I like the LS2 in my dads goat, and I like the LT1 in my Z.

My favorite however would have to be whatever was in the ZR1 Corvette I rode in once, that car was insane.

ZR-1 had a 32valve DOHC engine in it. Like a a first for a Corvette I think.

and had a 5 speed in it for the fun of it

Toyota M motors nuf said

any Wankel rotary 10,000 rpm and beyond as is

Toyota diesels


rb'* are a good motor as well
The 3.8 in the supercoupes was a piece of crap. Headgaskets were a very bad problem on all ford 3.8 v6s. Do some internet searches and you will see. I dont know its just I had the headgasket go twice on that motor. Not trying to bash you but just make you aware.

I liked engines in my ol' Chevy Nova'* with the 250 CID (4.1L) Inline 6.
The Pontiac 389'* was also a fine block
and I also have a fondness for the VW Air Cooled Engines of days gone past.
