Ding ! Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. Njawb is now officially the most condecending person on OSO.
Wow man, lighten up.
I give up!!!!!
You talk tech all you want, when you bring something to market I wish you luck and hope it sells and don't have warranty issues etc and make money at it.
I thought we can chat on here without going legal about taking phrases that imply "all" that are said in spirit not literally to make a point. I know I should say things like majority or most and not imply all - I come here to engage in light hearted dialogue about things that I enjoy and ignor my wife and kids for at least 5 minutes!!
Yes, I am stupid and when I imply "All" I mean every last A-hole on the planet!!!

I don't know why you guys are getting so hung up on inline vs. V-engine diesels. It turns out for most long haul trucks, the inline 6 is a good sized package at a reasonable cost. However, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Cat, and others have all built V8 HD diesels, usually in larger displacements. For light trucks, the V-engine is easier to package because it's shorter, hence, the popularity there.

Could you explain your thinking a bit more? I can understand the main bearing support argument, but this harmonics argument makes little to no sense to me. Yes, an I6 or V12 has inherently low primary and secondary harmonics, but so does a fully counterweighted, cross-plane V8. Counterweighting is a problem if you want a quick responding, high revving engine, but that hardly describes the typical diesel.A 120 degree crank will out perform a 90 degree crank any day of the week. Proven by real world performance. V-8 bad! V-12 or L6 good!

A big block chevy can put out 100 hp /litre naturally aspirated
when the proper parts are used ,and 7000 hp when topfuel is used ( 500 ci) that 875 hp /litre (I know this is no comparison)
that 2,6 L Nissan can put out 1000 hp with a big turbo,but only if you spend big $$ on a bottem end and ring/studding the head,if not its a ticking time bom ,you have to use racing fuel to keep the engine from destructing itself ,and or cool things down with water /meth etc
A big block 8 litre used for dragracing with turbo,s /blower can put out the same hp/litre if the bottem is reinforced and ringing the head
The more air is been pumped in ,the more power the engine makes ( if supplied by fuel)
