Is the MV446 a good engine for a truck?
It is a great engine but it tends to be very thirsty. If you do get the truck, with the MV446 it is very important to keep it tuned up within an inch of its life. The SV engines and the MV404 are not nearly as particular in order to be economical. Regardless of what is under the hood, any IHC is still miles ahead of anything from F*** or C****.
Which is better the MV446 or the sv345?
At a guess, I would say the MV446 had as much more power over the MV404 as the SV392 had over the SV345. The SV392 and the MV404 were very close in hp and torque ratings. Just a side note. If you ever need to do any tune up work on an MV engine, they time off of the #1 cylinder not the #8 like the SV engines. I hope this helps. Mark O.
