What is the difference between odd firing order and even firing order?

Many V6 engines have been based on V8 designs. One characteristic of these engines is a notorious odd-firing behavior. Purpose-built V6 engines use one crankpin per cylinder for a smooth ignition 120 degree ignition pattern. Most V8 engines share a common crankpin between opposite cylinders in each bank. That is, the crankshaft has just four pins for eight cylinders, and a cylinder fires every 90 degree for smooth operation. When two cylinders are "removed" for a V6 variant, the firing order becomes uneven. One 90 degree ignition is removed, so the engine fires at 90 degree, 90 degree, 90 degree, and skips one 90 degree. This leads to a rough idle and increased stress on the engine mounts and chassis.

What is better 8V or 16V engine?

Obviously 16v. The number in the name is the amount of cylinders, while the "v" is the engine configuration. So 16v is better because it has 2 times as many cylinders. Usually when the "V" is after the number it refers to the number of valves not cylinders. So a V8 16v could mean an eight cylinder v configuration with 16 valves.
