Re: v8 vs 6 cyl
When ever I see this question I always have to ask myself why did I choose the V8?
That's easy, I didn't pick it because it's a better engine, It's not, they are both great engines, with there own inherent problems, It's not because of gas milage, from what I understand, they are pretty close when comparing mpg's, Hey come on they are both carburated.
What it all boils down to is the sound of the exhaust! If you ask me, a CJ is suppose to have a V8 based soley on the sound alone [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]. But when it comes to performance, a 304 and a 258, they are both gonna get you from A to B be it over asphalt, thru mud, across rocks, or up a hill.
I just like the rumble of my 304 and the pissed off look of the greenies out there bitchin' about gas guzzlers as they sniff my tail pipes[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
