Yeah I ran into that with the P51.  Ultimately I only used the initial cough
and starter sound.  One problem is part of the sound varies with RPM and other
parts shouldn't.  These sounds were originally donated for use by MSFS
community modelers, and IIRC they were pretty highly talked about.  But then
again...maybe my memory isn't so good on that :-)
