            transversely mounted + fwd means you don't need a transmission tunnel
            combine that with auto gearbox and bench seats and you can get an awesome 6 seater cruiser with absurd amounts of interior space, like the northstar caddies.
            ofc those were v8, not i6, but still, in theory this could work with an i6 too.

          In front engine applications, yes. For mid engine application with an engine as long as an inline 6, you'll get a better polar moment of inertia with it being transverse than longitudinal. tl;dr better handling because the center of mass is closest to the actual center of the car.

          but if you're building a cruiser, or a econobox, having a transversely mounted engine in the front with fwd is a cheap and convenient way to do it.
          there's a reason why almost all euro econoboxes do it this way. and there's a reason that many of the finest comfort-first american landyachts also did it this way

        The 4L60E was a huge mistake though. Mine isn't busted or anything, but the gaps between the gears are frickhuge and the engine shifts out of the power band from redline. GM really slouched in their transmission development during that time.

      Tbh I think the main issues with them is the lack of maintenance. If you keep up on oil changes and remember that it's a touring car, not a track car (ie: don't drive like a dildo) the reliability concerns are a bit overblown.

            ofc carbs are reliable.

            hardware-wise, they need a rebuild every few years, which is cheap and easy to do, but unless the jets are broken or something, you can maintain them essentially indefinitely.

            there's also a couple points related to modern ethanol fuel that you need to take into account, namely that its a good idea to add an insulating spacer underneath the carb, and that fuel older than 6 months or so should not be used.

            as long as you have properly maintained your carb, it will work, as in it will indeed yeet fuel into the intake. well, you know, as long as the rest of your fuel system, lines/pump/filter, are not dead.

            beyond that, you ideally also wanna tune it well and have good timings. but there's a very wide margin around both carb tune and timings, in which the car will run and be functional, but not perform optimally.

            a 90deg v-angle, cross-plane v8, with appropriate firing order, has perfect primary and secondary balance. just like an i6 or a v12
            it fires every 90deg of crankshaft rotation, vs 60deg for the v12, hence its power delivery is a little less smooth. still smoother than an i6 tho, which fires every 120deg.

            power delivery and vibrational balance are completely seperate phenomena, v8 power strokes overlap more than an i6 but that does not make it "smoother"
            you should stop parroting bullshit you read on the internet
            v8s have rocking couples much like an i4, you need 6 or more cylinders PER BANK to obtain perfect primary and secondary vibrational balance

            actually, you're both wrong.

            the crossplane v8 has perfect secondary balance by itself, but is inherently unbalanced in primary forces (the rocking couple that was mentioned).
            however, this primary imbalance is easily corrected by adding some crankshaft counterweights.
            the net effect is that irl crossplane v8s are perfectly balanced, both in primary and secondary forces, but at the cost of a heavier crankshaft. which means they can't really rev that high. but they are perfectly smooth.

            on the flipside, flatplane v8s are perfectly balanced in primary forces, but not in secondary, and this is much harder to correct, and is generally left uncorrected. engineers compensate with stronger engine blocks and better engine mounts, but the engines themselves do vibrate irl.

            that's a pretty reductive and misguided conclusion
            the balance problem of the cross plane v8 is minor and easily correctable, and it offers other advantages over the inherently perfectly balanced i6. primarily its shorter length, which makes it easy to stick lots of displacement in a typical engine bay. adding some counterweights to a crankshaft is easy, dealing with 33% extra engine length is not.

            Add more weight, mainly. The ideal engine layout for maximum power with the minimum weight is actually an inline 4. An I6 needs a stouter (heavier) crank to maintain enough torsional rigidity, and when journal area because a limiting factor you don't gain anything from a V layout.

            Yeah, all things being equal. The difference is that massive displacement, extreme compression diesels are viable where gasoline engines aren't. Shops are only scratching the surface of what's possible with a Commonrail 5.9L while we've basically determined maximum potential of an actual gasoline powered V8. In order for "gas" engines to get full moron power, they need to run non-gasoline fuel to get there. The absolutely insane diesel numbers are done with diesel. There isn't an alternative.

            define "viable".

            the limitations on gasoline engines are entirely, ENTIRELY artificial, purely regulatory in nature.
            once you take all the emissions bullshit out of the way, you can ALWAYS make more power with gasoline than you can with diesel

            in fact, the only reason diesel became popular at all is because the EU pushed it hard, by allowing diesel cars to emit fricktons of NOx and PM, initially by having much looser limits than for gasoline engines, and later by straight up allowing the euro manufacturers to cheat in testing.

            the only true inherent advantage of diesel is that it uses a less desirable fuel, a by-product of gasoline and kerosene production, which in theory means it should be cheaper.
            that's it. that's the only real reason to use diesel. to save on gas costs.

