That's what I was thinking too! The amount of force exerted on the head of each piston would greatly overcome any gravitational pull to one side of a cylinder, besides, the rings are compressed in such a way that it exerts its own gravity equally throughout the circumference of each cylinder.
As for I-6 vs. V-6, there's also a higher torque rating with an inline 6 vs. the V-6, although I'm too tired right now to explain why that takes place.
In any case, its a good question, and one that many people have pondered but haven't found an answer-keep the discussion going!!!
