Anything that gets me from point A to point B with minimal physical effort and maximum pleasure and could be an electric scooter for all I care... :laughing:

I'll break this up into segments...

Small - Honda's K series of engines (DOHC 16v i-Vtec I4 K20/K24)..these engines are just simply amazing...have great low end and haul ass up high...very nice and smooth at that, all you can ask for out of an engine it's size.

Medium - Nissan's VK56De 5.6L (DOHC 32v V8), siomply because of it's shear might and tech. I mean honestly, it's the only the only full-size truck that offer a DOHC 32v setup (other than the Tundra with the 4.7, but the Tundra's 4.7 doesnt even come CLOSE to comparing with the VK)...These things are WHOLEHEARTEDLY underrated in power...they easily slash out 335-345hp and a tick over 400ft-lbs bone stock. With just an exhaust/chip/intake these things EASILY make 370-380 crank hp and 420+ ft-lbs.

Large - GM's 502..why not a 540 or 572? Because they have a longer stroke therefore make turboing them that much more of a pain :)

The 2jz GTE,
3.0 liter inline six,DOHC,24v(4 valves per cylinder)
EFI, twin sequential turbocharged and intercooled
320 horsepower @ 5600 RPM
315 torque@4000RPM
Plus, its reliable, and incredibly durable. I've heard of people buying one from a junk yard that had it sitting there for 5 years, taking it home, putting in some fuel and having it start right up.

Just for your information:
G=twin cam

sweet engine!

The 2JZ-GTE sounds nice and all, but I prefer the 2JZ-GE because I'm biased! Hehehe :orglaugh:

RB=Race breed, 26=2.6 liters, d=dual overhead cam, E=electronic fuel injection, TT=twin turbo or two turbo

SR=?, i think its just the family code but code be wrong, 20=2.0 liters,D=as above, E=as above, T=turbo

R=rotary, X= experimental, 7=Seventh in the line

CR-V= Compact Runabout Vehicle
HR-V= High Rider Vehicle
FR-V= Family Recreational Vehicle

I have a simple answer to your engine question, here are my top ten (independent from any make):

1. V8 (Sound does matter) :smoke:
2. B4/flat/boxer (Great sound)
3. R6/straigt line (good sound)
4. V12 (good sound)
5. R5 (good sound)

IMO, sound does matter (I know I repeat myself :laughing: )

Just wondering - since my IS300 has a 2JZ-GE in it, if I put in an aftermarket turbocharger, would it turn into a 2JZ-GTE? Or does the turbo have to come stock?

The good ol' 426CI HEMI. Street Hemis. I was going to put one in my '67 mopar project car (that was the first year for the "Street Hemi" wasnt it?) but, I bet everyone here knows how that idea went down the drain.

Amen to that.... 426 Hemi
Also like the new Hemi in production by Dodge.... 5.7L Hemi
Oh ya, 440 (Go Mopar) & the 302 (Got to love those 5.0L Stangs)
