I’ve made a promise what ever car i get next that i will modify has to have a “legendary” engine in it. meaning im not with the overly modifying of motors. Fuck sleaving, dry-sumping, block gaurd, ect ect. Pistons, rods, cams, boost, boost and boost, haha and maybe some juice. But seriously nothing pains me more that trying to see some turn a frail engine into a mild performing vehicle. its a waste of especially if budgets tight.
Now the only rule is that all 4bangers must be able to handle 400hp reliably, 6 cylinders 550 reliably.
Now ill start with the 4-bangers
-4g63 mitsubishi
-sr20det nissan
-A853 dodge/crysler/mitsu
-3S-GTE toyota
-ej20- subaru
That was in no specific order other than yes mitsu is #1 …. not biased its the truth. Now some may be wondering were you D,B,K series are on the list. Honestly they dont cut it. IMHO from what i know they wont cranks out as much hp STOCK FOR STOCK as the engines I’ve listed and still RETAIN reliability. Honda gets its for design, “They produce a street driven pump gas N/A engine that produces over 120 Hp per litre. Who puts three lobes on a Cam shaft. Who Controls cam timing live. Honds is smart the others are just strong”

Now the 6 cylinders the to two contenders 1st
-2jz-gte
-rb26dett
-APB ,AGB, AZB- b5 s4 engines
-s54 -E46 bmw
-s50 – E36 bmw
-vr6 2.8 r32 ???? – vw jetta/gti
now thats is allll i can think of right now. I hope i didnt offend any honda people but we envy your amazing mpgs lol. so u have that in your corner.
modifying any engine for more that 50% of the power it makes stock that cant handle it is a motor you should stay away from on budget builds or unopened engine builds.

    good list for starters..however, in the four banger section…u left out the EJ20 (subaru) also capable of 400+ hp, and as well neglected to mention one of the best motors IMO, the wankel, specifically the three rotor (20b)…i would also say the 26b (4rotor) but i believe that mazda never created that and thats its a custom thing individuals put together, so idk if that counts
