Modern engines now typically utilize 6 cylinders or less. The V-8 is still used, but usually with only trucks and high performance vehicles. What does everyone else think of this? While V-8s are not typically known for fuel efficiency, they are very useful engines to make power with. Anyone think that the V-8 will be around for a while longer? In my opinion, I hope so! Can anyone think of any advantages of using V-8s over engines with less cylinders? Disadvantages? All comments are welcome.
