Diesel sounds...

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the sound is from the turbocharger spooling up and forcing air into the engine to get extra power, that's why most 18-wheelers you hear running around don't really make a lot of noise, they just kinda hiss as they go by you because all in all, a diesel at rpm is actually pretty quiet, its during idle, acceleration and deceleration that they're noticeable because the turbo stops spooling the extra power in.
