It’s a complex question, and we literally got thousands of responses (and strong opinions) from performance enthusiasts like you.

Based on your answers, we’ve created a list of the top 10 engines of all time. Check back as we reveal the list over the next 10 days and unveil your #1 factory performance engine ever.
