Unusual Internal-Combustion Engines

Recommended Posts

Not all directly car related but found this interesting. Amazing to see the variety in engine designs and only a couple of them survived the test of time, and one of those was killed by the climate change monkeys.

Found this particularly interesting - for obvious familiarity reasons  :)

Basically, it's a pair of 6-chamber heads joined in a V, with v-shaped pistons between them. Compression and expansion happens with all the benefits of a piston engine, with the lack of stress inherent in a rotary.

With the emissions of a 2-stroke, since it has to suck air in at the apex of the V through a single point and EFI on this engine will be a bitch to add.
