    4.7 liter Toyota the best ever.

    Not really Scotty. You have to look at Cubes to Cubes or litre to litre.A 5.0 putting out 600hp is way better than a 7.2 putting out 800hp.

    I like the simple engine with less electronics Yea, its Old School, but use cables for throttles, not servos, New Tech is going to Servo valves computer controlled No springs.

    As a platform the GM LS series V8 is by far the best. The Hellcat engine stands on its own merit but every other POS Dodge Ram Hemi v8 sounds like a ticking time bomb with piston slap and knocks. People are swapping LS engines into everything including Fords, Dodges, BMW's due to their strength and reliability. You don't see that with POS dodge engines. Again, your logic is flawed Scotty.

    Sorry Scotty Ford makes the best v8 monster the new 2020 gt500 760hp beast.

    pushrod ohv v8 engines still,rule,no turbos/blowers needed,reliability second to none and recent 4 cylinder cut in cruise mode added 35-40% fuel efficiency active:

    The hellcat engine is a great engine but Dodge needs to figure out a way to get the car under 4000lbs. If they do then the hellcats will be unbeatable in the 1/4 mile.

    How bout your thoughts on gas engines for heavy duty pickups? GMs 6.0 Vortec, Dodge's 6.4 Hemi, or Ford's 6.2?

    Not a super charged or turbo charged V-4 or V-6 made that can hold up to a V-8 when it comes to towing. The amount of heat that is generated from V-4's & V-6's with their turbo's and super chargers literally bakes the internal parts of the engine. That's exactly why Youtube has literally thousands of video's on here about Ford's EcoBoost engine's failing. They cannot stand up under the heat produced. There is NO substitute for a V-8 when it comes to towing.

    Before I watch the rest of this video I’m going to say the best v8 ever built is the ford fe that took lemans 4 years in a row, the second is the ford coyote (the fe’s grandson). The ford fe is a neglected engine family that has been overseen by engine builders and racers. The engine was ahead of its time, it was the first modular v8 in production. If anyone with a large influence on after market parts see this comment, revive the lemans legend and make more parts for it.

    I wish Scotty had gone into depth on why the Hellcat V8 is "better" than the V8 that Toyota/Lexus put in the Sequoia, Land Cruiser and their expensive Lexus SUV's. From the little I've read, people make it seem as though those Toyota 8 cylinder engines are bulletproof.

    What about everyday 'normal' V-8 engines, such as in light trucks, etc?

    Scotty what's your take on buying a used Land Rover discovery 4 (2016)?

    I don’t always agree with Scotty, I think he gives dodge a bad rap and I am a Ford guy, but even he can’t disagree that the hellcat engine is awesome, I do prefer the sound and feel of the 318 aluminator with a supercharger tho and you can get very similar numbers with it too, but hats off to the guys at SRT real car enthusiasts, you just know it.

    Anyone who buys less than a v8 and wants to get out of their own way shouldn't be driving.

    Can you be anymore biased to ford over chevy? Chevy has a better v8 engine.

    A pretty loaded question. What is your definition of "Best" Scotty? Best horsepower? Best torque? Best gas mileage? Most reliable?

  • Karl Schwaber

    800 hp is too much power but the Hellcat is the best V8. Hmmm. 😏

    I rented a Chevy Camaro. I was really impressed with the power. Took a look under the hood and found a tiny 1.9 liter four cylinder motor!! That thing got almost 300 horsepower!!🤣🤣🤣
