    It's an aftermarket sound simulator of a cars engine and exhaust, but they
    say they are no longer available and I want someone to build me one!

    Just get your self a pocket digital recorder and record
    some.

  3. Or just search for engine sound clips and burn them to a CD then play it in
    your car.

    I did those little tricks already but I want to have it sync up to my engine
    rpm. But how???

    To have this done from scratch, it will be expensive. All the R&D would
    have to be independently done.

    Why not invest some money, and have your engine built up to have the
    power and the sound! Then you will have the real thing. Why make a
    chicken sound like a Turkey!

    Or better yet, save your dollars and go out and buy a real good fast
    car!

    What is that movie, Vanishing Point? Dodge Hemi Heads are the best
    sounding engines of all, in my opinion.
    I own and drive a 1978 big old long body Dodge van, 318 engine.
    www.bundyology.com It isn't a Hemi Head engine though.Someday, I might
    check with Wiley Deen and his auto junk yard.He can tell me if he has a
    Dodge Hemi Head bolt in engine.Even it it needs rebuilt, no problem for
    me.I have rebuilt some engines before.

  7. Exactly.. For the couple of grand you'll spend on getting this device
    developed and built you could just build an engine.

    I suppose you could figure out a way to make a laptop do the same thing, but
    you'd need programming knowledge and also some way to interface it to your
    tach.

    Put some glass packs on, and one of those exhaust cut out whistles,
    (sounds lie a steam factory whistle, sort of,see www.jcwhitney.com
    and a Bull Horn and a Air Horn and a Ahhoooga Horn,,,,,

    For funsies, get some Visegip pliers and go aronud and squeeze the tail
    pipes of cars and trucks flat, almost closed and listen to them whistle.

    A microprocessor can generate the sound. Tap off the
    speedometer/tachometer lead to get the engine speed (either count
    pulses/second or use an RC integrator to average the engine speed and
    read it with an analog-digital converter (ADC)).
    Adjust the microprocessor sound output based on the engine speed.

    The microprocessor's sound output drives a big amp and some serious
    weatherproof speakers mounted under the hood and under the rear of the
    car.

    Should be possible to put it all together for less than $1000 in
    single quantities - much cheaper if you want a thousand or more ;-)
