I never said that a V-6 is inherently balanced I just said the 60 degree V-6 is "nicely balanced" referring to production engines. So after your great explanation one could come to the conclusion that a V-6 engine with 60 degree cylinder banks is a "nicely balanced engine"?. Also isnt the term "boxer" normally used to describe an engine that has horizontally opposed pistons? Maybe you should go back to the web site that you cut and pasted the info in post #1740 from and read about the "boxer" engines, either that you can go to the Subaru or Porche web sites.
I dont claim to be an engineer or an expert on anything but I do know how your basic Otto cycle engine works as well as Wankle engines.

stang and lariat1 both show up within minutes of eachother to debate with me! Don't you just love that multiple identity feature??
Try as you might, but a V6 that's "nicely balanced" isn't PERFECTLY balanced like a flat-plane V8 or straight 6.
What started all this was **TBUNDY's** "who needs a V8 when you can have a balanced V6" nonsense - ESPECIALLY in HIS case being that his Liberty has a 90 degree V6. Better yet, I'll do it.
If you want to debate, why don't you ask **TBUNDY** to explain to us all how his 90 degree V6 is better balanced than a V8?
Aww, that would be picking on a fellow Ford fan, wouldn't it?

I have often wondered why tbunder claims to know so much about off-roading yet hates lifts. Well I now know. He says this so that if any REAL offroader challenges him, he can worm out of defeat by saying "oh, well you have a lift and big knobby tires - that ain't my style." Now tbunder, when I do finally get someone to run your little grocery getter off the trails are you gonna try this crap, or is this just paranoia on my part? Cuz chances are when I come up there in the next three years like I promised, I might have more than stock height and definitely more than your 30 inch tires

A v6 will fit in places a V8 will not. The V6 will use less fuel, and cost less in weight in and money. Don't pretend to be all-knowing on the different pedigree's of engines, especially since all you do is cut, paste, and plagiarize.
Remember the Limited Slip Differential that you "proved" was available in a Tacoma? Just because you know how to use a search engine, doesn't mean you are right.

definitely say I see more intelligence on behalf of the Toyota crowd on this board. I guess the Ford small truck guys are a different breed or something.
I, for one, would love to know how a 90 degree v6 is "better balanced" than a v8.
Any takers from the Ford boys?

"A v6 will fit in places a V8 will not. The V6 will use less fuel, and cost less in weight in and money."
>>Where did that come from? Quit the distractions and answer the question: How is **TBUNDY's** 90 degree V6 smoother and/or better balanced than a V8?
I cut and paste because it's quicker than posting from scratch. 50% of what I posted was cut and pasted, but edited for spelling/grammar errors. The other half is mine. Go compare if you're interested.
One thing's for certain, though. I back up what I say with research (which you refer to as "cut, paste and plagiarize"). What a concept!
Do you research? Does **TBUNDY?** Do you guys have any credibility? LOL, we all know the answer to that one!
#1817 of 1840 Hmm where to start
Oct 02, 2002 (11:50 am)
First off, Pluto, if you notice that as you move your cursor around the screen it turns into a hand when you place it over a username, well when you click on the username some useful information pops up. If you look at both my profile and stangs you will notice that I live about 5000 miles from him and I do not own a Ford I own a Dodge. Second have you found out what a "boxer" engine is. Lastly I never said nor did anybody else say that a V-6 is more balanced than a V-8 or inline cylinder configuration. I made an observation that V-6's with 60 deg banks are nicely balanced. For those that are having trouble comprehending that statement it means that the engine runs nice and smooth.

pluto- you're a fake. big time. you can get thrown into jail for stuff like that. edmunds, can you read? people can sue sites like this because of things like that-PLUTO!! but we wouldn't expect anything less from a minimum wage earner that can copy and paste like that. whew.
secondly, i never said anything about my V6 being better balanced than any V8- you did. all i said was "who needs a V8 when you can have a balanced V6". iow, a V6, balanced, and more powerful than that old guys' V8 in his old jeep. stop making up things plutonium- you may explode.
houdini- it doesn't surprise me that you see more intelligence in toyota guys' posts with posts like the one you just started out with. that was real intelligent. can you say plagiarize? that's what plutonium just did to try and make a point. and the all intelligent stang caught him red handed. im still rolling with laughter.
sad- i await your arrival with saliva on both sides of my mouth. do you think you'll have a 4x4 by then? or will you play luke duke and just ride along with someone who does? lmao
i can't stop laughing at you pluto. do they have textbooks down there in the mud? you may want to start reading one. doesn't matter what subject, just grab one and start reading. something may happen still.
#1819 of 1840 Old Guy ! I'm 36 Well maybe thats old !!
Oct 02, 2002 (12:34 pm)
Yes the V6's may have 10 or 20 HP over the stock AMC V8's found in older CJ's
but I think we know who has more torque!
The 401ci V8 in my CJ isn't stock. It probably makes
around 250HP. It may be old but she's got the right stuff !
Oct 02, 2002 (12:44 pm)
OK, so here's the record:
1. **TBUNDY** suggests his V6 is better balanced than a V8
2. I tell **TBUNDY otherwise
3. lariat1 says I'm wrong
4. I prove lariat1 wrong with proof from a website
5. midnight_caballo resorts to "cut-paste-plagiarize" to soften the blow
Do I need to remind you of what the acronym FORD stands for? Perfect example!!! No offense h0udini, you're an exception.
