If we are going to open it up to non car engines I would like to add the Detroit 12/71. That sound...

Has anyone mentioned Slant 6?  It should be on someone's list.

You, me, donebrokeit, tuna55, probably more...

Certainly an iconic engine.

I had three of them in my first two cars. My first car, a 60 Plymouth suburban wagon was the first year of production of the slant six. My dad had a van from about the last year.

That's totally badass. Full pull.

I don't have much experience with diesels at all, but that thing is revving. It sounds like he's hitting at least 5,000.

Take a guess. What RPM is that running?

Probably more like 2500 to 3000. But it's a 2 stroke so it fires every cylinder every revolution instead of every other.

I use to live about a mile from a fishing dock. There was a 110' head boat called the Thunder Star that had 3 12v71s. I loved listening to that thing leave the harbor at 4 am. The captain would get them synchronized and they would sound like someone was ripping down the gates of hell.

And for those that don't know about Detroit Diesels, 12V71 means 12 cylinders at 71 cubic inches per cylinder, so 852 cubic inches.  The air enters the cylinder through conventional valves in the head, but leave through exhaust ports in the sides of the cylinders. 

As the piston rises from the bottom, it covers the exhaust ports and starts compressing the air. 

As it nears top-dead-center fuel is injected, starting the power stroke on the way down.   

On the way down, the intake valves open and the turbochargers/superchargers push air into the cylinder and flush out the exhaust gases as the pistons uncover the exhaust ports. 

I witnessed an air compressor with a 12V71, equipped with a supercharger and 2 turbochargers driving an air compressor that could move 1800cfm and 135psi.

Overall?   Or is this going to be broken down by generation?

Briggs & Stratton single cylinder.  Millions and millions and millions served.  Used old technology longer than most car companies.

Rolls Royce Merlin.  27 liters of flying power since 1933.

Ford Flathead, not because it was first or best, but because it was V8 power for the masses.

GM LS.  It probably has already been swapped into more cars than the small block Chevy.

And for my last choice I am going to lump one type of engine together.  AFAIK no matter who made them this engine layout survived years of neglect, years of abuse, adjust valves? Nah.  Let them tap.  Poor design from the manufacturer with the intake cast with the head, turbochargers, superchargers, lugging at low rpm, revving too high, run hot in stock form?  Bah, keep on going. 1 carb, 2 carb, 3 carb or fuel injection and these engines managed to soldier on.   I give you for my last choice, the straight 6 in all it's forms.

In the top five that interest me but not necessarily good engines would have to include the Miller cycle K motor from Mazda.  I went down the rabbit hole a while back and found it is an amazing piece of engineering. The  block and head design have some little things that set it apart from other K series motors.  One of several motors I wanted to modify and build up with out having a car to put it in.

I think you've got your airflow backwards. The valves are exhaust valves and the intake is the 2stroke style ports in the cylinder walls.

The detroit has two of my favorite engine nicknames in the Screamin' Jimmy and the Buzzin' Dozen.

On the water they get 450 hp out of half that V12.  6 X 71 or 426 cu in.  Those boat injectors burn too much fuel to stay cool on land though.  So you’re looking at about 350 tops for the 6 cylinder.  700 for the one in the Deere.  That’s with turbo of course.  The roots blower is a scavenge pump and it is considered NA with just the roots.  It will not run at all minus the roots blower.

I'm going to base mine purely on the noises they make vs any other argument. 

I'm a sucker for:

- Subaru EJs

- Audi/Lambo V10s

- Mercedes x63 V8s (n/a or twin turbo variants sound great uncorked) 

- Intake noises from any Honda DOHC with a proper intake. 

- Judd V10s
