    Eh, depends on taste and the car.

    Some are OK, others not so much

    Can be said about any car. Poor (aftermarket)exhaust design creates bad noise.

    Honda engines typically flow very well, makes it easy to **** up. A poorly designed exhaust can make it sound awful. That's not the engines fault, as the same engine will sound great with a proper system or even stock.

    He was inside the car when he said "it sounds like a Honda". The inside sound is very different from the outside sound in most cases. Somebody could be driving along in their Honda with a fart can on and think it sounds like a race car, while all the people outside hear a 'phphtttttttt' noise, which is the reason for the name.

    Personally, I don't think an SVTF sounds much like a Honda, inside or out, but I agree that that's really not a cut-down.

    Well it's typically harder to **** up something like a sbc than just about any 'ricer'/import motor.

    A cheap glass pack sounds OK on one of those v8's, when you stick it on most 4 pots it sounds awful.
    Other than the new Alfa, v6 motors sound horrible 9 times out of 10.
    I6 motors are about the only import stuff that sounds consistently good imho.
