i've heard the straight 6 is best due to something about it being naturally stable due to something with the firing order of the pistons which i don't really understand + inline engines wear more evenly.
but what about an i3 engine? does it have the same inherent stability since it's half a straight 6?
what are the consequences of having a less stable inline engine, like an i4?

          V8's and V10's have secondary imbalances like I4's they're just minor comparitively

          V12's I6's and I8's don't have primary or secondary imbalances. I8's have problems with crank warp, and just being long as frick.

          OP there's a whole wiki page that covers most engine layouts.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_balance

          V8 is more balanced than I6.

          V8s are inherently unbalanced. Unless you want to change physics, the I6 is just superior when it comes to harmonics.

    It is not as well balanced as the Inline-6 because the I-6 duplicates the ignition order of the 1,5,3 cylinder in the 6,2,4 cylinder .

    Not enough cylinders as in Inline-5

          If only all Jeep guys would be that honest. Bought a Cherokee after the fan bois hyped up the reliability of the "indestructible" 4.0, cps died and left me stranded. Even after replacing it would never run right. It left a bad taste in my mouth. No PCM or ECU on my 4x4 after that.

            Toyotas made after 2008 are not reliable they cut massive corners from 2006-2020 and thats the point i stopped paying attention
            Their only good car is the supra and its a z8 their only good 4wd is the troopy and 200 landcrusier v8s

            No Jeepgay will say that there aren't gremlins to chase. Chrysler wiring is notoriously dogshit, but the engine itself is about as robust as you can make one.
            It's like how the 12v Cummins is a fantastic motor, but the shitty Dodge wrapped around it is where are all the maintenance goes. Same shit, different toilet.

            Maybe, but the ones I knew only liked to tell you about the problems after you bought one, misery loves company.
            Fair point, but I would argue the PCM is part of the motor because it can tell you "no" and not fire the motor if one of the sensors aren't reading right. I imagine the 4.0 would be fine, if not a bit heavy and thirsty with, a new dizzy and a carb. Still a bit more work than deleting the shipping crate and being left with a good motor.

    You need balancing shafts, a heavier flywheel, and a stiffer crankshaft. Or you could be like VW and decide to put the whole thing on hydraulic dampers and have it rattle around (a shit idea for reliability)

    The reason why most industrial and commercial diesel engines come in I6 is to avoid highly stressing the parts or creating an overly complex engine by having a less balanced design. V12 is also another engine that has this feature, and is seen for the larger diesel engines.
