Have to agree with you that the 2.7L is lousy but it works! And while I'll never have it if I could afford the Prado, it's great on the Hilux & Hiace. Feels like bulletproof. The exhaust notes are terrible on the Prado TX-L tho.

About turbocharging, I'm indifferent for now as it's gradually taking over the world. I've had an experience with the 2.0 TSI on the Passat (2009). Very little lag but reliable (This wasn't in Nigeria). It did 157K KMs with no major repairs. It's sad Honda replaced the J35. I'm still happy Toyota has it's 4.0L V6 on the 4runner so whenever I can afford it, I will.

When driving cars like the Tundra with the 5.7L iForce V8, the environment is the least of my concerns cheesy cheesy. Drove a 2009 model back in 2013 from Lagos to Enugu and the music from the exhaust is still fresh in my head


The sound gets better when you straight pipe that exhaust... Oh boy, Oh boy... That raw symphonic voice note from that beast. Saving up some cash for a C63 AMG and straight piping it ASAP. cool[quote author=Kufie post=60345415]

You might wanna go with the X-Pipes on the C63 especially if you're talking about the N.A 6.2L V8. Sounds way better

Just passing by and soaking it all up grin What I do know is, first car was 3.0l V6 and second was 2.4l i4(which served perfectly) all Toyota. Never going back to the i4(if I can help it) except it's wifey's car. [No need buying her a V6 since she said she wanna drive exactly like me(and I'm scared of my own driving at times)] I have nothing against the i4 like the op but my choice has always been the six.

Definitely the old roaring lion 6.2L V8, nothing beats the roar or a naturally aspirated V8 engine. Besides...only a few mechs here are acquainted with the turbo charged engines, don't want that headache right now. The X-Pipe is a good one, ups performance too. Either ways... The mufflers are going off

Greetings Lads, (and) Lasses who hang with the Lads here.

Y'all remember the ever-so popular Club-lexus? Well this is another Lexus-praising thread and primarily to say 'I RESENT 4-CYLINDERS'

I've been there and back in the past with the Opel and their ecotec engines and complex electronics, the Mazda 2.5L V6, the Lexus ES 3L V6 VVT-i and the Camry(s) which I still own (for now)... Albeit only a handful but i've come to a convicted conclusion- naturally-aspired or not, 4-cylinders are CRAP, humongous CRAP. They rank within the lower strata of internally-combusted automobiles.

Here's why I think very little of them (now) in a somewhat short description. Ride quality is sacrificed (for the most part), Vibrations are ever-so present, noise sipping out into the cabin as you drive along and it's nowhere over with it's flaws. I can't live with these, not anymore. Need I mention Power and Torque? Yes, in the next line.

I remember when I was made to drive into and through a flood within Festac extension (before the roads were tarred). I don't know how to calculate distance but my Lexus V6 was submerged in water for well over 30mins. I couldn't go any faster either, who struts the gas pedal when inside water, not to mention the invisible portholes and mini-ditches by virtue of the damaged roads and heavy rains. I could see water leveled atop my windshield (no exaggeration).. With all the torment to the car that day, car drove flawlessly for another 3 years before it was sold. Try that with the Toyota Camry 2.4L (which I currently own) or a Honda Accord of the same engine displacement.

Yeeaahh I know the 4-cyl/6-cyl analogy/debate is popular knowledge and I'm aware of the 'different strokes for different folks' notion but Damn! Nigerians are afraid of a lot! I recently met a well-dressed-seemingly-smart-man at a gas station and I found him not to be smart in the end when he mentioned his fears of a V6 engine. Afraid of a V6 engine? His reasons were ludicrously alarming and I prefer not to talk about it. It's this sort of people that would say 'my vehicle's 120km/h is faster than your vehicle's 140km/h'.. Haha.

Now for the Lexus? I can tell, yes I can. Having befriended other car brands, I've been laid flat on my face and whipped with the rough end of a pineapple, I underwent perpetual misery with the Mazda and the Opel, or maybe I knew very little then.. Reliability, safety, luxury, ride quality, and even ergonomics IMO, et all. Hmmm. Lexus wins.

Earlier this year, I sat in the cabin of a 2014 GX460 and it was a 'wowser' even though I didn't even drive it. I don't know of an MB of it's class that has better luxury and attention to detail.

Caveat- We know a 4-cyl can be made to be as powerful as a 6-cyl or even an 8-cyl but I don't fancy the general feel of the Turbo either. That's not the point here anyway.

So now I'm swerving to a naturally-aspired 3.3L V6. The Lexus ES 330. Thank goodness it comes with a base V6 as Standard.

I can't afford to run multiple cars now so imma have to let go of my older Camry (I just over-hauled it's engine so I no kuku send the hediot car again)

Brewed thoughts are welcome.

He's a petrol junkie. The fumes he inhaled from his gas tank has got him talking crazy.

@Jagermeister

Hope you know the 2018 Honda Accord doesn't have a 6-cylinder option (whether V or straight-six).

The era of thirsty cylinders is fading away.

Imagine mating a humble turbocharged 2.4L to a 10-speed CVT.

That's Honda's future and I'm sure Toyota et al will soon follow suit.

Stop inhaling gas.

It's funny how people conclude v6 is always thirstier than the I4!
W202 I4 230k consumes more than the W202 C280 V6 M102. And the v6 is faster and more refined.

There you go throwing tantrums like a loser I know you to be. This further gives credence to what I know you are- online warrior and as weak as Chinaware offline.
