i have several v6 friends and their cars sound better than SOME of the v8s...but again, matter of opinion.

What about the rest of the car...or are we riding engines down the road, now? Interesting adaptation of the "heated seat"... I'm sorry, couldn't resist.

Ford sells engines, Chevy sells cars, dammit!

The point is comparing your V8 to a 2.0T is just stupid. It's not a valid comparison in the least.

You should be comparing performance level, rather than cylinder count.

No, what I did was point out how stupid it is to expect a 270-300 HP 2.0T Alpha Camaro to have a shot against a 426 HP LS3 Zeta Camaro.

Sorry but that whole idea doesn't float, first off muscle cars died along time a go. Back during the muscle car days, not all trim levels of the cars were for performance. All the cars came with straight sixes up to big block V8's to fit all markets, nothing has changed since then.

Like it or not, this the way its going. I guarantee the mustang gets an ecoboost as a base engine. I've also heard rumors that chrsyler is working on a smaller replacement for the challenger that will be powered by a turbo4 as a base.
