    I'd be surprised if more than zero people on this forum cared about this.

    EDIT - Oops...Missed your second post. I guess someone did!

    Stock untuned 3.0 V6 Honda dyno vs untuned WRX dyno

    I own a V6 Honda with the 3,5l engine. The timing belt assembly can get loud with age but mine's got 170K on it and it's been a great motor.

    In fact I think Honda has been the best motor maker anywhere for a while now -- since the fall of the BMW straight six. I'd say only Toyota motors come close today.

    What is this all about?


    That is a very nice flat torque curve. My BMW 633 had similar but went even deeper into the low RPM. It was really cool having power down that low but kind of uneventful. I'd take the lag for the extra 50 ft/lb. with the WRX.

    I just did some pulls against a friend's Accord V6 in my bugeye today and while the WRX was quicker from a stop or a slow roll, he definitely had some power up at higher freeway speeds. Pretty neat car actually. I'd love to hit the track with it some day and really see the differences.

    Me too, love the old-style 6's in general.

    Agreed that Honda may indeed be the premiere engine builder on the planet, overall.
    That said, I haven't found an NA V6 that gives me what I want for my enthusiast car...that is, some excitement. My G35c had a similarly flat torque curve, and though powerful, kinda bored me to death. Perhaps if I hadn't come from turbocharged cars, before that...
    All of that aside, Honda's/Toyota's/Nissan's V6's are wonderful engines for upscale sedans, general commuting, etc. Great power, easy to drive, reliable.

    What kind of dyno was that? dynolab? It would be interesting to run my current setup on that, to see how it compares to the mustang dyno numbers I have.

    So far the only posts I've seen from this guy are:

    - "FWD is teh best because if you have muscles then torque steer isn't an issue and it's better for the front end to break lose than the back end."

    - "Here is a comparison of a stock untuned honda v6 that actually is not stock at all to a stock wrx that is actually not a wrx at all (but rather is another honda v6)"

    I am slightly unimpressed with anything at this point.

    I get a kick out of this... you can hold on to the wheel as hard as you want, torque steer has NOTHING to do with the inclination of the wheels but the torque bias between the front wheels. Even if the steering wheel is perfectly centered, torque steer will still occur and cause the car to wander during accel. FWIW, our open front diff Subarus will also experience torque steer (since 50% of the torque is delivered frontwards), albeit to a much lower magnitude compared to a contemporary high torque FWD vehicle.
