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
T=turbo
E=injected

sweet engine!

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