            Disregarding your fundamental misunderstanding of thermal efficiency, a 17:1 compression ratio is almost standard across light duty diesel engines. There are trucks out there running triple digits of boost through those blocks making north of 4,000 Horsepower. That is literally unachievable with gasoline engines without using alcohol as a fuel source.

Even if you assume diesel engines will outdo petrol engines in terms of peak cylinder pressure/bmep, petrol engines can more than compensate by revving higher. The 2015 mercedes f1 car at the end of the season was making 1030 hp on pump gas from a 1,6 liter engine with compression ratio near 18:1 working at 5 bar boost (72,5 psi)) and 15000 rpm.

            And aero engines like the napier sabre, bristol centauros and pw r4360 were making over 3000hp continuously with high octane (100 RON) fuel in the 40's.

            Neither example matches the sheer output of Justin Zeigler's Cummins, let alone what Power Driven just achieved. This isn't an argument. Diesel engines have more capability to achieve full moron power.

            A 1.6l making 1030hp doesn't compare favourably with a 6.7l making 3336 hp? And while there is an obvious advantage in budget for the former, it has the disadvantage that it has to obey a very strict rulebook and complete an entire F1 season of racing on those levels of power, while justin zeiglers's and power driven's cummings only produce those levels of power for a few seconds on a dyno queen competition with their builders praying it doesn't blow up, while the rest of the time they run at less extreme but still really impressive 2000hp or less.

            Don't bring aircraft engines into this argument. You get into the realm of extreme industrial diesels and you will be fricking embarassed.

            I do admit that 5000hp+ extreme diesel engines like the m501 and the napier deltic are pretty impressive (even though they make more power on methanol), but they would be difficult to fit into a car compared to an aircraft engine:

            As to why you don't see +4000hp petrol engines as opposed to pure ethanol it's because it's much cheaper to make the power on the latter than having to compensate for lower octane, not that it´s impossible.

            It doesn't compare favorably because it can't be scaled up without diminishing returns. We saw this with NHRA drag racing. There comes a point where you can't ram enough gasoline into the engine to keep getting power. There is a threshold where the octane simply isn't enough. Can you get 3000hp out of a gasoline powered engine? Yes, but you could do it easier with an N14 Cummins that's comparable in size without compromising the integrity of the engine.

            You balk at my examples as dyno queens, but they have functional race tunes north of the highest gas powered engine outputs. You are glazing that F1 engine which is ran in an incredibly controlled environment while dismissing that there are literal THOUSANDS of trucks in the US dailied with more horsepower in unpredictable conditions.

            Diesel has higher energy density. On the other hand it burns slowly so it can never compete with petrol for pure power.

        The balance on a boxer-6 is actually even better than on an I6, their biggest problem is how wide they are.

          literally impossible. the i6 (and the v12, which is just 2 i6s) is *perfectly* balanced. primary, secondary, and every other order forces, all of them cancel out to a perfect 0.

          > harmonics issues due to crank length is a physical reality for i6s, not "just some boomer shit"
          Said boomers are worried about crank twist at “high” horsepower (which they probably consider like 300hp) or crank harmonics at “high” RPM (5000+ RPM). Meanwhile a meager 3.0L non-forged N55 will do 500hp on stock internals all day long and rev up to 7,000 RPM all day long with no issues.
          You can even get a beat up E90 with the N52 for $2000, raise the red line to 7,400 RPM and that I6 will take that over and over. And that’s a mass produced I6 that can be had for $500 at a junkyard.
          Try that with a non-racing V8.

            Its not the point that i6 3rd order vibration failure can be "engineered around" it's the fact that for an i6/v12 this problem is notably worse than shorter crank engines.

            A well made cast crank can do 8k RPM and survive for a long time, so what. It has to have special considerations because for an i6 the 3rd harmonic is so strong compared to other engine types.
            >muh perfect balance
            Has always been bullshit because forces affect six degrees of motion (axis -and- rotation, remember), not just four (1st and 2nd order harmomic)
