Yes you did. You stated that 2 flat-six engines could have two different
numbers of cylinders, and I corrected you. But of course, you snipped that
No it isn't. The 2.5-litre, turbocharged Flat-4 is the only option in their top
spec Impreza and Forester models and sits right alongside the H6 in the Legacy
and Outback models. It produces as much horsepower as the H6, with a good deal
more torque, a flatter powerband and makes peak power at lower RPMs. It's also
priced nearly identcally to the H6 models in the Legacy and Outback lineups.
The H6's only advantage is it's smoother delivery and lower noise, which may
appeal to more "mature" buyers. Visiting a website now and again may help you,
Ghee boy. Did I ever tell you I once knew a miniature Poodle named Ghee? Much
like yourself, he was timid and afraid of confrontation. Unlike you, it had
nothing to do with his seemingly endless need to fabricate stories.
No, they're not. 60 degrees is the optimal angle for balancing, but for
packaging reasons (i.e. not as tall) 90 degrees is much more common, at
least in American cars. The Audi/VW 2.8 V6 is 90 degrees, as are the
newer Audi V6 engines. I believe the Honda 3.0 and 3.5 V6es are also 90
if GM engines are so great way are they buying V-6s from Honda, if you add
up all the 60s vs. 90 I think the 60s will number more. also GM is starting
to make more 60 and I-6s so I think that the 90 is not in vogue.
Who said GM engines are great? Is this some tactic of yours, changing
the subject when the argument doesn't go your way? I never said GM
engines were great, I said they make 90-degree V6 engines. Period.
Prove it. The #1 and #2 auto manufacturers in the world (GM and Ford)
make predominantly 90-degree V6es.
Again, don't change the subject. I never said that 90-degree V6es were
"in vogue". I said that more of them are made than 60-degree. Period.
Quit changing the subject.
Cripes, he's been doing that since Day One. As soon as he's caught out in one
of his "mistruths" (<= being kind here) he immediately switches to a different
"mistruth". Every time. You scamps are always one mistruth behind him...
I'm having a fit of dumbshit and not following. I'm well aware of how the
standard combustion driven engine operates but I'm not sure as to how a
4-cylinder with a 1-2-3-4 firing order could be any more or less smooth than
one with a 1-3-4-2 firing order, or any other variation. Beyond that, I've
ridden in a W12 Pheaton and found it to be quite smooth, so I find Ghee's
claims (as usual) to be obnoxious.
The firing order will have an effect on the frequency distribution of
the vibration, thus affecting the peak intensity which is what will be
perceived by the human. A 1-3-4-2 order should, hypothetically, produce
vibrations of twice the frequency and half the amplitude that would be
generated by a 1-2-3-4 order. (This is one of the reasons why 1-3-4-2
or 1-3-2-4 are more commounly used than 1-2-3-4.)
Indeed. Car & Driver's recent writeup of the W12 Phaeton uses words
like "completely silent", "won't even realize it's running", and "no
vibration transmitted through the steering column" or some such. That's
low enough in vibration for me.
