What is the largest capacity engine you've ever owned?

Perhaps you'd prefer to rate your engines on power instead of capacity which is fine by us.

Mine was a 2.0 TFSi turbo which put out 225bhp.

Maybe one day I'll own something of the 4.0 liter mark! I'll stick with my nippy little 1.4 for now! 150bhp from something quite light must be better than 200bhp from something twice as heavy! I might work this out one day and see where the power/weight balance is.

Those Jeeps are really solidly built @claymore a friend of mine has just bought one and it's a monster on wheels. He takes it off road as well and uses it properly.

Biggest capacity was a 2.8 V6 lump in my old 1986 Lancia Thema. It was actually a Volvo engine with a measly 170hp but lots of low end torque gave a satisfying push. Biggest power was my R33 Skyline with a 2.6 straight 6 this time with 2 turbos. A few breathing mods let it make 380hp on the dyno, well within the capabilities of a RB engine.
