# of cylinders vs total displacement

ok, there are plenty of V6s around 2.5L. my question is, which is more effiecent (both for fuel economy and power/torque generation) and why. please note, this is not a specific question about the EJ25, but about engine mechanics in general. what does lots of small cylinders provide that less larger cylinders doesn't, and vis a versa?

Actually, they made engines that were as small as 2.0 with 12 cy.
and they wined to 15 or 16 thousand RPM and some went even higher.
But NO torque in those babies!!!:nuetron:
