Sean & Lighting (3m 14s):

Okay. That sounded, I even know how many cylinders, like to me that sounded V eight-ish. I was gonna say it sounded V eight, but it’s like too mellow. Like it just got a really good muffler. I, I know, but it’s not, it’s not like an aggre, it’s not like an American V eight. It doesn’t have that like rumble to it. It’s almost too smooth. Think so. There’s a weird like, overlap to it. Hmm. I’m going. I I know, I think it’s definitely American. I’m gonna go with Japanese V eight. Really? Yeah. it just doesn’t sound like anything American. I’m, it sounds too like, like I’m going dodgy. It’s Dodge esque. Nah, I don’t know what it is. I’m gonna go Japanese. Really? Okay. It be something weird like a V eight forerunner or something, by the way. Oh, I forgot to read Seth’s his Intro.

Sean & Lighting (3m 55s):

He says hello Jabob Lee and Fruit Pan. Alright. Jabob. He’s a long term listener. We know that. Oh geez. Really? What is it? What is it? The engine is a 4.6 liter V eight in a 2016 Lexus GX 460 Lightning Could not have been more wrong. No, you said V eight. No, but I mean, I point Yeah, but I said American and you said I just, it didn’t sound like an American V eight to me. Very well. Did I don’t know why. it just didn’t, it just felt like it was too smooth. Muted. Yeah. Okay. All right. Do we, no, you notes. Alright. This one probably not.

Sean & Lighting (4m 35s):

This Is from Colby White. Attached are five. Know your notes Awesome and answers. Awesome. All right. Holy Mac, let’s do it. I, let’s, I’m ready. Let’s start with Know. Your Note. No. Number one from Colby. I I ate my ear weedies today. Your ear Wheaties? Yeah. So my hearing is good. I need those. Ooh. Oh yeah. That’s a high pressure fuel pump. Yep. Heard that. Whoa. The hell is that? I was, that’s V eight with like glass packs or something on it.

Sean & Lighting (5m 19s):

I was gonna say big rig the way it was like thme, but no, it’s a V eight something. Yeah, I, who knows what kind of vehicle it’s in, but it’s gotta be, I’m gonna say it’s a, I I’m gonna go big block American push rod V eight. Yes, a hundred percent. But what, but what, one more time. Listen right here started up easy so it’s not high compression, but listen,

4 (5m 49s):


Sean & Lighting (5m 51s):

It’s not super high compression. I think it’s like a four 40 wedge motor or something like that. Like a dodge motor home or something. You think so? I don’t know. Yeah. Interesting. Big lock. Something American big lock. Okay, so let me look for his answer for number one. Here we go. Here’s Colby’s answer.

5 (6m 9s):

So that there was a 1987 heavy suburban with the Gil Classic TBI three 50 in it with, I don’t know how many zillions of miles on it, but the exhaust on it is a glass pack, cherry bomb glass pack.

Sean & Lighting (6m 25s):

All right. There it is. Alright.

5 (6m 26s):

Yep. A drive line as a section of tubing. ’cause I ran out of exhaust tubing.

Sean & Lighting (6m 31s):


5 (6m 32s):

It was a temporary fix that’s been on there for about five years. Nice. Yeah.

Sean & Lighting (6m 36s):

Alright. That’s, that’s a half a point. I mean, I said glass packs, right? Yep. I said American V eight is just wrong about brand and displacement. I think that’s a half a point. Alright. Do we Now that’s something. A tractor. That’s a tractor. Yeah, it’s got it. That’s something Diesel. Yeah, the four cylinder diesel tractor.

4 (7m 1s):

You think like a,

Sean & Lighting (7m 3s):

Like a little caterpillar or something? Like Kubota or something. Oh, is it a tractor or could it be like a, like a, like a a side by side, you know, like the No, it’s too, it’s too, it feels like diesel and too high a displacement for side by side. All right.

5 (7m 21s):

That there is a 1985 Kubota. Oh tractor when?

