the question is can anyone give me a direct comparison between a manual (gas if possible) V8 and I6...i want it to be quite a bit better than mine becuase mine if fine for normal driving but the fun stuff suffers a bit...
You will imediately find that your horsepower will increase by approximately 7,000 kilowatts, possibly even 8,000 if you hold your tongue to the left and your aerial is 1/4 of the way down. :p
Seriously, who knows. the V8 could be clapped out and out of tune. Your comparing apples and oranges.
In most cases you would find more power and more possibilty for more power with the V8, but it all depends on the circumstances.
