Larger V6'*
GM...4.3, 3900 (not out yet), Ford 4.0 (new stang)

Small V8'*
GM...4.0, 4.3, 4.5, 4.6, Ford 3.4 (SHO), 3.9 (T-Bird), 4.6, Toyota 4.7, 4.2 (f150...cant remember if thats a 6 or an 8 though)

Thats all I can think of off the top of my head

There are a few I-6'* bigger then the 3800, GM has the 4.2 in the trailblazer, Jeep has the 4.0 and Ford a while back had a 4.9 in the F 150'*

I love racking my brain at 4am

I thought the smallest V-8 was the 3.8 in the SHO.

Read the post above....I thought I remembered it being a 3.2L, but I could be wrong. Either way, its definately smaller than 3.8L.
