SBC is all around great, cheap for parts and so little changes over the years

Bad Mitsubishi / chrysler 2.6l , most of them sounded like they had a monkey with a hammer trying to get out

no 2.6
they used it in the early 80s in front wheel drive cars and Ram 50 p/u

Apparently they used the same motor in fork lifts and it was "great"

theres gotta be worse than the 305, its the same block as 350 just... less fun. I agree with most good engines here so ill add a few of my worst; dodge shadow 2.2l its just so slow and troublesome, chevys 2.4 is good but impossible to work on, same for chrysler 3.5 and you dont see so meany of them around anymore, maybe fords 4.2 v6
