Honestly, I'm too lazy to search the engines in order to search the engines. {I like how I did that double- meaning, LOL} What are they put in, and any spec.s?

Re: 4g63 vs. 6g71,2 and 3

Then I would think,

1] majority opinion rules, if 5 say bad and only one says good, the preponderance is with the majority.

2] If it is probable that the one maintained and didn't abuse, where the others didn't maintain and did abuse, I'd still lean to 1]. Engines should be able to handle some "work", per se.

Meaning, using them hard at times. But I am a stickler, or try my best, to keep an eye on the engine of my rides. So, I feel confident of using my engine hard at times.

Is there by any chance, any recall issues, or problems occurring at certain mileage than you know of?

another friend brought up a good point... how many 4g63's do you see under 10 seconds... quite a few.. then how many 6g72's do you see under 10?? none that we could think of
