A lot of four-cylinder engines get overlooked because they have as much flair as a side salad. But there are a few 4-pots that quickly gained iconic status. Here they are!

All versions of the 3SGE engine made during the 90's were arguably the greatest 4 cylinder engines ever made. Their motorsport pedigree is legendary. They should have put the gen 5 one in the last 2nd gen (or even 3rd gen) MR2's though.

@Nathan Vonlanthen ea888 is just the evolution of the old 827. you can buy a ready car for about 20k plus shipping coz theres only one place in world they can extract 1200hp from a 4cyl of 1970’s. btw quickest 4cyl is an ecotech followed by c20ex tho the quickest chassis car has an ea827 with bits from other variations

Another great 4 banger in my opinion is the 1.4 abarth 595 engine. It's small but in some variants produces 190hp, and it can be tuned to much more than that. It's also probably the best sounding "normal" 4 cylinder.

Lsj ? Ecotec . Stock forms are alright but the stock rods and pistons are good for about 450hp the block is good well past that . A simple turbo swap with supporting mods usually yields 350-400plus hp . They are simple motors with great reliability as long as you maintain it in spec

Surely the Opel / Cosworth developped red top should be in that list, the great 20XE and the turbo version the C20LET should be high on that list. Their fuel economy was great but that's not all. They had really great quality components from stock (pre machined inlet and exhaust ports, sodium filled valves, forged pistons ...) great power and torque capability and great running capability

Quick note though, i dont beat on the engine, race or modify it. Just as a daily in and out of a highway driving machine, it does super well and good on gas. Like i said, i hope to see good feedback one day by some tuners on the LTG.. :)

Some mentioned the Opel engine: The C 20 XE (naturally aspirated) engine from OPEL was the most efficient engine ( fuel vs power , g/kWh) for nearly 2 decades. The engines in the video may have more power, but they are not that well designed and smart. It is a sign of our time that only figures (HP) count.

I'd call the 1.9 R4 8v TDI from VW group... Yes it's a diesel from the early 90's but the model I had was a 1998 model, owned 20 years later, 250K on the clock, still hauled 2 tonnes up to over 150mph if I wanted it to, or gave me 85+mpg if I wanted it to. Basic engineering, stone age technology, amazing results in my opinion.

Saab Trionic 5 Engine. Forged crank and rods from factory, and reinforced pistons. It can easily run 500whp+ without breaking. Usually you run a Trionic 5 bottom end with a Trionic 7 head gasket, (trionic 7 is a newer engine and its head gasket is unbreakable almost) and also trionic 5 cams since they are a bit sharper. You have to lathe the pistons if you are to use a trionic 7 head gasket. But T5 bottom end with T7 head gasket, and also T7 injection, you can go up to 700hp without aftermarket parts and ECU. You might need to get some harder valve springs but other than that you have an awesome 2 liter turbocharged engine! A mix of a B205R engine and B204

Glad to see the VAG EA888 engine on here. It's not the most characterful engine here but it's extremely refined and stout AF with a tune and a few bolt-ons (317 lbs./ft with just a stage 1 tune and nothing else). That's big V8 torque from just 2.0 liters. Diesels make lots of torque too but don't rev to 6,800+ rpm.

Definitely not a popular choice, but personnally, I would've included the 1.9TDI ALH engine from VW.

Even with a heavy tune and boost, it's still very reliable and susprisingly powerful! At least powetful enough to throw off people on street...

Toyota's 4AGE!!!! 20v plus the supercharged variant, the 4AGZE, and the Formula Atlantic version made crazy power from such a small capacity. Can't forget those at all. Saab's B234 off the 9000 Aero is also a crazy motor. In it's day, it's in gear acceleration was quicker than damn near anything Ferrari or Lamborghini had to offer. And it was built like a brick s**t-house.

Would've liked to have seen a Saab B234 or B204 on this list.

Do you really think the Twin Spark variant of the infamous Pratola Serra, an engine built only to be cheap in which was added an useless secondary spark plug because the Alfa Romeo customers wanted a Twin Spark, is one of the greatest four cylinder engine of the last twenty years?

2.0L Supercharged or Turbocharged LNF/LDK/LHU Ecotec, Or the 2.4L LE5 Ecotec, should be added to this list.

Honorable mention must be made for the BMW M10, the only four-cylinder engine ever to win a Formula One championship.

Honda K20/K24. I’d pick that over any one on this list. I’ve heard of ones with the right modifications getting over 900HP out of the stock block.

still a relatively new engine, but the skyactiv 2.0 in Mazda 3 and mx5 is impressive

My favorite 4cyls may not be popular: 4G63T K series (K20C1) S14B25 Those are my three favorite. They’re just iconic.

Twin spark by far.. it just needed good oil and to keep an eye on the oil level.. then it would revs forever

1995 Suzuki Swift HATCHBACK 4 cylinder engine 1.3L or 1.6L came in 8 valve or 16 valve depending on year. Was very reliable. Called "Pocket Rocket" by Road & Track. Came with Turbo option on GT 100+ hp.

If we go back just a little further the turbo 2.3 svo engine is pretty bad ass. For as cheap and simple as it is it can make pretty respectable power

A relative newcomer I've only just seen this video. 2 years have passed and no equivalent for Six Cylinders. BMW inline 6's just don't get enough airtime on this channel!!

The Toyota 22rte Engine should be on the list ! Although in stock form it made 135hp and 175TQ. A simple turbo up grade and more boost and fuel and makes well over 300hp reliable

In think you should add the M42 and M44 BMW engines. They are prety fun and durable, and with a lot of tecnology for the time !
