  • I6 are also stronger since there's a journal for each cylinder rather than a journal for every 2.

  • More and more or going back to straight sixes - because of cheaper manufacturing. As v8 goes down they want combination of straight 4s with 6s. For simplicity and smoothness straight 6 is prefered but with v6 you get better car balance and lower center of gravity which is very important for driving experience.

  • can you comment on why certain stock engines (jaguar f-type, alpha romeo 4c) sound better than others?

  • 0:26 3:25 need to stop trying to be funny, you're not. In addition, why do you crank your head back so far? Yes, your nostrils are clean.... with all that, i do like how you explain certain things that others havent thought to. However,....... its getting harder to get through your videos constantly having to stare at your neck, nostrils, and suffer through "comedy" lack there of.

  • 90% of the stuff I know about how cars work comes from this man

    • That's the same with me! This guy is great! Too many videos on TH-vision that explain car stuff use a bunch of big technical words that only a mechanic would understand. Except a mechanic would already know how cars work, so what's the point? This guy "dumbs down" (I mean that in a good way) the info to make it easy for anyone to understand.

  • I6 is torque king, every 18 wheeler is an I6.

    Jason MullingsJason Mullingsหลายเดือนก่อน
  • One thing you forgot about the i6 is the crank shaft; Because of the engine being longer and heavier, the crank shaft is much stronger on an i6 than it is on v6 and even v8s... this allows the engine to take on extra power and give it right back.
