So I just had a semi-random thought. There are engines that are great motors for a variety of reasons...for their immense performance potential, for their glorious noise, for their engineering ingenuity, or what have you. So I got to thinking...what would people consider their five favorite motors? I'm thinking in terms of overall character, performance, sound, and so on, but I guess the criteria is up to you.

Off the top of my head, five favorites in no particular order:

Ford Modular V8
Honda B18C
Porsche Flat-6 (I know there's been a million of 'em)
Audi 4.2 V8
Honda NSX V6

Maybe if we get a few common picks we can put up a favorite engines poll or something, I dunno. Discuss, debate, and pontificate!
