Nothingbeatsavette Well I meant to say it as the V6 is the same as the V8 minus two cylinders, but my brain went faster than I was typing. That's what I meant though was per cylinder volume.
12-16-2010 11:22 AM I see where one V6 cylinder would be the volumetric equivalent of one V8 cylinder, since they are basically the same parts in the 4.3 and the 5.7, but how are the 2engines equal in volume?

Random V6 question/ idea, not Vette-specific

Ok so the GM 4.3 liter V6 is the volumetric equivalent the the 5.7 liter 350, and that gave me a random thought the other night. What kind of power do you think could be made from a 320 cubic inch 5.25 liter V6? It'd be the volumetric equivalent of the Zo6's 7 liter 427. I think it'd be a fun thing to experiment with, but I don't know a lot about motors so someone who does chime in on the idea good or bad. I don't know that mpg would be the best, but I'm mainly just wondering about feasibility and performance numbers. I don't know why, just randomly sharing ideas lol. For all I know they could already have something pretty similar and I wouldn't know it.