6 (7m 27s):


5 (7m 28s):

Tiny cylinder, non turbo diesel dude. Nice. Basically it a giant snowblower as a snowblower

Sean & Lighting (7m 34s):

And I have not, it’s got a snowblower all I have not listened to any of these. All

5 (7m 37s):

These know your notes from this section. We’re all taking them. It’s like 15 degrees outside.

Sean & Lighting (7m 41s):

The reason I said it was that Kubota is because we have a Kubota up at the ranch and it sounded, it reminded me of driving that Kubota tractor around. Okay, well you’ve got a little bit of a headstart on that one. Well that’s fine. I didn’t listen to any of these. That was great. Yeah, but I’m, I’m taking that one. That’s a full No, that’s fine. That’s a full freaking point right there. Take it, take it. You earned it.

6 (7m 59s):

Here’s another one for you. Let’s see if you guys can get this one.

Sean & Lighting (8m 8s):

Is that a monkey with one arm? A hitting a what drum? Oh, two stroke. That’s two Stroke. Two stroke Two stroke a million. Oh, Yamaha. That’s gonna be something weird. Like a 1984 Husqvarna or something. It could be a Husky.

4 (8m 24s):


Sean & Lighting (8m 25s):

Two stroke man. Nah, no, no, no. That’s a Kawasaki is a Cowie. I bet you that’s a Kawasaki. I’m gonna go yaha. Definitely a two stroke. Okay.

6 (8m 39s):

That there was a 1997 Polaris RMK 700. So it’s a twin cylinder, 700 with twin pipes, high compression head and a few other little goodies on it.

Sean & Lighting (8m 52s):

Alright. Totally wrong. We never would’ve gotten that one. No, no. In a million years. No. We saw take a point off the board for Lightning and a whole note. We did not. We definitely did not totally suck. Nah, that was awful. it just occurred to me that our hearing is so bad when it comes to these things that we probably can’t even hear ’em when they say lower the suckage. We got another, another dirt bike or something off road vehicle. Yeah, it’s Brad Rappy. That’s a four stroke for sure. No, that’s a four stroke. I’m gonna, that sounds like a side by side to me. No, that’s a motorcycle. That’s a motorcycle. Yeah. I’m going with some sort of, I’m gonna split the difference. It’s a four Wheel A TV.

Sean & Lighting (9m 32s):

No, no, that, that’s kind of high. He is got an exhaust on it. Yeah. That got FMF on there. Or two brothers or something old. Yeah. That that’s, that’s a four stroke. It’s a four stroke, four silver. I’m gonna go, okay, so I’m gonna go with a power sport a I’m gonna say that is a Honda. Keep in mind he already has a Polaris in the family. It doesn’t is gonna, is he gonna stay with Polaris? No, no, no, he’s not. No, he’s not a he’s not brand loyal. Not at all. Okay, alright. No, no, no.

6 (9m 59s):

That was a 97 Honda XR 400 R with white brothers exhaust on it. Whoa. We close.

Sean & Lighting (10m 6s):

We we said two brothers. No, that’s fine. All right. That’s fine. All right. We’ll give you, we’ll give Lightning that point. All right. All right. I was, I was close adjacent. It was, it was all right. Yeah, it’s all right. Number five from Colby. He’s got quite a fleet by the way. That’s a big rig. Oh, that’s not a big r. Oh no, no, you’re right. So something that’s very ugly cold. It’s angry. Got it’s got the hemi tick. Did a hemi tick. But it’s not a Hemi though. I don’t feel like that’s a Hemi.

Sean & Lighting (10m 46s):

Oh man. Oh man. It definitely had an exhaust leak. And there was a squeak d beginning. Did you hear that Luke again? Let’s, one more time. Yeah. Hold on. Lemme just rewind that. Here we go. Oh, and it’s, listen to how old and junky that thing is. Yeah. Yeah. It’s like a, that’s like a medium duty, like sixties or seventies truck that has no door panels on it anymore. Can you guys hear that? ’cause we’re listening through headphones so it’s clear to us. But hopefully if you crank up your car stereo, you can hear that. So yeah, it’s kind of that old, that old tinny thick but tinny metal. Yeah. Yep. Hmm. It’s an old cab over straight six. It’s a gas straight six Ford tab over Really?

