What is the fastest 4 cylinder car?
A '99 Eclipse GSX owned and driven by Brent Rau is the fastest 4 cylinder in the world in the 1/4 mile. It has run a 6.97@198mph. It has a 2 liter engine. As far as I know the fastest 4 cylinder car is a 1991 Eagle Talon TSI owned by John Shepherd with a 1/4 mile time of 7.70 secs @ 191.32 MPH. Acording to Hot VWs national racing records 4 cylinder A class dragster driven by Kris Lauffer truned in a 1/4 mile time of 6.60 sec in Sept '03 and a top speed of 203.98 mph in Oct '03

1992-1994 Jaguar xj220, TT 3.5L v6, 542hp/476ft-lbs. 217mph
its not, most 6 cylnder cars are rear wheel drive, to im improve handling, take a look at the old BMW 5 series m sport, as far as i know the most powerfull and fastest car of …its time.
"Yes, they are if you want to save gas. But some people don't like it given the fact that they don't have much power." 4-cylinder engines respond quite well to forced induct…ion systems. A turbocharged 2.0 can make as much or more power than a naturally aspirated engine of more than double the size while still being very fuel efficient (if you can stand to drive like your grandmother.) Of course the power bands are quite different. In lager engines power is present mostly at lower engine speeds and tend to decline rapidly at higher RPMs. Turbochargers take time to build boost pressure or "spool up" thus their power is created at higher engine speeds and can continue to gain power until redline and beyond. 4-cylinder engines, which are smaller and weigh less, are capable of running at much higher engine speeds than larger engines. They have a large enough RPM range to be able to make up for "turbo-lag" (the sluggish, low RPM range before the turbo pressurizes and starts making power) and take advantage of the maximum turbo pressure for longer amounts of time per gear. And, if you drive it easy-like and don't allow the turbo to spool much you will still retain the excellent gas mileage of a smaller displacement engine.
See this post: http://www.gassavers.org/archive/index.php/4-cylinder-trucks/t-410.html It looks like you may have to fool some computers, depending on how old your car is…. For example, the computer might falsely sense a misfire and add more fuel to those cylinders, or increase fuel to the others to compensate. I've been trying to think of how to do this myself to make my own hybrid. If so, though, you might be able to tie the sensors from the working cylinders to the computer inputs of the missing ones. That way (and you may have to buffer it off depending on the electronics) they get the same signals so it thinks all is well in the missing gaps. I feel like you'd have an easier time with a carbureted engine. Joel

Exactly what it sounds like, one operates with a maximum of 4 piston cylinders and one uses a max of 6. Extra info: Although 6 cylinders may have more power as in hors…epower, 4 cylinders can usually get a lot more miles to the gallon
Among production cars: European model of Honda Integra Type R 1997-2001 with advertised top speed 234 km/h and last model of European specs Honda Civic Type-R with advertised …235 km/h. The later DC5 Integra models should be even faster without the 180 km/h speed restriction obligatory in Japan.
Yes, why not as long as the both 12 volt what's the problem.
4 cylinder means that the engine has 4 pistons it means it has 4 pistons. the number of pistons can tell you how much speed and how much power
1992-1996 Honda Prelude VTEC could reach 240km/h at the rev limiter.
Basically, one cylinder isn't firing for one of a number of reasons. The most common cause is an igntion fault. This will cause the engine to feel and sound "lumpy", and the p…ower would be greatly reduced. The best way to find the cylinder which is responsible is quite simple but care must be taken. Firstly if you hate electric shocks as much as I do, find a proper pair of electricians insulated pliers, and even some decent rubber gloves if you can aswell. Start the engine, and one at a time, use the pliers to remove a lead from the top of one spark plug, if the engine almost stops, or gets worse in any way, it is not that piston which isn't firing. Repeat the proccess, one at a time, you will know which piston ISNT firing when you remove the plug lead, and there is no change in the engine sound, this is your defective cylinder. Its just a case then of looking at the condition of the spark plug and asessing the cause of the misfire before carrying out repairs. BEWARE:- THE LEADS WHICH CONNECT TO THE SPARK PLUGS CARRY SEVERAL THOUSANDS OF VOLTS - HENCE RUBBER GLOVES AND INSULATED PLIERS
The RS' top speed is the seventh-fastest at the lower end of the game's high-performance vehicles at 160 km/h (100 mph), however its acceleration is the fastest of any car in …the game, and its handling is excellent. The Sultan RS is clearly a sports car tuned for asphalt racing, with hard suspension and low profile tires, making it difficult to drive off road, or on wet or uneven roads. It lacks ABS as is customary with many ultra-lightweight track cars. The brakes are powerful, bringing the vehicle from its top speed to a standstill complete stop in very short distances (unlike other sports cars).
the lotus exige 260s is the fastest non turbo 4 cylinder car...it will spring to 60 in 4 seconds flat, run the qtr n 12.7 seconds, and top out at 155... It is not turbocharged…, but does have a supercharger...the fastest normially aspirated four cylnder is likely the Honda s2000 which is now out of production whch had 237hp and a top speed of 155.
