Word!

Most car companies test out new features/designs on the less expensive engines before moving them up the chain. Do the same math with some of the newer N/A I4s out there and you'll see where things are really heading. Then compare them to the turbo cars and it will blow your mine. Almost all of those are above 100 HP/Liter now and going up. The Ecoboost F150 is at 120 HP/L and the LFX is "only" 90 HP/L. Can you imagine what V6's will be producing 10 years from now?
