F50 engine smoothness comparison
I had a comparison chance to idle 2 different warmed up F50 engine next to each other and compare the rev-up in standstill situation. Interestingly, one engine was smoother and the other sounded rougher. On one, the chain and wheels behind the tub were felt directer, rougher and therefore a little louder "rolling", the other was less prominent accustically. Dampening of the cabin was identical. From experience of mine I believe to savely say that it's different again from the other 2...somehow inbetween. Interesting as both have been freshly serviced, checked and approved.
As always, none one seems exactly equal/identical to another.
Probably no news to our specialists out there ?!
