Lol funny title but: It IS TRUE that no matter what a V8 obviously physically has more potential for power it's true no doubt about THAT. But, if you think about it honestly, Japanese inline 4's and inline 6's put out a lot more power per liter compared to American 4's and 6's, especially 4 cylinders. So in my opinion, if Japan were to make a true performance-based v-8, it would be the same in comparison to American v8's as the inline 4. Hondas, of course, if I heard right (PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong) put out more power per liter than any other 4 cylinder or any motor around. So I think it's safe to say that, yes, domestics ARE faster than imports for now, due ONLY to the size which physically can handle more power. But OBVIOUSLY Japanese engineering is just that much better than our own if their inline 4's and 6's are better, right? So what if they just made a humongous v8 and threw in some of their engineering? I think they'd be faster. Any thoughts on this?
