(and besides v8 sound awesome to me) i mean they may not make major power. but the power/weight ratio is what counts
hell yeah, i agree with you on every acount that you mentioned there.
L4's are mint engine's, especially the DOHC engine's, they've got amazin' potential when you've got the cash...
admittedly, you can put $2k in a V8 and $2k in a L4 and you'll get a better result from the V8.. ofcourse.. BUT.. as you said, it's all about the power to weight ratio.
