    The post from him I was trying to quote was about how car engines have less main bearings and the new engine only has 4 so it's a car engine... Even though the current v6 has 4. Not too sure where the hell you would add more than 4 bearing on a v6 anyways

    Probably the second one. That's what is on the released part sheets. Nothing has been confirmed by Toyota directly as far as I know.

    I had three Mercedes S I6 sedans with dual 2bbl Zenith carbs. Nice sedans. The last I6 I had was the Lexus GS300. The GS300 was quite a ripper. That was a smoooooooooth machine. 145mph limiter on it. Great brakes. Kind of a sleeper sedan. If you can find an I6 GS300 Platinum series with the GS400 17" wheels you'll have a nice and rare machine.

    Like I said, in a high performance application the powerband produced by an I6 can outweigh it's size and profile disadvantages. Lot's of great I6 911's out there fighting the good fight. Correction, the Porsche uses an flat 6, a unique horizontal design that yields many of the advantages of the I6 in balancing but occupies slightly less space.

    Personally if you can fit in an I6 the company can easily fit in a V10 into the same space. The V10 isn't a perfectly balanced arrangement but it pulls even better than an I6. Not to mention that sweet unique 10 piston sound.

    There has never been a I6 in a 911. They always have had a Flat 6 engine. There is no way to fit a I6 motor in the rear of a Porsche.

    Yes, I quickly corrected myself. Unfortunately I've never been up close to a Porsche 911. My bad.

    The flat 6 shares the same balancing advantages as the I6 while occupying less space.

    Sorry I have been drinking all night and missed your correction.

    My old neighbors had a Dodge 2500 with the aluminum v10 in it. That thing was interesting

    It probably takes up the same amount of space but puts it in a different axis and keeps the centre of gravity low.
