    Whoa. What if you made the V sixs counter weight into a rotary engine with the V six. That would be very hard but awesome.

    So basically, always go with an inline 6 if you have room and you should only use v6's for small engine bays

    He should have mentioned the inline six cast iron block of the Lexus IS300 series. Super smooth and very reliable 2JZ-GE. Maybe it's why the "IS" stands for Intelligent Sport in our SportCross.

    Chrysler in the 70's had a Hemi 6 inline 6 in 215, 245 and 265 cubic inch. The 265 came with a 6 pack and put out 302 horsepower. The Hemi 6 only was used in Australia 🇦🇺. Here in the USA 🇺🇸 we got the 225 slant 6.

    Inline 6 makes you cool a v6 however makes you look like a pleb that couldn't afford a v8

    I got an AMC i6 4.0 and it’s silky smooth, makes fantastic power and low end torque, 240k miles and you could never tell starts right up and runs quiet, pretty good gas mileage for a 1987 Jeep Cherokee, BUT they definitely did not leave any room in the engine bay 😕 the engines have a heat problem (not mine I fixed the issue with heat soak) , the heat soak will straight screw you if you aren’t careful, other than that those are such solid SUVs can’t beat em IMO
