Looks like Ward's Auto doesn't want to be suspicious of being biased to Nissan, so they remove the VQ this year.
I can tell you one thing - the Honda SOHC engine should not belong there. DOHC (dual camshaft) engines are always better than SOHC (single camshaft) engines, which are slow and torqueless. I don't know why Honda keeps making them, and I don't know why it made onto the list. Why Ward's Auto, why????
