Give me a V8 anytime.
Check YouTube for 'six cyl. dual exhaust' or 'split exhaust'. You will find some sounding as good as, or even better than, a V8.

I did say how "most sound". I've heard some really nice dual exhausts on a few sixes. I remember in the 70's a neighbor down the street had a really nice '66 Pontiac Tempest coupe with an OHC 6 that had duals. That car sounded sweet. If a tiger could purr, that's what it would sound like.

A 300 six with duals sounds like the Jaguar from Hell...
