    I test drove both and went with the 5.7. Mpg ratings wouldn't make much of a difference, and I would rather have the power than not.

    The way I viewed that was if I was doing 75mph on a freeway in the 5.7, the 4.6 would have to work that much harder to maintain that speed thus higher RPM's thus less MPG.

    Actually, I found 4.6 engine quite good. I was originally shopping for a Tacoma when I just for the heck of it test drove a 4.6 Tundra. I was so impressed by how it drove I bought one. After deciding to get a Tundra, I have read a lot of threads on various forums, which convinced me to go with 5.7. But 4.6 is no slouch.

    Are you maybe trying to get to 50 posts to sell something? Just a hunch as you are commenting on a post so old that most people who participated in this thread are probably dead now.
