bmw m52 master race
I've always like American engines more than any other. I'm just all about the American muscle and horsepower. Just got a jet boat with a 455 Oldsmobile in it. Kicks out about 500 horsepower.

[QUOTE=Super_Noodle;35533931]CADILLAC NORTHSTAR BEST ENGINE EVER /thread[/QUOTE] C'mon guys, I thought you'd figure that anything in caps is a joke. :v:
I've owned 2 3800 Series II and one supercharged 3800 II. and the only problem I ever was the Lower intake gaskets on the N/A engines, which was only a 2 hour job on all 3 cars... I'd take another one over the piece of shit 60* 3900 My current impala has.
bmw s70 v12 aww yeah
ID RATHER BE A CUMMING THAN A STROKIN XDXDX SPARKPLUGS ARE FER PUSSIES I'n all seriousness though, I love Subaru because their engines are so streamlined and easy to work on. Mine has a tendency to leak oil though. Sort of car related, I like the 3 cylinder Kubota Diesel that the older models have, I'm reppin a 1979 B6100 with 4x4 and a loader
i love the sex a boxer puts out with the right exhaust system on it.

The Cosworth DFV introduced to F1 in the 60's [img]http://www.dyfiprecision.co.uk/resources/cosworth-dfv-1967-1983.jpg[/img] Absolutely incredible engine used up until 1985 it was so good.
The b230F is a nice engine, not as easily modified as a b20 or b18, but way more...modern
[QUOTE=Everyone]ITS A LEXUS[/QUOTE] The engine was designed for a Lexus, but is still a Toyota engine at its core.

I know all G series have been Skylines up past G35, and the M and... Maybe J, were both Leopards. I think. Anyways, Toyota engine, Toyota cars. Lexus is just a name. They don't even do anything.
pop a scion tc's hood boom toyota symbol on the valve cover cover. my 1mz lexus es 300, different heads than the toyota 1mz and made a whooping 12 more hp lol said lexus on the engine cover.

The Toyota Camry 1MZ-FE was rated for less due to using 87 octane, and not the 91 that Lexus reccomended. [editline]15th April 2012[/editline] This is more due to SAE's calculations than anything, there are only minor differences between the Lexus ES300 and Camry engine, but more ideally, the actual TOYOTA variant of the ES300 is identical in every way.
ford econobox engines are pretty neat. an ordinary gas 160 hp engine that still gets 40 mpg with no eco turbocharger or hybrid nonsense

[QUOTE=thattaco;35588069]yet the 1mz trd supercharger will not bolt up to lexus vvt heads on the 1mz. when the 1mz camry motor had normal heads the lexus had vvt.[/QUOTE] You're wrong again. The Camry supercharger WILL bolt onto the ES300, if you use the same generation of engine. The Camry and ES300 both got VVTi after 1998. Neither car had VVTi before 1999. The 1999+ 1MZ-FE with VVTi is the second generation 1MZ, nothing but the block is shared with the first generation 1MZ.
