Do you fellow Cadillac lovers prefer pushrod type engines or the DOHC/SOHC setup? and why? For me, I prefer the pushrod design in anything with 8 cylinders or more. I say this because pushrod engines offer more low end torque, which IMO is what you want when you are lugging around big heavy cars and trucks. Now for the smaller 4 & 6 cylinder motors, I think having a DOHC or SOHC setup is best because you dont really need a lot of low end torque in a small Honda. and because an OHC setup works well with a manual tranny. It revs fast, you shift a lot, it seems to work well. For some reason, almost all of the 4 cylinders and a lot of the 6, 8 and 12 cylinders seem to be SOHC or DOHC, why is everyone abandoning the pushrod setup?
