Default Favorite engine?

Sorry if this is a repost.
I was just curious as to what engine'* are people'* favorite and why. i would prefer to keep this to only automotive engines.
Mine of course would be the ever famous RB26DETT. for the fact it shows how there is a replacement for displacement...and it'* called technology. also the block can hold over 1400HP which is just silly to get out of a 2.6l engine.
For an NA motor it would be a VQ30/35.
ward sure seems to like em...

Rotary (when the apex seals are intact)

But in terms of piston motors, the 3800 and LS2 are tied with me

Add the 3300 to that list. It'* the same as a 3800, but with a slightly smaller bore.

I second your list. All great engines.
