And why is it a V6 Twin Turbo?
Because no one can compete.
That's kind of my point, because each engine type has so many different actual models with different variations they may as well all be fruit but that's about the end of the comparison.
>most respectable engine setup
Naturally aspirated single cylinder DOHC 4-stroke.
>no one can compete.
I guess single turbo V6s don't count?
>A car to a car
I thought we were talking about engines?
>or any car to another car with a different engine size?
I could post about the 1976 or so Mustang's V8 that makes 140hp and say V8s are not respectable. I could also post about the Coyote, LS3, Ariel Atom's V8, etc and say V8s are extremely respectable. That's my point. Just asking which configuration is the msot respectable is kinda pointless.
Any Straight 6 with a turbo strapped to it. You could say the same with a straight 5 too.
>A car to a car
or a car engine to a car engine, what kind of mental gymnastics do you have to do to get to that conclusion?
And out of all of those, only the LS-series is seen in a widespread application of cars.
i always forget those
well you have the V6 Twin Turbo and the LS-series.
Both are rather popular, though the LS's popularity mainly stems from it being a crate engine, while the V6 TT has proven it is the example of a "Racecar" engine.
When you see a Miata with an LS-swap, you likely giggle a bit then after a few minutes of thought realize how fucking fun that would be. You respect that car.
When you see a GT-R you meme out and curse Alphonse (may he never find peace) until after a few minutes of thought realize how fucking fun it would be. You respect that car.
Atleast that's the theory.
>Car to a car also accounts suspension, tires, chassis, gearing, brakes, etc. I don't see what widespread use or not has to do with how "respectable" an engine is.
As I clarified in my post, car engine to car engine.
Respectable how? As in power or endurance?
For me it's an engine that runs without problems that can take long enduring drives.
Some 100hp engines can go way longer than 400hp v6 without breaking down.
I think you mean inline 6 cunt.
May that be with turbo's, superchargers or extractors and triple webers.
What I should really should have said is the most respectable set up requires side or down draft carbs cause fuck you. that's why.
So, how are the comparable in a way that would validate the theory that a warship engine or a commercial ship engine is comparable to an S2000's, and then which is more respectable in regards to an automotive board focused mainly on things with two and four wheels?
I would say the LS3 is an engine that is more respectable than the F20C out-of-the-box, but when it comes to upgrading said OOB engine, the F20C holds an edge in regards to reliability and cost of upgrading/maintaining.
However on the converse side, an OOB LS3 engine will still be comparable to the same tuned-up F20C.
How wrong am I?
>What is the most respectable engine setup?
i actually laughed, that was a good one.
>Not naming the best one
Fucking heathens, the lot of you.
Brb best sounding 6 cylinder ever
Brb not a long boat anchor
Brb easy 700 lbs of torque
Big block with nitrous
>boosted small blocks
It's beat em all
You're damn right
>TFW when a better exhaust manifold and modernized turbos could have made this a 450+ motor stock with a tune and injectors
I would think an LS3 would be FAR cheaper to mod than an F20. The F20 is so good out of the box. The intake/intake mani, cams, and header are all pretty efficient. You aren't going to get more than ~15 whp unless you go forced induction. The LS3 on the other hand......
I also wouldn't say the LS3 is more expensive to maintain. Neither engine really needs anything major.
I don't know why we're trying to compare an understressed pushrod V8 to a precision engineered DOHC 4 cyl. Each engine is great, but as different as you can get.
>twin turbo V6
>only makes 600 horsies (yes only, that's fucking shit for twin forced induction)
>0-60 time is only good because AWD (like sti or rs)
>mfw when people buy into this garbage
>>only makes 600 horsies (yes only, that's fucking shit for twin forced induction)
>"twin forced induction" (lol) is a method for increasing peak outputs
This is a poster who clearly knows what he's talking about.
Naturally aspirated flat 6
Any other option is objectively wrong
>9000 rpm redline
>instant throttle response
NA straight six. Turbo if you really have to.
Pic related, greatest non-super car engine ever made. BMW also made the best supercar engine though.
>not posting the best RS
dual cuck transmission is pleb tier.
I don't know why we're doing that either, but I answered the question off the top of my head, and i'm assuming the person modifying this engine will be a boyracer and put 150k worth of wear in 50k miles.
