    if you opt for the Jag inline 6 it has 240 horsepower and weighs 2300lbs

    If you go the LS3 is has 430 horsepower and weights 1900lbs due to less engine and transmission weight.

    Both are the same cost, hmm

    Why the fuck anyone would go for the Jag motor is beyond me. Unreliable piece of shit that costs too much to repair.

    My first thought as well. Those can't hold up well in any kind of accident.

    so many other more reliable choices for your 180k car if you dont want high horsepower.

    Classic engine for a classic-styled car. With the Jaguar I6, it will probably sound/feel very close to the authentic cars.

    If you want classic-styled car with a modern engine, either get this car with the LS3, or pick up a Weissmann MF3.

    Who the fuck would pick the Jag engine?

    Unless you're a douche just wanting to say "yeah I have a Jag engine under the hood" to make it seem like a even more prestigious car

    The LS3 puts out more power than the LS6, and it's nowhere near as complicated as those Nissan hunks of shit. Way to make an awesome suggestion.

    i would like to draw more attention to this post :rofl:

    VR38detts are assumingly the GTR engine, very expensive and heavy

    LS6 makes less power than a ls3 and is significantly rarer.

    VQ35's and 37's are both shockingly aweful NVH nightmare engines that still weigh more than the LS3
