Default Should a 95 Accord V6 be loud?

I was given a 1995 Honda Accord LX with a 2.7L V6. The car has about 156,000 miles on it, and routine maintenance was performed at 60,000 miles. The owner said he got the oil changed when necessary, so I do not know how often he took care of it.The engine of this car is loud. It almost sounds like a diesel when revving. At idle, the car is very quiet. I had a 4 cylinder 97 Nissan Altima, and this Accord is much louder than that.I'm just wondering if it is supposed to be loud, or if there could be a problematic issue involved. Was this car known for this? Thank you.I just uploaded a video to youtube of the noise. It may take a little bit for the site to register it as I just did this a second ago. You can hear what I'm talking about pretty well when I move in closer. Its that rattling/growling noise. Tell me what you think: watching another video, I think that the engine might just sound that way, Here is the other vid. made me feel alot better: like a standard issue on some honda engines.

No they shouldn't be loud unless it was purposely altered. Thats all anyone can really tell you without looking at and hearing it. Could be alot of things, such as the intake resonator, to an exhaust leak.

The problem is in your valve train,it will tick to no end,but for a very long time,my 1996 v/6 started ticking around 160,000,it now has 267,000 and besides the annoying tick still runs great.This is very expensive and time consuming to fix,so if you don't have to,I wouldn't,unless you have metal shavings in your oil,then I would be worried.just my 2 cents
