1.39 CAT 3408 V8
Originally for ATS. Brought over the pond into ETS2
So I’ve learned some more Fmod and audio editing and now present my 2nd mod.
A Cat 3408 V8 with air start options. Enjoy. I Recorded sounds from my V8 diesel engine
Adjust the engine, exhaust, turbo sliders till you find your sweet spot. the exhaust slider makes a noticeable change in sound output. my preference is above
This mod is Inspired by Chris Dinsdales Kenworth aka gm16v149
I used recordings of his air starts and got them into this mod
You have 8 engines to choose from
500hp,600hp,800hp,980hp, each with an air start or normal start option
You also get new sounds when your truck malfunctions and won’t start
Credits to vsTerminus for the original engine torque curves. He went to a lot of trouble to put them together so go show him some love. a whole bunch of info there about the 3408 engine. This was done with permission. No sound files from his mod were used.
I have had to modify a few curves and ranges
This engine never left the factory with jake. it had a brake saver. This engine has jake because no way I was making a sound mod without jake, one of the best parts of a truck
It’s an “old school” engine so it’s only fair to be compatible with “old school” trucks. It hasn’t been put into new trucks for a long time (the mid to late ’80s)
Would this engine ever be in a Euro truck. probably not
Will I be going to hell for adding it to Euro trucks? probably
Compatible with over 30 trucks. (it’s enough, you can add your own trucks, plenty of tutorial vids out there)
