Besides the obvious (size) what prompts a manufacturer to configure the cylinders in a "V" formation as opposed to "I". What are some of the adv. disadv. of each set-up?
Yup, since the "I" config. pushes down, gives it more torque. Then the "V" config. that pushes at an angle, thus loosing torque. One good example of a an Inline-Sixer is the Supra (MKIV) the engine is virtually bulet proof. Capable of handeling horsepower in upwards of 800-900 on stock internals, and is capable of very high-milage.Oldman said:V6 just gives slightly better response and acceleration
but a I6 give out so much torque compared to a V6 that it'll kill anything off the line
i used to race my dad's 93 volvo 960 wagon against a lot of sh*t and smoked them huge, including 3rd gen camry's v6's (which is what i drive now)
this wagon'll do over 230, that's how far i pushed it and it wanted to keep going, but with rubber only rated to 170 (around there)
