"they don't sound like a V8"
True, but I like the way a six sounds. I was running straight pipes on this creature for a while, but I figured I had pushed my luck long enough (especially while trying to tip-toe through town) so I'm running glasspacks now.

Re: why do so many like 6 cly over v8

I like the I6 because it's not another cookie cutter V8 truck. I've got a 250 w/HEI ing and a t-5 W/C trans. stock intake and exhaust for now. If I want a hot rod I'll buy a Vette or a Mustang GT.

Re: why do so many like 6 cly over v8

I have had my 68 c-10 I-6 250 3 on the tree all over this great country and other than the voltage regulator going out once, it has never left me stranded. Of course I have had to maintain it and I did up grade to electronic ignition and a later model 292 head (w/ hardened valve seats for unleaded gas). I wouldn't trade it for 10 V-8s. I still drive it to work everyday. I have one complete 250 and two blocks and one head for back-ups which I'll probably never have to use.

Re: why do so many like 6 cly over v8

Well I have a 250 I6, a 350 V8, and a 454 V8. I like each one equally in its own way. The I6 has enough power to get up and go and it is good on gas. It gets the same gas mileage as my 350 vortec, the 350 I like because it has raw power but yet the gas mileage is managable, and last but not least, the 454 is freaking awesome because it has nothing but power, but I hate to drive it anywhere because of the gas it guzzles. So basically just what everyone else has said, whatever floats your boat bud. If you want that power and sound, then go with the V8 of some size. If you want gas mileage, go with something a little less in size and quieter. It's all a matter of choice, and that is what I love about these trucks. They are all rebuilt by us to customize it to what we want.
