  1. It is a “3.8L V6” engine not a “3.8L V8”. I don’t understand why everyone on the internet is capable of getting this minute fact wrong.

    1. Hi Irishking07, I haven’t played that game in a while but I believe there are two 3.8L engines, a V6 and V8. Here, the V8 was found to be the best performing.
