  1. With The length of the hood I would think that it is a V-10 Or a V-12.<!-- Signature -->
  2. Re: I-6?

    A V12 engine is not an inch longer than a straight six engine, actually more likely to be shorter.<!-- Signature -->
  3. Re: I-6?

    Look at the size of the engine!
  4. Re: I-6?

    V12 is normally as long as an I-6. V10 is shorter, it has the lenght of a straight five.
  5. Re: I-6?

    ya its just wider cause its two strips of cylinders not just 1 strip. ive never heard of a car with a v-5 does anyone have an example
  6. Re:

    yeah but it is kinda slow i mean for its day
  7. Re: I-6?

    A V5 is impossibe. You need to have the same number of cylinders on each side. There is a I-5 like in the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon and in some Volvos. Was an I-5 in some old Audis, one of their fastest too, the 1984 Audi Sport Quattro. Had a 306 hp 258 lb-ft of torque turbocharged 2.1L I-5. Max power came at 6700 RPM. Ran 0-60 in 4.8, 12.6 to 100 mph, 1/4 mile in 13.5 @ 104 and topped out at 155 mph. And this 1922 Hispano-Suiza H6B Labourdette Skiff is a work of art. One of the very very few things the French did right.
