Been there, but forgot it
FWIW they can achieve it via timing as well. Focus & Fiesta ST cars get the aftermarket tunes with "crackle" by augmenting timing advance on decel. I doubt an OEM would resort to doing this via fueling as that would mess its MPG and EPA tests.Our coupes are handsome, but that Jag is GORGEOUS. Sorry for the cold water. On the plus side, the gen coupe sounds better in V6 form. I'm not sure I like the Jag dumping fuel into the mix to make those pops and rumbles, either. Artificial noise to add "excitement" is such a turn-off. Also, a 3,800lb two-door with no rear seats and compromised storage... Not a very handy car for cruising around or road trips.
That being said, if they weren't so damned expensive and offered a manual, I'd be waiting in line to get one.
You sit corrected, sir.FWIW they can achieve it via timing as well. Focus & Fiesta ST cars get the aftermarket tunes with "crackle" by augmenting timing advance on decel. I doubt an OEM would resort to doing this via fueling as that would mess its MPG and EPA tests.
If artificial noise to add excitement is a turnoff, then modifying any portion of the exhaust would be the same notion......
Sweet. Wish we could do this to our cars. The crackle tune in the fiestas/focii are enough to make me want one.You sit corrected, sir.

They use extra fuel and late ignition to set off snaps, crackles, and pops. And I built my exhaust for lightweight and high flow. I'll admit the flow is probably too high for optimum scavenging at the engine's current VE. That the exhaust also produces snaps and pops is just a bonus.
