Seriously, Mazda made some compelling little V6s - we got the 1.8 in the MX-3 and the 2.5L in the 626 & MX-6 - and I miss how fun and spirited those engines were. Even Ward listed the 2.5L as one of their best engines in the world, ad Ford used it as the basis for their later DOHC Duratec engines (and purportedly some of the EcoBoost V6 designs as well, but I’ve not confirmed that).
