    I was making comparisons amongst engines commonly found in pickup trucks.. Not passenger cars or OTR semi's. (Talk about apples and oranges.....) If the I6 is all that and a bag of chips, why is nearly every pickup on the road a V6 or a V8? Inline engines outside of four-bangers are a rarity these days. You would think there is plenty of room under the hood to fit an I6 in most full size pickups so why isn't happening more often? With modern day fuel injection the plumbing would be dirt simple too. There has to be a reason they are not offering an I6 in base model pickups...... ;)

    Early 80s was a good time to go picking on V8 Camaros/Mustangs with sub-200hp V8s. :rolleyes:[/quote]
