Re: EBII V8, ED XR6 or EF/EL w/mods
The best way with any 2nd hand car is to test drive and look carefully at the condition of the car be it a V8 or Inline 6.
Both are inheritently tough provided you know what their problems are and do some preventative maintenance. On the drive side both are fun in there own ways, and just because i own an XR6 i still think a V8 is also good fun to have, it's just that it's a different taste just like red wines and white wines.
For a car thats over 3-4years old, teh way to go is to look at the cars condition and take the best condition in both engine, exterior and interior.
