I've noticed that in magazines like Sport Compact Car, that a large amount of the writers/contributers for the magazine Pretty much imply, or in a couple cases say it outright that the 2JZ is the second best motor that came from a Japanese Car, The first, they say, is usually the RB26DETT, from the Nissan Skyline. We're not talking about which is the better car, but rather which is the better engine. Although I would much rather drive my Supra than a Skyline, don't get me wrong, their awesome cars. Is there any Logic to this? That alot, not all, but alot of people and Automotive writers that consider the RB26DETT Superior to the Supra 2JZ-GTE. I can't find the reason, so I'm wondering if anyone knows a reason why the RB26 is a better engine or is it a case of "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, and since they were never officially sold in the states and only imported and since it has to go through so much red tape it costs WAY more than you could buy one in Japan For. I'm also not saying the 2JZ is better, I don't know enough about the RB26 to come to an Objective, Unbiased Opinion about which TT inline-6 is better? I would put my money on the 2JZ, but, like I said, I don't have the info to come up with an argument that would withstand scrutiny.
Thanks for helping me understand this.
