Is there anybody on here that can give me a comparison to the older FJ80 straight six that has driven both?
There is more seat of the pants power with the V8 for sure, but IMHO they made the V8 way under powered for the platform. Too me it feels sluggish for the displacement.
I would rather the V8 over the 6 but it isn't as big of an improvement as you might first think.
