The firing order is 1,2,3 starting on the Front RIGHT/Passenger side and 4,5 & 6 start on the Front LEFT/Driver's side.

Basically the engine fires like two 3 cylinder engines, and why it sounds different from other V6s.

Sorry, you are right. That was a previous V6 engine (GM 60* V6).

But if you follow the firing order, it fires like 2 Three Cylinder Engines alternating, not like a V6. That was the main thing I remembered about these engines.

Most V6s I have seen from other mfgs use 1-5-3-4-2-6 (based on Ford's cylinder numbers). .

That is why our V6 sounds different from most V6s.

And over the years, I have grown to love our funky sounding V6s.

I especially love it when some jerk attempts to cut me off; he hears me drop down a couple of gears, I out accelerate him, he looks at me and his lips say "What The Heck"?

And others don't bother saying the "WT".

Certainly no need to be sorry here. That said, I’d like to hear my wife say that once in a while. :unsure:

Yep the exhaust sounds better to me stock at WOT than modified at WOT. More of a deeper toned peed off bumblebee than a higher pitched peed off honeybee.

I am still freezing when my ex said "It will be a cold day in hell".