Sean & Lighting (11m 28s):

Cassie cab medium duty. Yeah, it sounds carborated. I don’t even, I’m, that’s what I’m saying. I don’t know where to start on this one. I I’m going with that. Alright, so you’re saying straight gas, say six gas old sometimes in the, some, somewhere in the sixties or seventies. And it is, it’s got a, it’s got a header leak on it or an exhaust leak on it, and it’s like a Ford chassis cab truck or something. Hmm.

6 (11m 57s):

That was a Ford Eco Boost?

Sean & Lighting (11m 59s):

No. What?

6 (11m 60s):

Just kidding. Oh, it’s an 85 Chevy. 4.3 liter V six.

Sean & Lighting (12m 5s):

No, it’s a V six. All right.

6 (12m 5s):

That I bought from my neighbor for a hundred dollars.

Sean & Lighting (12m 8s):

It runs that way. And

6 (12m 9s):

It runs and drives.

Sean & Lighting (12m 11s):

Yeah, it runs and drive like a hundred bucks. Well, that wasn’t super successful. No. It’s funny, the things that we should have gotten. We didn’t. We didn’t. And the weird things we did. Yeah, that was odd. Which is strange. All right, Homan, I got one for you. Okay. All right, here we go. I know that. Ding, do you, oh my god, that thing sounds like a Cummins and it’s not.

Sean & Lighting (12m 53s):

Maybe it’s, oh, that’s the exhaust note. It’s a straight six. And that ding was a Toyota ding. Third guy’s cursing at you right now because they’re mad that it’s really a dodge. You know what? It’s, no, you know what? It’s, it’s your man. That sounds good. It’s your banks that, that piece of crap that you had brought to my house last week when we recorded that gray crew cab. The, was it 21? No, it was a 2012. 2012. Yeah. Yeah. Is that what it is? No, no.

Sean & Lighting (13m 33s):

Yeah, it sounds so Cummins me, but I I think it’s Scott Birds All’s Truck because you were there and that ding in the beginning felt, felt like that’s probably what it was. So your your, your final is a, a Cummins truck. No, I I think you threw me a curve ball. Yeah, you threw a curve ball. Doug Holman, I’m just gonna go with straight six. The correct answer is a 1997 Ford F 2 57 0.03 seat power stroke. Oh, that’s excursion. Yeah. This did not sound like a V eight. Weird. Well, we ended on a bummer. Well, hold on. I, I might have, I might have one for you. All right. I feel like I, I need to redeem myself by making sure you are host that I fail.

Sean & Lighting (14m 14s):

Okay. Well, does Lightning Know Your Note? Chances are slim. All right. I’ll give it a whirl. Oh, geez. Oh, okay. Battery

4 (14m 30s):


Sean & Lighting (14m 31s):

Alright. This, Is. Turn off Darren, real quick. Oh yeah. What is that? That is purring so smoothly. It’s not, it’s not American. ’cause I was gonna say like an old Jeep, but I don’t think it is. I’m going with a, I’m going with like a, a seventies Dotson. Am I close? Do you know your notes? That would be a 2022 Ford Raptor Eco-Boost. It’s no way. It sounds like a Dotson. Yeah. All right. I got, I got one, one more for you.

Sean & Lighting (15m 11s):

All right. Can you, let’s see if you know your notes. I don’t know my notes. No. All right. I’m ready. Hit me Man. So I was gonna say at first your 3 92, but it doesn’t crackle like your three 90. So it’s not that. So I do think it is Hemi. Is it a six four and something? Hmm. What is it? I don’t know. Do you? No. Your notes, what is it? Holman tell me.

Sean & Lighting (15m 51s):

That would be a Jeep Wagoner with a five seven Hemi. I was, it was close-ish. I, that’s that. I thought that was pretty good. Yeah. Alright, so yeah, I I don’t know that we completely redeemed ourselves on this process. No, we didn’t. But I, if it we’re batting at least like 500 ish or something. So I’m, I’m going with it.

7 (16m 12s):

Just when I think you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this and totally redeem yourself.
