Not necessarily, you could always supercharge the 4L and have a bit of whine under the bonnet along with a bit more grunt :wink:

but then the V8 boy's could could whack a blower out the bonnet and have more grunt and would look alot better than a supercharger on a 4.0

even if you attempted it you would have serious clearance issues. gilmer belts sap power as well, so you need to be using them in a pretty strong motor to start with.
