depends on the car and my financial situation... V8's guzzle gas... so if they were the same price, and i didnt have the funds for gas every week i would go with a 6

For better performance, a V8, for an everyday, better fuel consumption driver, a V6

My '87 Wrangler 6-cyl. most likely gets worse gas mileage then any v8's anyone here is driving.

No turbo-V6? :(

I'd choose a Turbo 6 over a V8, but I'd choose a V8 over an N/A 6 any day

i'd choose a turbo v6 over a naturally aspirated v8 - it'll be quicker, more powerful, AND more efficient.

Not always - but top end power is usually better than that of a V8. If you compare stock Turbo 6's to V8's they're usually neck and neck.

For everyday driving an I-4 is perfectly adequate, but for a performance car, I want at least a straight six from BMW M division (love the new M3).

Definitely a v6. Have a Mustang GT right now but would love a Jetta w/ 1.8t 4-cylinder 150-hp turbo engine. My car is a waste of money. It sucks gas and isn't really worth any performance over a v6.

What about a Turbo V8 on the F40?

When I hear V8, I think about the 288 GTO, the F40, the F355, and the F360.

All your V8s are belong to us! ;)

My 2001 Audi TT Roadster

w/ 225hp Turbo I4



I was on the list for the new M3, but I couldn't wait, I got the TT Roadster last summer.

I used to have a vette, and nuthin better than the giant balls of a V8.
