    BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING MORE EFFICIENT
    WE DON'T NEED A 6.8L V10 TO MAKE 305HP ANYMORE

      You're right. We need a 5.5L V8 to make 670hp. Keep coping displacementlet.

          The reason why people say "no replacement for displacement" isn't because you can't get more HP if you mod a smaller engine.

          It's because if you perform those same mods on the bigger engine, you'll get even more HP than you would with the smaller engine.

          This is a very concept that I'm sure you already know and you just like stirring the pot on here for fun, but take your (You) anyway.

            just openly admitting you want a pre built pc instead of wrenching like a man. sad tbqhwufamily idk why u admitted this proudly. also didnt a m5 shred a fully loaded camaro with shockingly less displacement? when you tards say displacement you aren’t truly taking efficiency into account, of which it is a major contribution to the death of coyote engine fartboxes in any car except a memecat. most car owners want a car that goes slow to quick fast. those frickhueg engines just make your car unnecessarily heavy and then reduces driving dynamic etc.

      Yep, just imagine how all these cars are going to be as they age and all the plastic shit gets brittle. What was once changing a few belts, hoses and maybe a coolant tank is now going to be replacing half the damn motor presuming these nu-cars make it that far.
      Don't forget about things like direct injection for the purpose of "efficiency" when it in fact makes engines more unreliable and far more high maintenance, and the prevalence of lighter and lighter oils such as Toyota's 0w8 and 0w16.

      There was a time when they did because the engines were NA made way over a horsepower per cubic inch that America just couldn't do with a shitty carbed V8, but nowadays a Honda 1.5T will blow out the head gasket, start misfiring intermittent, and need over 5 grand in repairs, it seems nobody can make a turbocharged engine reliable, it's not in its nature, it's likencylinder deactivation, nobody can get it right and it only causes problems because you're trying to squeeze impossible amounts of economy out of an engine.

During firewatch the dude once dead ass looked at me and said ‘Hey… do you see the shadow people there?” and pointed outside our barracks and def was one bad day away from airing out the platoon on qual day

    Downsizing became pretty popular because in theory it let you have the power of a big engine with the fuel economy/emissions of a small one, which is very welcome considering everyone is always passing more and more restrictive emissions laws. In practice that's not true at all, but that doesn't matter as long as you pass the emissions test

        Before the 90s, hitting 100k miles was a miracle

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          That was due to poor oil quality. People not chaining their oil on time. People also not changing timing chains like ever so when the chains broke and they ruined the engine instead of fixing it they just got a new car. Every engine I've looked under the valve covers from the 90s on back had tons of carbon from shitty oil and all the chains had tons of slack.
          Now we have good quality oil and electronic nannies for service intervals.
          Nylon timing gears killed tons of engines.
          Now we are going backwards with wet oil pump belts and timing chains on the backs of engines that are expensive to replace so they just won't be replaced

    because vast majority of people treat cars like appliances, as they should. they're not enthusiasts who want a big V8 and a manual transmission, they just want something that can get them to work and back and doesn't cost a ton to run.
    a 4 cylinder is fine for that. you're forgetting that gas is basically going to get more expensive forever from now on. most people realize that and prioritize efficiency.

      Yeah, but those people take the goyslop they're given. They don't know that the new 1.8l four banger that they have isn't as good as the also very efficient 2.4l four banger from the last generation. Just an example. even the small engines are getting smaller and worse.
