The exhaust note through a truck muffler is not a problem at all. The metal
casing of the engine, particularly the head and upper portion of the
cylinder sleeve emits a mechanical racket that is deafening. The air intake
noise is also severe but can be tamed with a suitable silencer. Water
cooled diesels are generally quieter than air cooled models because the
water jacket absorbs some of the noise. If I dug a hole and placed the
entire engine in it underground that would make it quiet.
