always wanted to know is it possible for a V6 to accel faster than a V8 or any smaller engine.

let's say a V6 Ac vs a V8 Max(if they make them)

basically could a luxurious V6 car be faster(accel)than a economical V8?

that is f@ckin scary!!!!!!!

some v6's can give u more HP than a v8 also. the owner of the business i work at is an engineer for ford and he diseigned the "ecoboost" engine for them. its a v6 twin turbo that puts out a s**t ton of HP. but gets v6 mpg.

peep it...


they r putting it in a fusion, its going to be a awd SVT version 350 horses in a fusion...ftw! lol

Depends on alot of factors...
Power and weight will be the two most deciding factors.

x2. More and more cars are being made with twin turbos and superchargers too.

the Jaguar XJ220 is a V6 powered SuperCar, twin turbo. it held the highest top speed for any production car until the Mclaren F1


most cases you will need boost, but it all comes down to power vs weight as CaddyV said. which is why my 4cyl dips on nearly anything, smog exemption helps too :greetings10:

yes anything is possible...typically cars with high output V6 engines cost more though...and if you want to build up one itll cost in aftermarket parts...but anything is possible when you have desire/time/and money.

I will say this...the new Camaro surprised me...V6 300HP!

What you didnt mention is to make a 4 cylinder to that level it takes a LOT more money and time compared to a v8. If you can get a 4-clylinder to 1400 then imagine what you can to do a v8....something with twice as many cylinders and over twice the displacement.

However a 6.79 car is very very impressive. But a v8 will still outdue it.

Like CadillacVyse said it depends on a lot of factors compression ratios being different from engine to engine. Think of it this way if you had a 4 cylinder and added 2 more what do you think will happen? Your going to get 2 more cylinders firing giving you more power. Add 2 more and what happens now? You will double the power you got from 4. The thing is comparing different engines isnt as simple as this because of how they are designed and the vehicle its going in, transmission, etc.

Short answer yes it can but im yet to see a stock v6 beat a stock v8 thats on the same level (or one in general that can beat one of the LS lines from chevy).

he didn't ask if he could go build one in his garage, he asked if it's possible to have a faster v6 than v8, which of course it is, of course it isn't the most practical application but i searched youtube for 3 seconds and here you have a 1400 hp 4 cylinder, i'm thinking i answered his question based off him giving me props

either way the answer is yes 2005+ v6 Mustangs are faster than 94-97 Mustang GT's w/ v8's and there's a 100 more examples like that

TVR(Tuscan 6 400hp stock) makes some nasty V6s. Along with Porsche(GT3 415hp stock), BMW E46 M3(333hp stock), and the Nissan/Infinity(VQ series) are all pretty impressive and the TVRs and GT3 RS can give most of stock V8s a quite a surprise.

But to get this type of power out, it cost money. V8 is easier and cheaper then V6 to gain power.

Hmm.. Note some classic JDM examples some quick V6's:

Honda NSX
Honda S2000
Nissan 300ZX
Nissan 350Z
Nissan Skyline
Toyota Supra

etc. etc.

As a general rule, it's not about the displacement or the amount of liters of the engine, but what it was made or tuned for.

Well your last statement i basically answered in my last post so ill leave that alone. But just remember that the 4.6L v8 in the fourth gen was only makin 215 HP. And a.ssuming the internals and block are as strong it still has more potential then the 2005 v6.

Now you did answer his question. But you didn't thoroughly explain it. Im sure he knew a car such as a honda prelude with 4 cylinders can beat a v8 pickup truck. I think he was askin does 6 cylinders have the same potential as 8. And the answer is no. Due to various factors (that weigh in favor the smaller engine) you will have faster and more powerful engines with less displacement.
