    What did all those great sounding engines rev at... not 12,000.

    Actually when the 3.5L NA engines replaced the 1.5L turbo's in 1988 the engines were in the 11-12,000 rpm range. By 1990 they were up to circa 13,000rpm and we were giddy at these insane high revs. Those engines sounded absolutely amazing. Even by the mid 90's I think they were still in the mid teens (x1000). 12,000rpm can sound amazing when the energy is allowed to escape. With the MGU-H they are working at recovering as much of that exhaust heat energy as they can. In the process they sound like (insert favorite jibe here). IF you doubt that a V6 turbo engine can sound good at circa 12,000rpm (ish) go and listen to some clips of the greatest F1 car ever built, the 1988 MP4/4

    I mean Ferrari's own 126 with it's turbo v6 sounds very nice also.

    Maybe the MGU-H could be optional...like KERS was for a bit.

    The Buck Rogers cars could have a spaceship graphic on the side...the cavemen would carry big clubs in the cockpit.

    It sounds good, but I still like the F2004 sound and it's arguably the greatest F1 car ever built.

    Mugh optional I don't think anyone would hesitate in not take after all its a system that allows no lag so it's bound to be in every car.

    I actually liked the V10's because they revved high, but they had a less "polite" sound than the super smooth V12's. But I'm weird like that. :)
