They are not only mundane designs, but they really haven't done anything interesting in forever. A good example of this is a Toyota Corrolla. It had a horsepower bump in 2002 from 125 hp to 130 hp...

Some of that reputation comes from the dark age of american cars. I don't believe their reputation is deserved. Have you seen how many class action lawsuits Honda has been involved in or Toyota?

Well that the thing. I think most people are less sensitive with those cars. They drive around with worn motor mounts and suspension and are not as sensitive to it. I agree that 44K is premature but...

Most likely yes. At least affordable horsepower. CAFE standards are going to kill affordable horsepower. We have a few more years of a golden age before it comes to an end and we enter a dark age.

It's the best picture I could find. There aren't too many examples out there. However, look into the hood of a mustang and look into the hood of your camaro and see how much space the engine takes up.

The simple answer is higher RPM. Also, the coyote produces as much horsepower and LESS torque as a 6.2 LS3, but at PEAK which is a very narrow range.

The 6.2 still has advantages from being a...
