    A sleeper Innova? Put the 3.5L V6 engine of the IS350 on it. Everyone loves a high-revving 300hp+ V6 NA engine. Hehehehe

    That's a good entry level engine for Innova GR.

    This will do it:

    The V6 twin turbo from the Lexus LS500

    416hp Innova GR.

    The Alphard is much bigger than an Innova so it needs that bigger engine.

    The Alphard’s really not that big compared to an Innova. Just marginally longer, around more than 200mm I think, and its barely wider than an Innova.

    100 kg lang weight difference ng Alphard and Innova. So yes if you want to know what a 3.5 V6 Innova feels like, drive an Alphard.

    Biggest advantage of the Alphard though is the lower center of gravity so more comfortable and better handling.

    Spoiler: 3.5 V6 paired with 1900 kg doesn't feel as fast as the horsepower figures suggest. When I drove the RX350 before, was surprised that the uphill slopes in Tagaytay Highlands weren't a piece of cake anymore just because there were 4 on board. Iba pa rin low end torque ng diesel.

    Highway driving is a different story though. A V6 overtakes with ease with a linear powerband.

    Might be because of the altitude too. Non turbocharged cars perform worse in high altitudes than those with turbo.

    that's because turbocharged diesels and some turbo / supercharged gasoline engines reaches their peak torque on an early rpms. HP figures on N/A engines only being felt on straight roads like highways reaching certain speeds. again ibang iba parin ang driving feel at hatak ng turbo diesel.

    Turbo gas is much better to drive. Even the cars with small displacement turbo gas engines are better in terms of acceleration against the usual crop of PPVs, pickups, and MPVs.

    Except the Euro turbo diesels, they are more refined and better in driving feel.

    If you want to make the most of NA gas engines, rev them higher.
