V8 is the best!
Who n their right mind could like the sound or gutless ess of a 4 cylinder. Yes some 4 cylinders can have power, but a V8 with the same power sounds 300% better and will last longer.
Some cars do fine with a straight 4 but typically, boosting power means increasing volume and this is also good for aesthetic reasons: i.e. sound, shifting power. 8 cylinders have good traction in an automatic tranny because power is transmitted to the rear faster and that is why usually 4 cylinders come in a stick shift, which is irritating.
easy serious horsepower!
Who wants economy cars?
When the crown vic has one, its simply awesome.
Without 4 cylinder inline engines, we would not have Mini Coopers or smaller economy class cars.
Shovel or Hammer? What are we using it for?
My Lotus Elise makes more horsepower in a 2zz-ge 4 cylinder than a Mercedes s430. Never underestimate 4 or 6 cylinder cars
