The result, I seem to recall, is that the TR4 has better torque and generally more get up and go than does the TR6.
TR4 was 2138cc, TR6 was 2498. I have only driven a TR4 a handful of times... a gorgeous car, to be sure, but I'd much rather have a TR250 (with the 6 cylinder). Beautiful, AND with the bigger engine!
