@Stupidasole
turbo v6 requires a turbo which is more parts
more stuff to go wrong meanwhile v8's can be so much more reliable with the option of still going turbo and making more power than your v6 turbo

tl;dr no replacement for displacement

Because if you have a v6 you have a rotten cunt.

why do v6 owners have to constantly try to justify their purchase to v8 owners?

btw OP v8's can be turbo charged too.

inferiority complex. oddly enough, you dont get as much self justification as 4 cylinder guys. sure they talk shit but its nowhere near as much "im better, you shouldnt exist at all"

If turbo 6 cars are so good then why don't any turbo 6's race in v8 supercars?

That's what happens when your door lock heaters corrode into concentrated evil and drain your battery to 2 volts overnight.

(OP)
Because a V8 can make the power without the turbo. And weight difference is negligible considering the weight of modern cars.

Also, 6cyl engines sound like crap. Even the very best one's only sound "okay."

@TechHater

That's changing starting next season. Also, they were used until the early-'90s until they were banned.

Because a turbo V8 would make more power than a v6 turbo
A v10 turbo would make more power than a v8 turbo
A v12 turbo would make more power than a v10 turbo etc....

whats the point of v8 or v6 when you can get a 1000cc motorcycle for 4000 dollars and it does zero to sixty in 3 seconds and tops nearly at 200mph?
