbrock cam and intake manifold, Holley carb, and dual Flowmaster exhaust.

My current car, even if I had a ZZP exhaust and an atmospheric BOV, would sound like a moaning dog with a sinus issue.

I suppose I will put my Mercedes’ clip here so they can all be in one place:

Mercedes Start-Up

#8

I’ll join the crappy 4-cylinder corner with my mom’s Clio with rusty muffler.


#10

ill join as well gonna wait till after my tune up and oil change though its almost a year overdue :confused: car is a 01 grand am 2.4


#11

Alright, here is the great, the amazing, Pleb’s Mum’s Peugeot!! (Sorry for my crappy camera skills, and for holding it the wrong way so there’s black bars on the side… I hate it as much as you do, also, TinyPic seems to have stretched the video to fill the screen… -_-)

The car is a 207, completely stock. So, as you’d expect, it’s not exactly a gargling beast…

Not a gargling beast, but still…

SWAGILICIOUS :wink: .


#13

And don’t you forget it. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

I guess I should gather one of my car driving. hahaha If you think the exhaust sounds nice, you should hear the intake. :wink:


#15

Alright, alright, alright… Wouldn’t want to be outdone by the Peugeot/Renault crowd here. :laughing:

Starting up and “Revving” in a parking lot (didn’t have my heart into revving because it has a really low rev limiter in neutral):

And to show you my POWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (or lack thereof):

Onramps are so much fun! :smiley: edit: and you can see the boost kick in @ 3,000 rpm, awesome!

Since I no longer have the silver Mark VIII, here are a couple of clips of the green Mark VIII, taken this evening.

I got 2 vids of my old Audi S6

Revving

Acceleration


#18

Just wait til I get me a video of the Prius. Extreme swag overload.

EDIT: Here is the beast, you should probably turn the volume up a bit. Start in EV mode, then switch to Hybrid mode so you can hear the engine start, with the weird silence of not having a traditional starter motor (and the weird noises a Prius makes on startup). Bit of revving after that too. Do be warned about the wind noise though when I go outside.

No-one can beat the awesomeness of this.

I don’t know what the best part of that is, Pyrlix… the chickens, the tape grille, or the smokin’ and dancin’ as you throttle that bad boy
